Job & Internship Board

Ohio State is transitioning to Handshake!

Updates for Students

Handshake will replace our current job search system,
Symplicity (also known as Buckeye Careers Network). New Handshake accounts will be accessible to students beginning Tuesday, June 5. For more information about Handshake, please visit the student site. Feel free to contact thatcher.42@osu.edu with questions.

If you have an existing account in Buckeye Careers Network, here is what you need to do by Thursday, May 31st:

  • Remove and save any documents (resumes, cover letters, etc.) to your own device
  • Complete any job applications that you are considering

Your new Handshake account will be accessible beginning on June 5th. Look for an email invitation on how to access your new Handshake account later in May.


Updates for Employers

We are excited to share the news about our upcoming transition to Handshake, a modern platform for college recruiting. Handshake will replace our current system, Symplicity (also known as Buckeye Careers Network).

Through Handshake, you will have access to features like:

  • Managing all of your campus recruitment efforts
  • Updating your job postings, viewing applicants, and more using Handshake’s mobile experience

Handshake is currently available for employers. For your upcoming postings:

  • Post any jobs with expiration dates prior to June 1 in Symplicity (Buckeye Careers Network).
  • Post any jobs with expiration dates after June 1 in Handshake.

Keep in mind that students will not have access to Handshake until June 6. You may want to extend your Handshake summer job posting
deadlines to the end of June to ensure students get their accounts set up and view opportunities.

For more information about Handshake, visit their employer site.

We look forward to helping you transition to this exciting new platform! Please contact BCN@osu.edu with any questions you may have.
