What’s new on Handshake: July 2022

Determine the ROI of your events and configure your team’s user roles with these new features on Handshake

Here at Handshake, we're always rolling out product enhancements to make early talent recruitment even easier for you and your team. Check out what’s new this month!

Determine the ROI of your events

It’s no secret that career fairs and recruiting events require time, money, and resources, especially as travel returns with in-person events. Understanding your past event performance can determine how to effectively plan your events strategy this fall—and find out if you’re using your resources efficiently.

With Event Manager analytics, you can determine the ROI of your events over time. Through detailed, automated monthly reports, you can evaluate the performance of your organization’s events and career fairs to inform your events strategy this fall and beyond.

Available for employers on Handshake Premium with Event Manager.

Configure your team’s user roles on Handshake (coming soon)

With fall recruiting season around the corner, you need to equip your team with tools to hit the ground running. But with so many individuals involved in the recruiting process—from sourcers and recruiters to hiring managers and alumni advocates—meeting each role’s specific needs can be challenging.

To align with your organizational requirements, customers with Handshake Premium will have access to 5 configurable Premium user roles later this month. Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach to user roles, you'll be able to adjust permissions for each role—and even add new users with permissions automatically applied.

Available later this month for all employers on Handshake Premium.

Evaluate the health of your recruiting program

Every year, Handshake’s Early Talent Awards (ETAs) recognizes a short list of employers for best-in-class talent engagement and celebrates the teams that launch careers for Gen Z.

After announcing our annual ETA winners, we’re excited to share best practices for evaluating the health of your recruiting program—and put you in the running to win an ETA next year.

Check out our Early Talent Awards rubric and feel free to share with your team!

Get in touch with our team to learn more about how these releases and Handshake Premium can help you expand access to jobs and unlock a whole new generation of talent. Already a Handshake Premium partner? Email your Account Management Team to learn how to start using these features.
