Thank you for your interest in recruiting at Tennessee Tech! We use a career database, Handshake, for all recruiting. Handshake is an online career database used by 700 different colleges and universities nationwide and is completely free for employers. Your first step to connecting with Tech students is to get set up in Handshake.

About Tennessee Tech Center for Career Development

We help employers connect with current students, recent graduates, and alumni through our on-line job posting and interview management system Handshake, which gives you the ability to

  • Post full-time professional positions, co-op jobs, and internships
  • Request On-Campus Interview dates
  • Search and review student and alumni resumes



 First, you'll want to create an account with Handshake. Once you've created your account, you'll need to create an employer profile for your company. Finally, when your user account and employer profile are created, you should request a connection with Tennessee Tech University and any other schools you're interested in recruiting with. For detailed instructions on each part of this process, please check out this helpful article.

After completing the steps above, our Center for Career Development staff will review your connection request with Tennessee Tech University. If approved, you can post jobs, request employer hosted events, reserve on campus interview, and register for career fairs.
