Employers

Post a Job

Handshake is SSU's primary job posting board for students and alumni. Employers can post available jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities on Handshake. To register:

  • Visit www.app.joinhandshake.com/register and select “Employer”.
  • Complete all required fields and agree to the Handshake Employer Guidelines. 
  • Join your existing company on Handshake, or create a new one by clicking the blue button that says "Create New Company" and request to connect with Sonoma State University.
  • Allow 1-2 business days for your company to be approved. Once approved, you'll be able to post jobs, manage applicants, and more. 
  • Businesses are only approved if they are licensed to do business and hold insurance. Please use your business address when creating your account.
  • Unfortunately, this excludes local families needing in-home support. Students use sites like care.com and sittercity.com to identify local child care opportunities.

Career Fairs

Virtual Job Fair (Fall): This fall we will hold a virtual job fair that connects students with employers who are recruiting for full and part-time work, internships, and other work experience opportunities. 

Career Fest (Spring): Spring 2021 we will host four days of unique Career Fairs. Learn more on Handshake and see which employers will attend.  

All registration for Career Fairs takes place via Handshake. Students can also register and view attending employers.
