We spoke to real college students about how Handshake helped them open doors in their careers. Read and follow along in this five-part series.

Meet Denisha, a recent University of Georgia graduate. She secured a job through Handshake and made many great connections. By having that role on her resume, she was able to open up her options for her future.

I made my first connection by going to the career center event. It was a networking event created by my university’s career center and I first heard about it through Handshake. Once I got that first job, there were just so many other opportunities I got just because I had that one job on my resume.
