Career Services at Swarthmore College offers employer access to highly motivated students and alumni.

Post Jobs and Internships 

Post in Handshake: Log in with your account information or register with our system to post full time positions, internships, and/or fellowships for Swarthmore students and alumni.

Note: If you already have an account as a student/alum, you will still need to create a separate employer account. However, you can use the same credentials to log in as an employer who wants to post an opportunity. See below for instructions. 

  1. Log out student/alumni account in order to create an account of a different type (or user an incognito browser). 
  2. Visit and click Sign Up, then Employer. 
  3. Enter email to create an employer account. 
  4. Look for a message that reads: "Looks like there's a student/alumni account associated with this email! Please enter the password for that account to continue".  Doing this will link the two together so now users can toggle between student/alumni and employer.

Additional Options to Post Internships

The mission of UCAN is to develop and maintain quality internships nationwide from a variety of top employers. When you post an internship to UCAN, you therefore have access to a large pool of tremendously talented students.
