If you only see Profile and Fairs in your navigation bar, this indicates that your Handshake profile is not yet linked to your school.
In order to be connected with your institution, and to have full access to all of your institution’s content and services, you’ll need to be connected to your institution. Here are a few options to help you accomplish this connection:
- Check your email to see if you received an invitation from your institution to start using Handshake. This email will contain links to help you claim your institution sponsored Handshake account.
- Try logging into Handshake using the same User ID and password you use to log on to your institution’s website (to check your account or access the library for example). Handshake may have created an account for you using this information as provided by your institution’s Registrar.
- If you’re unable to login successfully with your institution User ID and password, try resetting your password on Handshake (using your institution email address as your User ID).
- If you’re still having trouble, contact the career service centre at your institution to request a Handshake invitation. To find your institution’s contact information, use the search bar at the top of any Handshake page to search for your institution. On the left side of the institution’s profile page, you’ll find Contact Information and the institution’s Public Staff List, either of which you can use to contact the institution. Be sure to include the same email address you used to create your account on Handshake in the email. It will be easiest for the institution to verify your affiliation with the institution if you send your email from your .ac.uk email account.
