Rutgers–New Brunswick Handshake

Rutgers Handshake is the #1 platform for all things related to career success. Students can utilize Rutgers Handshake to access thousands of job and internship listings in the system, plus schedule appointments with career advisers, read employer reviews from other students, network with employers, register for career events, access exclusive online resources, and much more. Students who are eligible for the Federal Work-Study Program can explore those opportunities with the Student Employment Office.

Eligible incoming students automatically have Handshake accounts and do not need to request a new account. Therefore, incoming students need to wait for their student data to import from the Registrar and not complete an online form requesting a Handshake account. Please contact careers@echo.rutgers.edu with any questions or concerns.
