Using Handshake

Evolving our platform to help you make career moves on the go

Our newly improved Handshake experience brings together everything you need to find, land, and succeed in your next role.

Handshake now has posts, videos, and articles to help launch your career.

Between social media and endless sketchy search results, there’s a lot of questionable, outdated job search advice out there. It’s hard to know what to trust! That’s why Handshake is entering its content era: to help break through the noise online with legit, actually helpful career advice from students, new grads, companies, and career centers, curated just for you. And bonus, it’s all in the same place where you’re already finding jobs, internships, and events.

We know you’re pulled in a million different directions—our goal is for the job search to be one less stressful thing on your plate. With inside intel, endless career inspo, and more from a network of 15M+ students, 1,500+ schools, and 900K+ companies, our built-in community has everything you need, at every step of your career.

Make your screen time matter

On top of Handshake being the #1 place to get hired, we’re now giving you even more to support your search. Top companies are sharing exclusive updates like “day in the life” videos, tips to succeed in their interview process, and first-hand POVs from their employees to set you up for success. Your school can now use Handshake to share resources like free resume templates, exclusive on-campus opportunities, and important reminders. And you’ll have more opportunities to learn from your network—fellow students at your school, alumni who’ve gotten hired at the companies you’re eyeing, and others on the same path.

Make career moves with actually useful info curated by real people who are invested in your success.

Whether you’re a freshman exploring different fields, a junior or senior looking for internships and jobs, or a new grad already getting to work, our brand new features are here to help you get ahead and get hired.
