There are a number of ways in which the Stamps School of Art & Design encourages employers to connect with Stamps students.

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
  • How, and what, stu­dents should sub­mit for your consideration
  • Dead­line for submissions/​application
  • Com­pen­sa­tion involved

For spe­cific infor­ma­tion on how to arrange credit for an intern­ship, please see Stamps School of Art & Design Intern­ship Poli­cies.

Port­fo­lio Expo
