    Employers can use the free K-State job board/career services platform – Handshake – to connect with K-State grads/alumni/students. Handshake is administered by the on-campus K-State Career Center and the K-State Alumni Association partners with the K-State Career Center with these services.

    Employers can use K-State’s Handshake to post jobs of all kinds – full time, internships, seasonal, part time - and identify qualified candidates for their open positions. Employers can also use Handshake to register for K-State career fairs and manage on-campus recruitment activities. In turn, students and alumni can use Handshake to easily connect with employers, search for jobs and internships, review career fair/event information, and manage on-campus interviewing.
