Full-Time & Internship Positions

Please note that the Career Center primarily promotes full-time and internship positions for undergraduate students and recent alumni applicants. For details, please read below and review Lewis & Clark’s Handshake Guidelines.

Post an Opportunity

All full-time jobs, internships, career-track jobs, and summer postings are posted through our office’s online job posting database, Handshake. It benefits employers to create an account in Handshake and post positions to ensure that you are recruiting the most qualified candidates and have complete control over changes to the recruiting timeline or removal of the posting.

New Handshake users can go to Handshake and create a profile using the tips below.

Existing Handshake users do not need to create a new account. Use your current log in information, click on “Schools” on the left hand menu and type in Lewis & Clark College in the search bar to “Request Approval”. Handshake offers step-by-step directions on how to post an active job to additional schools for assistance.

Should you need any assistance please contact Amanda Wheaton, Employer Relations Coordinator.

Part-Time Positions

Part-time positions (ideal for students looking for positions during the school year) are posted through Student Employment in our Human Resources Department as they also oversee student employment here on campus.

Should you experience any difficulties please contact Student Employment at
