Welcome to Handshake!

The summer of 2018 was a busy one for the Career Services team, as we successfully transitioned from Racer Tracks to Handshake. This transition helps bring Murray State Career Services up to the 'cutting edge' regarding career center management systems. Handshake will host a multitude of internships and career opportunities for our Racers, along with information on events, interview schedules for companies interviewing on-campus, online appointment reservations, and more!

What is Handshake?
Handshake is the online career management platform for Murray State Career Services.
In addition to being the place where you can search and apply for internships, Co-op, part-time, and full-time jobs, you can also use Handshake to:
