Ohio State is transitioning to Handshake!

We are excited to share the news about our upcoming transition to Handshake, a modern platform for college recruiting.  Handshake will replace our current system, Symplicity (also known as Buckeye Careers Network, CareerEngine, FutureLink, and Hireabuckeye).  

Through Handshake, you will have access to features like:

  • Managing all of your campus recruitment efforts
  • Updating your job postings, viewing applicants, and more using Handshake’s mobile experience 

Handshake should be available in early May for employers. For your upcoming postings:

  • Post any jobs with expiration dates prior to June 1 in Symplicity. 
  • Post any jobs with expiration dates after June 1 in Handshake, after the system opens.

Keep in mind that students will not have access to Handshake until June 6.  You may want to extend your Handshake summer job posting deadlines to the end of June to ensure students get their accounts set up and view opportunities.

We look forward to helping you transition to this exciting new platform!  Please contact BCN@osu.edu with any questions you may have.
