Open All/Close All

To post student assistant jobs, we now use Handshake. How do I access Handshake?

Handshake Registration: Click link:

Select “Sign up for an Account”, click on “Employer”, and proceed with the registration. Your company/organization may already have an employer Handshake account, please search for it in “Step 3 of 4-Join Company” of the registration. If your company/organization does not have a Handshake account, please select “Create New Company” (right side). When you reach the “Connecting with Schools” step, CSUB will be defaulted as your school. You will also have the option of connecting with universities across the country. 

What if I have a grant? What would my "company name" be?

Use your academic department name, just as you would now.

Why should I create an account? Isn't that more work for me?

Creating an account is a one-time process that allows you full access to all your job postings. From your account you can post and pull jobs from any computer 24/7, you don't have to wait for us to post or pull your job.

In addition, the system will archive all of your past job postings. This will save you time in the long run, because it will allow you to re-post a job by pulling up the old one, making any changes you want and re-activating it.

What happens once I post a job? When do I get the hiring form (form 105)?

Once you post your job, the CECE will review and activate the job posting and create a form 105 that will be emailed to your email address. This process usually takes two working days or less.

What happens if I have a student in mind for the job?

You will post the job as you normally would and limit the posting to 1 day or pull it down as soon as you get the hiring form.

What if I need help with something in Handshake?

We are available during working hours to walk you through the process or to trouble-shoot any aspect of Handshake. Just call us at 654-3033 or email
