Alumni Access to Handshake

All UWRF Alumni have access to Handshake, an online recruiting platform specifically for employers to recruit UWRF's top talent. Some alumni may already have an account they have access to, some may have an account already, but just need to update their email address, and others may need an account created for them. Please read below to determine which scenario applies to you, and what your next course of action should be.

Alumni can use Handshake for: 

  • Job searching 
  • Scheduling an appointment with Career Services Staff
  • Accessing exclusive resources like Big Interview, Goin Global, and Reference USA 

Handshake Terms and Conditions for Alumni

Alumni who have graduated in the past year can still access Handshake with their UWRF credentials. 

Log in to Handshake

Please Note: after one-year post-graduation, alumni will no longer have access to their UWRF email. If alumni plan to use Handshake beyond graduation, they should update their email address with a non-education email address (such as Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc.). Inactive accounts (accounts that have not been logged in to for more than 1 year) will be archived.

Alumni who have graduated more than one year ago, but not before 2017, may already have a Handshake account created for them with their previous @my.uwrf.edu email address. However, because alumni do not have access to their UWRF email address beyond one year post-graduation, they need to update their email address with a non-education email address (such as Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc.). Career Services can help with this!

Request Access to Handshake 

Please note: requests are tended to within four business days, during normal business hours. If you submit a request on a weekend, it will be tended to on the following Monday. Once Career Services receives your request and updates your Handshake account, you will receive an email (to the email address you provided) that asks to confirm your email address. In order for the change to process properly, you must confirm your email address in a timely manner. If you do not confirm your email address in a timely manner, you will need to submit another request.

Alumni who graduated before 2017 likely do not have a Handshake Account already created for them, unless they've worked with our office before. Career Services is happy to create new accounts for alumni who would like access to Handshake for job searching, networking, scheduling an appointment, or other Career Services resources.
