New to hiring Northland students? 

Signing up is easy and takes less than five minutes.

Create a company employer profile

Complete the profile information. When you get to your company information, if your company is already listed, please add yourself as a contact. If your company is not listed, consider setting up a company that has your address, website and phone so students can research where they will be working. Select Create New Company.

Once you have set up your log-in information and completed your employer profile, Northland will review your request to access Handshake. 

  • If you are approved, you’ll receive an email, and from that point on, you can enter jobs into the system. Northland also reviews jobs for content and reserves the right to approve or decline.
  • If you are declined, you are welcome to contact Northland to ask about the reason why.

Post jobs or host job events

Put Handshake to work for you! From your Handshake homepage, you can:

  • Post a job.
  • Request an Interview. Please make this request at least three weeks in advance of the day you are interested in interviewing.
  • Create an event.
  • Check out the left navigation bar to find more information on your jobs that are active and expired, along with interviews, events and fairs.
