At the Office of Career Services (OCS) we see our faculty as vital partners in preparing our students for their transition into today's complex and competitive job market. Below are some suggestions of creative ways you can partner with us.

Sign Up for ‘Handshake

Handshake is the university’s web-based Career Management System used to connect students with employment opportunities, on-campus interviews, events like career fairs, career development workshops and more.

Sign up for a "Mentor" account.

Faculty of Howard University can engage Handshake in the following ways:

Internships, Fellowships and Job Postings

Search, view and share employer job postings and other experiential learning opportunities specific to your discipline with your students. Faculty may review and recommend jobs and set Search Agents to schedule automated job searches with email alerts for their classes.

Employer Directory and Contacts

Browse employer profiles and designate Favorites from our listing of 16,000+ registered employers and graduate schools.


The Events section enables faculty to view information regarding upcoming career fairs, information sessions, and workshops held across campus.
