Alumni Access to Handshake

All UW-Stout Alumni have access to Handshake, an online recruiting platform specifically for employers to recruit UW-Stout top talent. Some alumni may already have an account they have access to, some may have an account already, but just need to update their email address, and others may need an account created for them. Please read below to determine which scenario applies to you, and what your next course of action should be.

Alumni can use Handshake for: 

  • Job searching 
  • Scheduling an appointment with Career Services Staff
  • Browsing upcoming events and Career Fairs
  • Accessing exclusive resources like GoinGlobal, Reference USA, InterviewStream, and CareerSpots

Alumni who have graduated in the past year can still access Handshake with their UW-Stout credentials. 

Log in to Handshake

Please Note: Accounts that have not been logged in to for more than 1 year will be archived. Please call, 715-232-2178 for reactivation.

Alumni Who Have Graduated Before 2020

Alumni who graduated before 2020 likely do not have a Handshake Account already created for them, unless they've worked with our office before. Career Services is happy to create new accounts for alumni who would like access to Handshake for job searching, networking, scheduling an appointment, or other Career Services resources.

Request Access to Handshake 

Please note: requests are tended to within four business days, during normal business hours.  If you submit a request on a weekend, it will be tended to on the following Monday. Once Career Services receives your request and creates your Handshake account, you will receive an email (to the email address you provided) that asks to confirm your email address. In order for the change to process properly, you must confirm your email address in a timely manner. If you do not confirm your email address in a timely manner, you will need to submit another request.
