Marshall University Welcomes Handshake

Over the summer of 2020, we are transitioning from JobTrax to Handshake. This change allows us to provide our community of users with access to a new, state of the art system. This website provides you with important information, deadlines, and transition updates. We’re also building out self-service training and tips under the name Handshake Hints … so check back often for all the latest updates!
