Recruitment and Internships

Contact Us

Welcome to the College of Engineering at Oregon State University. We support our partnerships with employers by facilitating a gateway to our engineering talent, especially our students.

Handshake: Post A Career or Internship Possibility 

  • Handshake is the gateway to posting a career/internship possibility. The first step to recruiting at the OSU College of Engineering is to register on Handshake, OSU’s online recruiting website.
  • You can post jobs, collect resumes, schedule interviews and register for career events such as fairs and workshops. You can list part-time jobs for students while they are in school (usually September to June), summer positions (full- or part-time), internships and seasonal or full-time jobs. You can manage all applications through the system or direct students to an alternative application site.
  • Students across OSU use Handshake to find internship and employment opportunities, maximizing the number of students who view your postings. Handshake also allows you to set advance advanced filtering options among potential hires to find the best fit.
  • Participate in career fairs and professional networking events, post jobs, conduct interviews on-site, and ultimately hire the interns and employees you need among our students.
