Student talking to employer at Career Fair

The Office of Career and Professional Development is excited to help your company connect with our students and alumni.

At the University of Hartford, we are proud to offer our students a platform where they can search for jobs and internships. Handshake is an application where employers and the community can list their professional opportunities for students to search easily. This is a great platform to use for event promotion and connect with students 1-on-1. Use Handshake to your advantage to find the perfect candidate from the UHart community.


Post jobs and on campus interviews, manage candidates, and more with Handshake.

After careful comparisons, we think that the Handshake system best meets the needs of our employers to connect with student and alumni candidates. We think you will agree. If you haven't already done so, please join Handshake and select University of Hartford as a school you wish to recruit from. Signing up is easy and takes less than 5 minutes. Expect to confirm your email via a message sent to your account as part of the sign up process if your company is joining for the first time.
