Expert tips for rocking it during spring recruitment

Get ready to get hired this season—even if you put off the search until spring.

There's nothing quite like winter break to dial up the pressure on your job search. Whether your post-break motivation was sparked by endless questions from family about post-graduation plans, cold-weather-induced fantasies about how you'll spend the coming summer, or something else entirely, you can harness it to prepare for landing your next role. We brought together some of Handshake's in-house experts to share quick, easy things you can do to get ready to get hired this spring—even if you've been putting it off.

During the panel, we shared all about how to impress recruiters through your Handshake profile, get noticed by the companies you want to work for, and more.

  • Christine Cruzvergara, Handshake's Chief Education Strategy Officer, shared how to get into the right mindset for career planning, outlined her four-step strategy for nailing the job search, and revealed the common mistake she's seen thousands of students make during that process
  • Sura Hussain, Senior Manager of Product Marketing, walked through Handshake essentials and showed how to personalize your experience on the platform to get the best job and internship recommendations
  • Brit Gergen, Director of Product Marketing, showed how to easily connect with career services at your school, attend events, and stand out to employers through follow-up messages
