Student Registration Policies

By registering and uploading your resume to Handshake, you are granting permission for prospective employers to view your resume (within your privacy settings) and consent to the release of your resume and certain employment-related data.

As a user of Handshake, you agree to:

  • Maintain Accurate Data
  • Protect Username and Password
  • Use Handshake Within Standards of Technology and Telecommunications Policies at Trinity


During your job and/or internship search, both on and off Handshake, remember that you should never disclose social security numbers, credit card numbers, or bank account information to unknown employers.  Also, never spend money to obtain a position unless you are certain it is for a legitimate reason. If you need guidance, you can always contact the Office of Career Services for advice.

If an employer ever asks you for any of this information, or if you suspect an employer of running a scam, contact the Office of Career Services immediately and provide the employer’s name and job title of the posting in Handshake.
