  1. Go to ewu.joinhandshake.com and login with SSO or your @eagles.ewu.edu email address and password.
  2. Complete your profile to personalize your experience.
  3. Start searching for jobs, internships, events, career advising appointments, and resources!

  1. Go to ewu.joinhandshake.com
  2. Click Sign Up for An Account at the bottom of the page
  3. Click the Student/Alumni button.
  4. Fill in your personal information and create a password.  Tip: When asked to enter your email please use your @eagles.ewu.edu email address if you have access to it. It makes your alumni status easier to verify.

  6. Next, you should see a screen asking you to confirm your registration. To confirm your registration, click on the link that you received in your email. Tip: If you don't find your confirmation email, please check your spam folder. To prevent future e-mails from being sent into your spam folder add handshake@notifications.joinhandshake.com to your contacts. If you still have difficulty please contact Handshake support at support@joinhandshake.com.
  7. Once you've confirmed your email address, you are registered as an alum and may now log in to complete your Handshake profile!
