Post a job or internship opportunity
  • Log in to Handshake
  • Enter your username and password.
  • Click on the “Jobs” tab, then click “Create Job”

All jobs and internships are marked as “pending” until reviewed and approved by the Center for Career Development.  The approval process typically occurs within 24 hours. If we have any questions, you will receive a phone call or email from us.

We strongly encourage employers to post their jobs or internships through Handshake. If you are unable, you may send these openings to careerdevelopment@duq.edu following this format: include complete contact information (Employer name, Contact person, Email address, and Mailing address) and a detailed job description.  The Center for Career Development will post these opportunities as quickly as possible, but you should expect the process to take 5 business days.

Employers seeking to recruit Duquesne University students and graduates are expected to comply with the guidelines established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, in addition to the Recruiting Policies specific to Duquesne University. If you are a third party recruiter, please refer to our Third Party Recruiter Policy.
