Weber State University uses Wildcat Handshake to provide employer services and connect employers to students. Handshake is a widely used platform that allows you to recruit at many Universities across the country (including all Utah schools) using a single account.
A quick-start guide and a variety of short (2-min) training videos for employers are available on the Handshake Employer Help Center. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Career Services at 801-626-6393.

Become a Career Services Partner
The Career Services Corporate Partnership Program is designed to enhance your visibility at Weber State University and to maximize recruiting efforts.
Career Services offers six interview rooms available by appointment for employer-led interviews. Interviews can be requested online through Handshake. When requesting interviews, you may select to request only the room and coordinate the interview schedule on your own, or choose from one of Handshakes built-in options to allow students to sign up for interview times within Handshake. Our rooms can suit any recruiter’s needs and include the following features:
- A waiting area for interviewees
- Free Wi-Fi
- Outlet plugs in every room
- Access to our break room, which houses free drinks, a microwave, a toaster, a refrigerator, and more
- Plenty of space to conduct interviews
Career Services does not have a place for the posting of employer flyers in our office. There are several bulletin boards in the Student Services and Shepherd Union buildings designated as open use where such materials could be posted.
Most bulletin boards in the academic college buildings require department permission prior to posting anything.
Booths on Campus
Another option for employers wishing to recruit students is a table in the Shepherd Union Building. To get the most out of your visit, book your booth during the regular school year when the most students are on campus and bring a prominent poster or banner. For pricing or to request a vendor table contact WSU Shepherd Union Scheduling. Note: Career Services is unable to sponsor vendor tables.
