What if I signed up for the wrong account type?

Hilary -

If you're a student or alumni, but accidentally registered as a mentor or employer on Handshake-- no worries! You can still sign up for your student/alumni account using the same email address you used to register for the first account. Kindly reach out to us at Support if you wish to delete your extra account that was created by mistake, but rest assured you can keep it if you wish. 

Go here to sign up for your student/alumni account: https://app.joinhandshake.com/register 

To learn more about signing up on Handshake, please check out our guide!
