We’re excited to announce that UofSC Aiken has moved its on-campus employment posting and hiring process from Purple Briefcase into Handshake. We think you will find Handshake to be a very user-friendly and intuitive system.

Please read these instructions on how to post your department's open jobs in Handshake:

  1. Sign up for an account on Handshake and select "I’m an Employer" (see image below for a visual).

  2. Create a company profile for your department. All on-campus departments are encouraged to use “UofSC Aiken: Department/School Name” when naming their employer account.
  3. Connect with our school. UofSC Aiken’s Name in Handshake: University of South Carolina-Aiken
  4. Once you have established a company profile, you will be able to create your job postings.
