Start with your CAP Liaison

One of the best ways to connect with employers is to work with the Career & Academic Planning liaison to your department. Liaisons are in touch with employers who recruit at JMU and aware of trends in hiring for a variety of fields.

Find Employers Involved at JMU

Faculty can access Handshake to see what jobs and internships are available to students, view employer information, and see which employers are attending Career Fairs and other career related events. For the username and password to a generic account that can be used to access Handshake, contact us at

You may also want to view our pages about On-Campus Interviews and the importance of Practice Interviewing to gain a better understanding of what On-Campus Recruiting is all about. We encourage you to promote Handshake to your students to make them aware of this resource.

Laws and Ethics of Student Hiring

As faculty invested in the success of our students, it is important for us to understand the legal and ethical issues surrounding student employment. The National Association of College Educators (NACE) has created a set of ethical standards for guiding the job-search process: A Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring.
