Osprey CareerLink Transitions to Handshake

UNF's online career management system

The University of North Florida has transitioned from Osprey CareerLink to the Handshake platform.  We believe Handshake offers innovative features and support for both our employers and students.

The decision to move to Handshake is the result of an 18 month evaluation process completed by an advisory group of students, employers, staff members and campus partners. UNF will join a network of over 500 universities utilizing Handshake, including schools like Florida State University, University of South Florida, University of West Florida, and University of Central Florida, and many more.

For additional questions or more information, please contact the career center for your college.
