Listing a job or internship with Rollins College is easy and free of charge! Hire a Rollins student today! Click here for instructions on how to create an employer Handshake account or join an existing company within Handshake. 

1. First, visit Click "Employer".

2. Fill out the information requested then check the box agreeing to the “Terms of Service” and acknowledging that you have read the “Privacy Policy.” Click the Submit button to continue.

3. You will then see a window asking if you are a Third Party Recruiter.

  • If you are a third party recruiter, meaning that you are going to be posting jobs on behalf of another company, with the intent of finding candidates for that company to hire, then you must click the Yes, I am button and then read and agree to comply with Handshake’s third-party recruiting policies (by checking the agree to comply box). 
  • If you are not a third party recruiter (meaning you work for the employer you’re creating the account for), click the No, I am not button and click Finish.

4. You will be taken to a confirmation page, and you will shortly(within 5-10 minutes) receive a confirmation email (to the email address provided) with a link enabling you to confirm your account. You must click this link before you can proceed with the registration process. If you don't receive a confirmation email, see the steps outlined in this article on creating your account.

5. When you click the link in your confirmation email, you will be brought to a page that gives you an introduction to Handshake and our goals, and details how we can help you recruit on campus. Note the four numbered steps at the bottom of the page.

6. You are now ready to move to Step 3 of the process (Connect with Schools) and can either click 3. Connect with Schools or Continue.  You can search for "Rollins College" as a school you would like to connect with. When you locate "Rollins College", click Request to Connect. You will then need to wait for approval from the school. Approval at Rollins typically takes 1-2 weeks. 

7. This brings you to step 4 and you can either click 4. Find your Company or Continue; both selections will bring you to this page which is an overview of the company and how Handshake works with companies. 

8. Now click Continue to move to a page where you will provide us with information about your company. 

9. Once you've confirmed your account you'll need to connect it with an employer profile in Handshake

  • If your organization is already using Handshake, search for it by name. When your company’s name appears, you can select Join Company and an approval request will be sent to the existing staff members for security purposes.
  • If you have a different domain name than your company has, or if your company has not enabled Auto approve staff, and you try to join the company, you will move to “pending status” until you are approved by the company.  Once the company confirms that your user account is valid, you will receive an approval via email.

10.  If your company is not yet using Handshake, you can select “Create Company Profile” To learn more about how to create a company profile. Once you have been approved by your company or you have created a new one, you can start using Handshake to connect with quality candidates from the schools of your choice!
