The best way to get the word out about your job is through our online job board, Handshake, which is open to all JHU students and alumni. This platform is part of a national system of colleges/universities, so you can post the job/event once and target any university in the system, rather than posting school by school.
Handshake is completely free to use.
You may sign up for a free employer account. When your user account and employer profile are created, you should request a connection with Johns Hopkins University.
