Handshake for Employers


The ISU Career Center utilizes Handshake to post jobs, register for career fairs, and coordinate interview schedules.  A good job description which clearly communicates the job duties and qualifications is essential to getting good applicants.  Please visit our Job Description page if you need help creating a job Description.

You will need to create a Handshake account and connect with ISU to post jobs and network with students through Handshake.  Please see the instructions below for creating a Handshake account and connecting with ISU.

ISU Career Center will no longer post domestic employment positions (e.g. nannies/babysitters, care givers, private tutors, housekeepers, drivers, gardeners, etc.). To staff domestic positions, please refer to services such as Care.com or Craigslist. (Please note that, as a matter of course, we refer ISU students who are interested in domestic employment positions to the websites noted above.)

Idaho State University employment resources are provided free of charge to employers and to student job seekers. All hiring and compensation for work performed by student employees is handled directly between the student and the employer. Background checks on students applying for jobs may be required depending on the type of work a student is seeking. Employers and students are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials and the fit between the employer and the student applicant.

All job listings are posted at the discretion of Idaho State University.
