Create a Handshake Account as an Alum
Step 1: Create an account on Handshake register first.
Step 2: Select Student/Alumni and complete the fill-in information. We recommend you use your professional or personal email account since your albany.edu email account will be deactivated after six months post-graduation. Note: You can create an employer account as well using the same email address to sync both your alumni and employer under Handshake.
Step 3: Confirm your Handshake account through the email account you provided and follow the friendly pop-up modal to complete your profile. Note: your education, work experience, extracurriculars, projects, and skills can be completed later. By uploading your resume most of this information can be auto-filled by Handshake. Go User Settings under your first name (top right) click on the Documents tab then click on New Document to upload your documents (Resume, Cover Letter, Transcript, Work Sample, and Other).
Step 4: In the Documents tab select Build Profile from Resume to have the data from your resume parsed. View Parsed Data to select which data you want added to your profile.

Appointments for Alumni (Post Graduation 5 years or less).
Appointments are available with a career advisor for alumni who have graduated within the last 5 years.  Appointments are made through Handshake once your account has been approved. Virtual appointments are available.
