Handshake at NMSU

NMSU Career Services is pleased to announce the adoption of Handshake. Our new platform allows students and employers to connect (and much more!) with a modern, user-friendly interface.

Why use Handshake?

Handshake users have the ability to explore and find amazing job and internship opportunities. The platform changes to your customized needs, pushing out information that is relevant and timely based on your career interests, experiences and major. Handshake is also where you will apply for jobs, see relevant career articles, sign up for events and workshops and access the on-campus recruiting program.
