The Florida State University (FSU) Career Center Career Center strives for open access and connections between students and employers. The FSU Career Center's Handshake job posting database is provided free of charge to employers and to student/alumni job seekers.
All hiring and compensation for work performed by employees is handled directly between the student/alumni job seeker and the employer. The FSU Career Center makes no representations or guarantees about quality of student/alumni applicants as we do not perform background checks on individuals applying for jobs. Employers and students/alumni are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials and overall fit between the employer and the applicant.
All job opportunities are posted at the discretion of the FSU Career Center. The FSU Career Center abides by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice . The FSU Career Center may deny and/or remove access rights for organizations that do not support the policies and procedures of NACE, Florida State University or that violate state and/or federal law.
