You should follow the same process to set up an account as outside employers, but note the following best practices/tips:

  • Your requested account type is Employer and your office is the Company.
  • Use your email address.
  • Be sure to check your SPAM/Junk Mail folders for confirmation emails
  • When asked to connect with your company, DO NOT connect with the main Rutgers University-Camden account.
  • Each department will need to create their own employer/company account.
    • If no one has created an account for your department yet, you must create a new company. Name your company “Rutgers-Camden [Department Name].”
    • The first person to create the account is the owner. They will be responsible for approving other staff members that want to use Handshake. Click for instructions on how to transfer ownership.

  • The process for posting work-study jobs and non-work study jobs is the same.
  • Select “On Campus Employment” as the Job Type.
  • If you are posting a work-study only job, please add (WORK STUDY ONLY) to your job title, i.e. Office Assistant (WORK STUDY ONLY).
    • Answer Yes to “Is this a work study job?”
  • If you can hire both work-study and non-work study students
    • Answer No to “Is this a work study job?”
