  3. Fill out your profile.
    If there are already details in your profile, this means Iowa has pre-loaded your information. Check to be sure all pre-loaded information is correct, especially your major and GPA (if included); if you find any errors, contact careercenter@uiowa.edu and let the Career Center know so they can correct it.For more information on filling out your profile, refer to How to Drive Profile Completion.
  4. Explore Handshake!
    Use your home page, the top search bar, and filters to look for companies and jobs you’re interested in learning more about or applying to. Remember, you can always save your searches in Handshake, so finding relevant employers and jobs will be easy.
  5. Follow some jobs and employers you’re interested in.
    When you follow an employer or a job, you can begin filtering based on companies you follow. You’ll also receive alerts when the job application window is closing or when an employer is attending an event or fair at your school.

Once you’ve taken these five steps, you’ll be on your way to using Handshake to help you efficiently and effectively launch your career!
