Posting a Job/Position
The Stamps School is a part of the University Career Center’s “Handshake” posting system. To post a full time, part time or internship opportunity, please use your Handshake account. If you are a new user, create an account on Handshake, then find University of Michigan among the schools and 'Request Approval'. Once we've confirmed the request, you may post positions for our students. To view a tutorial from Handshake on the step by step process of creating your user account, please click here.
The Stamps school continuously strives to further a climate of inclusivity and diversity. With this goal in mind, we encourage you to include in your posting your organization's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) statement and/or how you value DEI in your organization's hiring.
For all other opportunities (Calls for Work, Freelance, etc.) please send the posting or an email with the following information to John Luther
- Brief description of the position/project
