OSU’s new job/internship/co-op website: Handshake

Handshake Goes Campus Wide

Ohio State has switched to Handshake – a modern career development platform for students to explore career employment, internships and other opportunities, based on their interests, major and skills. Handshake will replace Buckeye Careers Network (Symplicity).

Handshake offers many exciting new features, including:

  • Relevant feed of job and internship opportunities
  • News feed containing the latest information from career services offices and favorite employers
  • Resources specifically matching students interests


Student accounts are preloaded and can be accessed at http://handshake.osu.edu/, using their name.# and password. Students will need to complete their profiles with details, such as work experiences, skills, interests and organizations. Next, students can explore the many resources and tools that are available in Handshake – from learning about jobs and industries to interview tips and resume templates.  BCN accounts can be accessed only through June 29.
