Hiring Students & Alumni


Handshake is the primary recruiting platform for the University of Montana. Employers can reach students who are looking for part-time, full-time, internship, volunteer, research, and other experiential learning opportunities.

Signing Up for Handshake

All employers must create a Handshake account for their company and request approval to recruit at the University of Montana. ELCS vets every employer to verify the validity of the organization and ensure the safety of our students. Once your organization is approved, any approved staff member on the company's account can create job postings.

To learn more about the sign-up process, view this introductory Handshake Help Center article.

Recruiting at Events

Handshake is also where all employers will register for our various career and experiential learning fairs. We offer a variety of events throughout the academic year that help organizations network with students to recruit for their open positions.
