Go For Gold With Handshake and You Can Win Prizes

Consider this weekly challenge an Olympic training camp for your career.

As Olympians around the world prepare to bring their A-game in Tokyo, they’re pushing their bodies and minds to the limit for a chance to win medals in their sport of choice. And while not every job requires thousands of hours in the gym each year, we can all benefit from training hard to do our best in our career path! That’s why Handshake is kicking off Go For Gold, a weekly training series to help set you up for success as you race toward your job or internship.
