University at Albany


UA CareerPath has moved over to Handshake.

We are still in the process of syncing student data to Handshake to allow for a single sign-on access similiar to MyUAlbany.

However, UAlbany students can create Handshake account. Since you are new to Handshake you will need to register first.
If you already have a Handshake account Student Login

Instructions for creating a Handshake account:

Step 1: Select Student/Alumni. We recommend using your email address so that when the sync is complete your data will upload to your account.

Step 2: Confirm your Handshake account through the email account you provided and follow the friendly pop-up modal to complete your profile. Note: your education, work experience, extracurriculars, projects, and skills can be completed later. By uploading your resume most of this information will be auto-filled by Handshake. Click on Applications under Explore from the left menu column to upload your documents. 

Step 3: Once you are logged in select your Profile in the left menu then select the Documents tab. Select Build Profile from Resume in order to have the data from your resume parsed. View Parsed Data to select which data you want added to your profile.
