Signing up for a Handshake account is easy and takes less than 5 minutes.
Handshake is a modern platform for college recruiting that will replace Hire@TU at Towson University. Handshake offers the same recruiting functionality, including job postings, career fair registration, and on-campus interview scheduling in an intuitive, mobile-friendly design. You can even manage your on-campus recruiting activities at multiple campuses from one dashboard.
Here are some helpful dates to keep in mind while posting your jobs during the transition:

Hire@TU is a searchable online job posting and resume database that employers can use to post full-time, part-time jobs and internship opportunities. Hire@TU connects employers with thousands of Towson University students and alumni who have active Hire@TU accounts.
No! Hire@TU is a completely free service we offer employers.
Please do not set up a duplicate account. Go to the employer login site and click the link, “Forgot your password?” to generate a new password. If you have any questions, call the Career Center at 410-704-2233.
In the job posting under application instructions, please indicate how to apply. You also can select "Yes" under "Allow Online Referrals." Students then can apply directly through Hire@TU. Once a student applies, you will receive an email notification or you can check your account for referrals.
Students can choose to upload their resumes into Hire@TU. If candidates choose the option to provide access to their resumes, you can review them by clicking on the “View Resume” link. You may contact candidates via the email address provided and invite them to apply and request that they allow resume viewing.
Setting up an interview schedule through Hire@TU maximizes the number of qualified students and alumni that can apply. Only students who match the criteria you select will have access to your position and can apply.
The OCR Program is offered in late September through November and late February through April each year allowing you to recruit each semester.
To reserve a date, log in to Hire@TU, click “Schedules,” and then click “New Schedule Request.”
You must request a schedule for each job and/or internship position; include the job title and job ID number.
Once the schedule is confirmed, students may apply via Hire@TU by clicking “Interviews” and then clicking “Qualified Interviews." A list of all employers who recruit on campus is accessible when students log in to their Hire@TU accounts.
Hire@TU will notify you by email one week prior to the interview date to make your selections online. Please designate an alternate recruiter to make decisions if you are not available.
Participating in a career event provides a unique opportunity to talk with prospective candidates, collect resumes, and, more importantly, establish personal connections that do not exist when only reviewing resumes. Attending a career event provides an excellent opportunity to increase your visibility with TU students and alumni and to meet directly with a diverse group of candidates who are searching for job and internship opportunities.
Career fairs are held in the fall and spring each year. To find out more about these events, please visit our calendar. You also may log in to your Hire@TU account and click the “Career Events” tab on the home page. For more information, please contact the Career Center at 410-704-2233.
