Hire a Vandal Student/Alumni Login

ATTENTION STUDENTS AND ALUMNI!

We transitioned to a new platform for our Hire a Vandal (HAV) system over the summer. The new technology is called Handshake and it is built to function like familiar social media sites, such as LinkedIn and Facebook.  Students and Alumni can easily search and apply for jobs, communicate with employers and learn about upcoming career events in the new Hire a Vandal system.

Instructions to access Hire a Vandal are found below:

Current Students

1) Click here to go to the student login page

2) Enter your University of Idaho username and password credentials (the same that you use for VandalWeb, email, etc.) and click the "Sign-in" button.

3) On your first log-in, you will be prompted to complete your profile and choose some settings.  It is recommended that you take a few minutes to do this because Handshake's power lies in its ability to match you to jobs, internships, and employers that fit your interests. You can go back and change the settings at any time.

If you need assistance gaining access or have any questions about using the system, please contact the Career Center at (208) 885-6121 or careercenter@uidaho.edu.

Alumni & Former Students (setting up a new account)

1) If you are an alumna/alumnus or a former student, you will need to create an account. Go to the account creation page found here.

2) Click on the "Student/Alumni" button.

3) Fill out the form and click "Submit."

4) Go to your inbox and look for an email from handshake.com or joinhandshake.com.  The email will contain a link.  You need to click the link to confirm and verify your email address. By doing so, it will bring you back to the Hire A Vandal login page.

5) Click on "University of Idaho Alumni & Former Students."

6) Sign in by using the credentials you created in step 3 above.

7) The Career Center will receive a notification that you have requested to join us.  A staff member will approve this within 1-2 business days of your request. This allows us to confirm that you are alum, as HAV is accessible only for students and alumni of UI.

8) Following approval and upon your first log-in, you will be prompted to complete your profile and choose some settings.  It is recommended that you take a few minutes to do this because Handshake's power really lies in its ability to match you to jobs, internships, and employers that fit your interests. You can go back and change the settings at any time.

Alumni & Former Students (with existing Handshake accounts)

1) If you have logged onto HAV since August 15, 2015, you can easily access it again by clicking here to go to the Handshake Login Page.

2) Enter your Handshake credentials and click "Log in."

If you need assistance gaining access or have any questions about using the system, please contact the Career Center at (208) 885-6121 or careercenter@uidaho.edu.
