Thank you for your interest in recruiting Cal Poly Pomona students!

Handshake is a self-post, self-referred online job bank and event management system provided as a service to students and employers. This is Cal Poly Pomona's only method of posting job and internship opportunities.

Please note, the campus does not permit posting of job announcements outside of Handshake. The Career Center has implemented these guidelines to create a professional environment where students, alumni and employers can interact.

Getting Started with Handshake

A company profile or description (what the business is, i.e., Leading manufacturer of gas/liquid analyzers and sensors”) will be required to establish a Handshake account. In addition, the full first and last name, as well as the email address of the company representative who will be posting the positions is required. (This information may be concealed from students.) When searching for schools please type in Pomona for quick search.

Employer Guidelines

  • A valid job title is required
  • Specific job duties to be performed must be included within the job description
  • A separate job posting is required for each posting
  • Handshake may not be used to promote opportunities which require a student to pay a fee to attend training, coursework or receive placement services
  • Handshake may not be used to advertise job banks
  • All job and internship listings are posted at the discretion of the Career Center
  • The Career Center reserves the right to decline and/or remove postings that conflict with the Student Code of Conduct, or, do not appear to support the best interests of our students and/or the University.

The following information must be included in all internship postings: company profile, work environment, tasks to be performed, benefits to intern (what will be learned or gained by this experience), educational/experience required, and hours/days needed.

Internship positions must be comprised of duties that will permit students to apply their undergraduate studies and supplement their curriculum.

Unpaid international internships and/or those charging an application fee to students will not be approved.

Please note: Whether offering a paid or unpaid internship, it will be the company’s responsibility to cover the intern under your workers compensation policy. Additionally, when it comes to offering academic or credited internships, depending upon the major(s) you seek to hire, there may be specific learning objectives or minimum hours required to obtain faculty approval for academic credit. A site visit, as well as participation in a performance evaluation process and/or verification of attendance, etc. may be required. Employers wishing to develop an internship opportunity are encouraged to contact the Career Center (909) 869-2342 or

All co-op positions must be approved by Cal Poly Pomona’s Cooperative Education Department within the Center for Community Engagement. A co-op student is one who is gaining paid work experience related to his major or career goal. The co-op earns academic credit for the work experience under the guidance of a Cal Poly Pomona faculty member.

To learn more about Cal Poly Pomona’s Cooperative Education Program guidelines and requirements please contact the Center for Community Engagement at 909-869-4269.

Volunteer opportunities may be posted by non-profit organizations only. Those organizations wishing to promote ongoing volunteer opportunities may also contact the Bronco Volunteer office at 909-869-2139.

Complaints and Compliance

The Career Center reserves the right to investigate complaints by students about employers or jobs accessed through Handshake. If it is determined that a complaint is justified, Handshake access may be revoked. In such cases, the Career Center will notify the employer via email of the action.
