Why career centers love Handshake

“One of our students already landed a co-op with SpaceX at the beginning of the semester, which is the first student that we had 'registered' for a co-op / intern at the company. Prior to Handshake, we truly had zero contact with them. Handshake opened the door!”
Kyle Liechty
Co-op & Intern Coordinator
Michigan State University
“I wanted to make sure that our students were at the greatest advantage, and that we had cutting edge technology. Handshake is, in a sense, the platform of the future. And I think Handshake had the technical flexibility and knew how to handle challenges that would really support the mission of this career center.”
Tom Devlin
Executive Director
University of California, Berkeley
“Everyone at Handshake has been really responsive. It’s really great to go back and forth when you know you’re going to get an answer to your questions–and you can get critical feedback. It’s been a real culture shift for us. If you have a problem, Handshake actually wants to help you solve the problem.”
Kevin Monahan
Associate Dean for Career & Professional Development
Carnegie Mellon University
“Handshake as a platform helps the Weingart Center provide our students with a better, faster and fuller career development and job search experience for our students. It connects our students to their career futures in real time and we like that!”
Deborah Pratt
Assistant Dean, Career Development
Whittier College
