As you settle into the fall semester and start to look towards future employment and/or internship opportunities, we encourage you to activate your Handshake account. NTC’s Career Services Department receives several calls and emails on a daily basis from employers regarding their employment and/or internship opportunities, and these employers are always encouraged to post their opportunities on Handshake. There are several local – and national – opportunities posted on Handshake for you to explore and apply for!

To activate your Handshake account, visit Once your account is activated, you will want to set up your profile, upload your resume, turn your profile on so employers can view it, and start connecting with employers regarding their opportunities. Check out this flyer for getting started with Handshake.

And to make the activation/set up process fun, we encourage you to complete the 10-Day Handshake Profile Challenge! For more information about this challenge, visit

If you have questions regarding Handshake or would like assistance activating and setting up your account, please contact NTC’s Career Services Department at
