Search for Jobs and Internships


It all starts with a Handshake.

Handshake is the ACDC's online career management platform. Employers partner with us to post open positions through Handshake. Students and alumni use it to search positions, post resumes, sign up for on-campus interviews, find out about job fairs and events and network with employers.

  • New WKU Students: Do not create a Handshake account. WKU will automatically create your Handshake account 15 days after you register for classes. After your account has been created, you will then be able to log in to Handshake using your WKU Net ID and Password. If you have any questions about your Handshake account, please send an email to CareerHelp@wku.edu .
  • Current WKU Students: Log in to Handshake using your WKU Net ID and Password. You do not need to create a new Handshake account. If you have any questions about your Handshake account, please send an email to CareerHelp@wku.edu.
  • Alumni: If you graduated May 2018 or after, you already have a Handshake account.Just log into Handshake using your Net ID and Password. Graduated before May 2018, go to Handshake and click on "No account? Sign up here." and follow the instructions.  You can use any email address that you want. Accounts are typically approved within 48 business hours. If you have any questions about your Handshake account, please send an email to CareerHelp@wku.edu.

Avoid Job Scams

Fake job postings are often sent via email and look like they come from a legitimate source. Jobs that sound too good to be true should raise a red flag. 

Want to ask if a job is real? Contact the ACDC at 270-745-3095 or CareerHelp@wku.edu
