Make a Highlander Connection! Get started on Handshake!

Utilize this guide to assist with getting started on Handshake, from signing up to posting jobs, with troubleshooting tips for each step of the way.

1. Create a user account 

You will need a user account in order to log in and use Handshake. If you've received an invite from career services, you can follow the link to take you to the account creation process. If you're signing up without an invite, go to to create an employer account. You can view the details of this process, with screenshots, by checking out How to Create a User Account

Troubleshooting tips:

  • If you're having difficulties receiving the confirmation email, try checking your spam and junk folders to ensure that emails are not being filtered out. Add to your email contacts or address book, and lastly, check with your IT department and ask them to unblock Handshake or check for quarantined emails. Then, resend the confirmation email once you've taken these steps. You can resend the confirmation by logging into Handshake and using the link in Step 4 on the right side of your screen, as pictured here: 


2. Join your existing company on Handshake, or create a new one

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

Troubleshooting tips:

  • Use your corporate email address if you have one. This will ensure that your company profile is shown to you if it is in Handshake, and can expedite the process of connecting to your company. Schools also will tend to decline users with generic email addresses. 
  • The goal of this step is to connect you with your company.
3. Request to connect with GSC

You must request and receive approval from career services prior to posting jobs there. You can choose Gordon State College during your sign-up process.

While waiting for approval, please complete our Employer Recruitment Forms so that our Career Center will have a better understanding of your talent needs.

Troubleshooting tips:

  • It can take up to five business days to approve your request. If you do not receive a response within that time frame, contact the GSC Career Services department.
4. Take action!
  • Once you've connected with Career Services, you will be able to post jobs, request on-campus interview schedules, manage your applicants, and more. Here are some quick links to more detailed articles on these topics:
