MILLION JOBS & INTERNSHIPS
Handshake

Handshake allows students to find on- and off- campus internship and job opportunities. Filter by location or industry to narrow down your search. Alumni can also utilize handshake to post jobs and search specifically for Hiram College students. 

Connect With Employers

Want to learn more about a career field before applying for internships? Looking to network but not sure where to start? Handshake allows you to message employers, make connections, and simplify the networking process. 

When looking at job postings, you have the option to directly message the employer. Introduce yourself, ask questions, or set yourself apart! This is your chance to shine.

Ever heard of a coffee chat? Book an informal 15-minute one-on-one conversation with an employer to learn more about a specific role, industry, or company. This is a great informal way to learn more about your interests and ask questions pertaining to your career goals.

Handshake is a great resource to find career fairs and events both on our campus and in the surrounding area. Check out the “events” page to find what works for you.
