Our online recruiting system, Handshake, connects employers with MSU students. As an employer, you can post opportunities, promote events and register for career fairs. The system is free to use for employers and students, and requires only a one-time registration.
Make sure you're familiar with our majors before you post!
PROACTIVELY FIND CANDIDATES
In addition to job postings your can search our student database and send targeted messages to students.
Handshake's Candidate Hub helps recruiters discover which students would be good candidates for their open positions and reach out with thoughtful messaging.
Promote virtual events - Request new virtual event in Handshake and include the links to video conferencing in the URL field.

ATTEND A VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR
This fall all of our career fairs will be virtual! In addition, we are hosting multiple fairs that allow you to target specific majors. We encourage you to attend as many sessions as you want!

HOW VIRTUAL FAIRS WORK
Once your registration is approved you’ll receive a notification from Handshake prompting you to start building schedules and sessions for the fair. Handshake virtual career fair tool allows you to schedule 1:1 sessions and host multiple group sessions with students using both chat and video. Google Chrome is the recommended browser.

INTERNSHIP FOR CREDIT
The College of Engineering offers a one credit course for students during their intern or co-op experience called EGR X (formerly EGR 393). The co-op semesters enable students to thoughtfully work out a “working lifestyle” that can include continued learning, sensitivity to professionalism and professional ethics, and a habit of thoughtfully assessing current events. You can direct students HERE for more information.

Most international students are eligible to participate in registered cooperative education and internship opportunities with the approval of the College of Engineering and the Office of International Student Services. Experiences may be found in the United States or the student's home country. Employers who are interested in exploring hiring a diverse pool of candidates and who will consider co-op or intern experiences for international students should contact The Center (email@example.com) to learn more. There is no need for visa sponsorship to employ an international student as a co-op or intern.
