Due to the number of job postings submitted each day, the career center does not post any paper listings, nor do we accept job listings by phone. All jobs and internships must be posted on Handshake.

What do I do when my posting is rejected?
Employer registrations and job postings must meet Handshake and Pepperdine criteria and are rejected if criteria are not met or information provided by the employer is unclear. For Handshake policies for employers, visit the Employer Policies page.
How do I deactivate a job posting?
All jobs will expire according to your selected expiration date. If you want to expire your job, you can either select the small menu at the far right side of the job and choose "expire" or you can update the expiration date according to your preference. If your job expires or you want to post a similar description again, you can access your archived jobs, duplicate the position, and update it with any relevant information to post again for a new period of time.
How do I activate an expired posting?
Handshake allows you to re-post your archived (or expired) positions, so you avoid the inconvenience of re-creating the posting from scratch. To do this, log into Handshake with your login information. On the left tool bar, select "Jobs." In the upper right corner, select the "Postings" tab. Under "Status" select "Expired Postings" OR check the box in the left tool bar that says, "Include Expired Postings" - once you select the preferred job, you can pick the "Duplicate Job" button to start updating a new copy of the position.
