On-Campus Employers

To recruit students for on-campus employment opportunities, faculty and staff members must have a department and contact profile on the Handshake, a new recruiting platform.   The MU Career Center has created accounts for all departments using the following naming convention: MU Department/Division Name.  We recommend this format so that students can easily search and find positions on the Mizzou campus.

Getting Started

  1. Start at https://missouri.joinhandshake.com/register and click the Employer button.
  2. Follow the online steps to create your MU Department staff account
    • Be sure to use your “missouri.edu” or “health.missouri.edu” email account
    • Be sure to only select ” University of Missouri-Columbia” as your target school
  3. When asked to connect to an employer, search for your “MU [department/division name]”. You may also review this full List of MU Departments in Handshake. Don’t see your department listed? Contact Amanda Nell at 573.882.0878 or nella@missouri.edu for assistance.
  4. For instructions on how to register and connect with an MU department, please reference our  Campus Employer Handshake Guide.

Approval Process

Please be aware that a primary contact in your department or division must first approve you as a contact before you can access features of the site. If there is any delay, please contact the MU Career Center
