Alumni Access to Handshake

Alumni can access all the features of Handshake as a job seeker and/or an employer, but you will need to set up an account using an email address rather than using the JMU login.

First Time Users (Job Seeker)

Register for an account using any email address that you check regularly. You do not need to use your Dukes email to set up your account.

Returning Users (Job Seeker)

  1. On the Handshake login page, select “sign in with your email address” (located beneath the blue button that says, "James Madison University Sign On").
  2. In the username field, enter the email address you used to set up your account, and select "Next".
  3. Select “Or login using your Handshake credentials" (located beneath the blue button that says, "James Madison University Sign On").

Employer Login

You can post jobs and internships as an employer in Handshake by setting up an employer account. It's free and easy to use. Just visit the Handshake Login page or set up a new account to get started.
