Jobs for Jags

UHV uses a website called Handshake to help students find jobs. We call it "Jobs for Jags" and we've already created accounts for all students at UHV. Your information from UHV is automatically added to Handshake, so that when your GPA or class level changes, the website updates and shows you jobs that would be a good match for you.

Handshake Account

When you visit Handshake, make sure you don't create a new Handshake account. If you do, we won't be able to connect it to our system. To log in, use your student email address that has your 7-digit UHV ID in it, (ex: 1234567@uhv.edu). If Handshake says you don't have an account, email the Career Development Center or call us on (361) 570-4385.

Getting Started with Handshake

Once logged in to Handshake, select the avatar type icon in the top right of the page to update your profile, upload your resume or follow an employer or a job your interested in. For more helpful information, visit the Handshake Help Center.
