Current students can join Handshake for free and begin connecting with employers immediately. Alumni who do not have a Handshake account already will need to complete the Handshake Alumni Registration which includes an email verification process. Alumni can access registration here. As an alumni you can use your own, personal email address if your Springfield College email address is not active or is not your primary email address. Springfield College will automatically be pre-selected as the institution and then you’ll be asked to create a Handshake password. Once the email address has been verified, your account information will be submitted to the Career Center for approval. When the account has been approved, you can use all of the functions Handshake has to offer. If you have any questions, please contact the Career Center at (413) 748-3222.
