Handshake Log-In


Welcome to Handshake!

Ohio State is excited to announce our new partnership with Handshake, a modern platform for college recruiting. Handshake is replacing our former system, FutureLink. Through Handshake, you will have access to features like:

Managing all of your campus recruitment efforts
Updating your job postings, viewing applicants, and more using Handshake’s mobile experience

Benefits of using Handshake 

Reach all students with one posting:
Although the Center for Career and Professional Success targets Arts and Sciences students, Handshake is a centralized career service network, which means you can target students from all majors across campus.

Powerful Applicant Filtering
Your postings will be visible to and applicable by all students, but you can screen applications based on criteria provided by students’ profiles.

Flexibility in how you receive resumes:
You can opt to have resumes sent directly to a designated recruiting coordinator, allow Handshake to hold the submitted resumes for a recruiter to log in and review, or direct candidates to your internal application system.

On-Campus Recruiting & Career Fair Management
Schedule on-campus interviews, register for career fairs, set up info sessions. Then manage logistics and payment - all on Handshake.

Increase brand awareness among students:
Completing your company's profile in Handshake allows proactive students to research your organization before applying or interviewing.

Engage with students directly:
You may include the recruiter or hiring manager's contact information on each position posting.

If you have a Disability and rely on a screen reader or the keyboard for access to your computer you will experience difficulty using the Handshake application. As the University works with Handshake to improve accessibility, please contact handshake@osu.edu for assistance in navigating and using this application. A member of our team will respond within 2 business days to assist you.
