We are excited to announce that FIU Career & Talent Development has partnered with Handshake - a modern career development platform - to replace our previous Panther JobLink Symplicity System and be your one-stop-shop for launching your career. 

Handshake uses cutting edge technology to help our FIU students and alumni more easily connect with employers and source jobs and internships, event information, and On-Campus Recruiting opportunities.

Students and alumni will now be able to request appointments with our Career Coaches, while still accessing thousands of jobs and internships, and RSVP for our events and professional development opportunities.

Employers can use Handshake as a recruitment tool, to identify qualified candidates for open positions and manage on-campus recruitment activities.

How to Create an Employer Account in Handshake

Handshake Employer FAQs

  • What is Handshake?

    Handshake is the fast and powerful new recruiting platform for recruiting FIU students and alumni.  It uses cutting edge technology to better connect you with qualified candidates.

    Use Handshake to post job and internship listings, register for career fairs, manage on-campus recruiting, and message students and alumni who meet your qualifications. You will also be able to promote your brand more effectively by customizing your employer profile, job postings, and events to be more visually appealing to students.  

  • Did Handshake replace Panther JOBLink?
    Yes. As of July 1, 2017 the FIU Talent and Development Office has replaced Panther JOBLink with the Handshake platform. Multiple emails were sent to our registered employers requesting that they save any relevant history or documents from their Panther JOBLink accounts. After June 30, 2017 the Panther JOBLink system data is no longer available.
  • What do I need to register as an Employer?
    To have your Employer account approved, you must provide a complete company address, a company phone number (please put under the "private," this is automatically hidden from students), and a contact name (not a postition title or department).
  • What if I need additional help using Handshake?
    Handshake has a support site that should be able to help answer all of your questions! View it here. Of course, you're always welcome to call one of our three locations and ask for help, too.

Employer Quick Guide to Handshake



Attention Job/Internship Seekers:

FIU Career and Talent Development acts only as an intermediary between employers posting job and internship opportunities and candidates searching for job and internship opportunities. Career and Talent Development is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, Career and Talent Development has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the employment opportunities posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings. When searching for job and internship opportunities, please keep in mind that employers are able to enter their own jobs into our system. In addition, because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, Career and Talent Development cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. You should use your own judgment when applying for opportunities found in Handshake. Please DO NOT provide an employer your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, or any other confidential information. A genuine employer should not request that information in the initial application. If you think a job or internship posting seems suspicious, please bring it to our attention.
