Post a Job or Internship

The Center for Professional Development is pleased to use Handshake to give employers the opportunity to connect with Dartmouth students as well as students from hundreds of schools and universities to share jobs, internships and event information. By posting in our system, you are thereby agreeing to our policies. Please consider that our students graduate in June when entering your qualifications in your Handshake post.

If you are already a Handshake user, go to the “schools” option and request access to Dartmouth College in order to post your opportunity.  

If you do not have a Handshake account, you will need to take the following steps to create an account before you may post your opportunity:

Step 1: Create a user account, free of charge, by visiting the following link: Handshake (

Tips on how to Create an Employer User Account, Join a Company and Connect with Schools

Step 2: Join your existing company on Handshake

You will need to be connected to your company profile on Handshake prior to taking any actions with schools. Your company should pull up based on the domain of your email address, if it is already in Handshake. If it isn’t, you should see the option to create a new company profile. You can learn more about the new company creation process here.

Step 3: Request to Connect with Schools

You must request and receive approval from Dartmouth College prior to posting jobs there. You can choose Dartmouth College during your sign-up process and can always select more at any time afterwards. 

The article School Network Management will show you how to choose additional schools in Handshake after you have been set up in the system.

Demonstrate Your Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)

We encourage employers to share their commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout the recruiting process.  This could entail sharing Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion information and supports that your organization has within position and organization descriptions, on your website, during your employer events, and throughout the interview process.  In addition, diverse employee representation involved in the recruiting process can signal an organization’s commitment to DEI.  This recent article from the National Association of Colleges & Employers titled Conscious Job Seeking: Assessing Employer’s Commitment to DEI shares sample questions that students may ask a potential employer during an interview.  Employer representatives should be prepared to speak to their organization’s commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion as students seek this transparency and authenticity in the recruiting process.

We encourage employers to use inclusive language in their job and event postings, and recommend reviewing Handshake’s blog post “70 Inclusive language principles that will make you a more successful recruiter” for more guidance.
