Handshake Training for Faculty & Staff
What is Handshake?
It's the No. 1 way college students find jobs! Handshake partners with schools and employers—bringing their best opportunities to campus and onto the platform. The top employers, including all the Fortune 500, recruit students through Handshake, giving our students access to jobs and internships not available anywhere else.
Students create their profile, similar to LinkedIn, and will be shown jobs that are a good fit for them. They can filter and search through job roles based on their interests, and discover new career possibilities. Best of all, recruiters will message them directly with event invites and job opportunities.
Additionally features include:
- On-campus employment opportunities for hiring managers to post for students to review and apply.
- Virtual career fairs during these unprecedented times - our first one is October 7.
- Alumni engagement and networking opportunities.
If you are interested in understanding how students are navigating their campus to career journey using the platform, check out this video!
