Current Students, Postdocs and Alumni
Log in to Handshake using your PennKey. All current undergraduates, graduate students and Penn postdocs should know their PennKey, PLEASE DO NOT sign-in with your e-mail address.
Attention incoming (Fall 2017) students - you are not eligible for our services until you arrive on campus and classes begin. Please do not attempt to open a Handshake account until then. Doing so may delay your ability to access the system at the proper time.
ATTENTION JOB SEEKERS: When searching for job and internship opportunities, please keep in mind that employers are able to enter their own jobs into our system. You should use your own judgment when applying for opportunities found in Handshake. Please DO NOT give an employer your Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers, or any other confidential information. A genuine employer should not request that information in the initial application. For example, from time to time imposters have represented themselves as being from a legitimate company, while in reality phishing for your personal information. No legitimate company would ask for your confidential information or would require you to handle a cash transaction prior to employment.
If you think a job posting seems suspicious, please bring it to our attention.
Penn Career Services tries to offer you a full range of actual job and internship opportunities, but we are not responsible for the legitimacy of the jobs posted or the employers using our system. For further information, please review our user agreement and terms and conditions.
