Posting a job is free!
Handshake is LSU’s source for job postings, on-campus interviews, recruiting events, career-planning workshops and resources, networking, and managing job searches.
Through Handshake, you can post full-time, part-time, internship, co-op, summer and volunteer opportunities. The system is password-protected and available to LSU students, faculty, staff, and registered alumni 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Thank you for your interest in recruiting LSU students and alumni, and we wish you much success in filling your positions!
To list your position on Handshake, visit this helpful how-to article. Once you enter the information for your position, the status of your posting will remain “pending” until reviewed by a staff member. Open positions are posted for 45 days. For more information, please contact Annemarie Menard.
If the position you wish to fill requires or could be best performed by students in specific disciplines, you may wish to contact LSU Olinde Career Center staff to explore the option of converting your part-time job opportunity into an internship opportunity. A targeted internship opportunity will draw the attention of more skilled applicants, and both you and the candidate would benefit. If this approach is of interest to you, contact Sue Feinberg, assistant director of Experiential Education, at 225-578-2162.
Guidelines for third-party recruiters
Third-party recruiters must agree to specific guidelines when using the job posting and résumé referral service.
Consider hosting a virtual info session, promoted through Handshake. You may choose to use a video conferencing tool like Zoom or Google Hangouts for this so that you can have groups of students dial in and view or listen to an overview of your organization and opportunities, and ask questions. View this help article on creating an event in Handshake. You will want to place any video conferencing link in the event description.
- Post any open internships or other job opportunities in Handshake so students can access these online in the absence of a networking event.
- Source candidates using Handshake’s powerful filtering tools, then direct message
or email students you would like to connect with using the email address provided

narrow down to your prime candidates:
