Faculty and Staff

Together Lets Help Our Sharks

Students benefit from the professional collaborations between Career Development and campus partners in academic and non-academic departments. We as professionals also benefit as we work together to build towards a students’ career success. Help us connect with your students from their first-year on campus, to the time they are about to graduate, and beyond.

Career Development has various resources for you as faculty and staff to utilize. We encourage you to take advantage of them as you work with students in your departments. We also have an employer relations team that can work with recruiters that contact you directly. We understand your time and resources may be limited and handling recruiter inquiries is not your primary role on campus. However, it is our role in Career Development and we have the infrastructure to assist them for you.

Refer an Employer: Periodically employers will contact you directly and while you may not have the resources and time to adequately respond to their needs, rest assured we do. Referring employers to us will help increase their visibility on campus and give students greater access to employment opportunities. We are also knowledgeable of the legal, regulatory, and ethical challenges to avoid.

If you have an employer partner wishing to recruit NSU Sharks, please refer them to our Employer Relations Team at or (954) 262-7201. We are happy to connect them to a variety of recruiting programs as well as work with them through our Recruiter Concierge Services.

Career Development User Agreement

As a user of this site:

  1. I agree to provide accurate and truthful information about my qualifications and educational background in my online profile, my resume, and any supplemental job-search documents I upload to the Handshake system.

  2. I will keep my profile information up to date, including my current contact information, email address, and academic major and class year.  If a current Nova Southeastern University student, I will use my email address in my profile.

  3. I authorize Career Development to release my resume to employers I have selected via Handshake and On-Campus Recruiting (OCR).

  4. If participating in On-Campus Recruiting (OCR), I agree to abide by all OCR policies and procedures.

  5. I am responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of my login information and password.  I am responsible for all uses of my registration, whether or not authorized by me. If others use my password to access job listings or to post inappropriate material on the site, I risk losing my access to the site. In circumstances where Career Development suspects that account access information has been shared and unauthorized access has been granted to the system, I understand the policy is to immediately suspend all user privileges, investigate the situation, and possibly refer the case to the Office of Student Conduct.

  6. Career Development expects NSU students and alumni using Handshake (including on-campus recruiting, job postings, resume books, and career fair contacts) to honor their commitment and think carefully when accepting a job or internship offer. It is unprofessional and damaging to both a student's personal reputation and the reputation of NSU as an institution when an individual reneges on an accepted job offer. Please carefully consider all options before accepting a position, and, if in doubt about whether to accept it, consult with a Career Development advisor. Individuals who renege on a job or internship offer may face suspension of their Handshake privileges (including the on-campus recruiting program).

  7. I agree to the Disclaimer / Terms and Conditions.
