Issues logging onto Handshake?

City Tech graduates have access to Handshake by using your City Tech email account. You should not create your own Handshake account, as the platform will not connect/sync to City Tech’s career services account. You will not be allowed to search, apply for positions, events, or request appointments by creating your own account. Please reach out to pdc@citytech.cuny.edu if you continue to have issues.
