Handshake is the student job search engine for the Los Rios Community Colleges (ARC, CRC, FLC, SCC).

If you are looking to hire students for your company, Handshake is the way to do it. It is a simple process but it can get a little confusing. This how-to will concentrate on how to get started and how to post jobs.

Set Up Your Account

  1. You will need a user account in order to login and use Handshake.
  2. Join your existing company profile on Handshake, or create a new one:
    • You will need to be connected to your company profile on Handshake prior to taking any actions with schools. Your company name* should be visible, based on the domain of your email address, if a Handshake account was already created. If it isn't, you should see the option to create a new company profile.
    • You can learn more about the new company creation process, by checking out How to Create a New Company Profile. If your company has multiple locations, confirm your specific site.
    • Example: - SF, – Davis
  3. Request to connect with schools:
    • You must request and receive approval from a school prior to posting jobs there.
    • You can choose schools during your sign-up process. To find our school, look up “Los Rios Community College”. You can always select more schools at any time afterward.
    • To learn how to choose to add more schools later, check out School Network Management.
  4. Profile Approval:
    • After you have set up your employer profile on Handshake, you will need to be approved by a Los Rios Career Center as a legitimate employer.
    • Once you are approved you will be able to start posting jobs.
    • If you need assistance, please contact your Los Rios Career Center.
