Career Services Database Launches New App

The SLU community including alumni can access Handshake, a database with over 12,000 organizations actively seeking candidates to fill open positions through mySLU or by downloading the database's new app. The database is offered by Career Services.

SLU Handshake has over 12,000 organizations actively searching for Billikens to fill their open positions and about 100 new opportunities are added daily.

The Handshake job database has also released a new user friendly mobile app to make job searching faster and easier. Like the version of Handshake found on mySLU, the app gives job recommendations based on the users’ interests, skills, major, location preferences and search history. The app is available as “Handshake Jobs & Careers” on the iPhone App Store for the free download.

As part of Career Services alumni resources, all graduates of Saint Louis University can access this database. Alumni should go to to register for an account.

During Handshake month SLU Career Services will be posting success stories of students and alumni who have utilized Handshake and the resources at Career Services in order to help them achieve their dream job or internship.
