CSUDH-Handshake-StudentCSUDH Handshake is a job and internship site for CSUDH Students. Handshake offers access to full-time career positions, part-time jobs, internships, and on-campus work study and student assistant positions.* Handshake also provides career event & workshop information, on-campus interview schedule, and an employer directory.

*Disclaimer:  The University and the Career Center hold no liability from fraudulent activity as a result of a Handshake posting.  While each job and internship must meet specific criteria prior to approval for posting, regrettably, fraudulent job postings may appear in our listings from time to time.  The attached word DOC offers tips on how to avoid them.  Any "employer" who hires you without an in-person interview, requires you to provide personal information online (bank account number, social security number, etc.) or advances you money prior to work being performed is suspect.  Report all such encounters immediately to the Career Center.  To file a complaint about an online job scam, go to the online Internet Crime Complaint Center of the FBI.

Disclaimer: The CSUDH Career Center website contains links to other websites outside the campus domain. We are not responsible for the content, accuracy, or opinions expressed on such websites. Inclusion of any linked third-party website does not imply approval or endorsement by the us.  See our tip sheet [DOC] on how to avoid a fraudulent job posting.
