Why employers love Handshake


"Beyond impressed with the new university recruiting platform Handshake. Since creating and updating our account 3 weeks ago, we have had more than 90 fully-qualified applicants for our full-time and internship opportunity. I encourage all career services professionals to look into the new platform. Mutually beneficial for students and employers!"

Tim Krenz
University Recruiter
GDH Consulting

"I'm located here in the southeast and to see the amount of schools switching from platforms they have used for years to Handshake has been nothing short of impressive. I love that I can search for students, send them direct in-app messages, and encourage them to apply and/or attend events on campus directly in Handshake"

Madie Martin
Sr. National College Recruiter

"Handshake is an employer’s one-stop-shop for recruiting. I can post to multiple schools at once, saving me time from having to switch back and forth between other platforms. And the turnaround time around customer feedback is outstanding. Handshake listens and delivers - I highly recommend!"

Stephanie Hawthorne
Candidate Pipeline Manager, West Region

"Handshake is great! The customer service is awesome and it saves recruiters time and money. Now, I can easily identify top candidates and surface opportunities to those students by utilizing student profiles. It’s a win-win for both students and employers! I wish more schools were on this platform!"

Erica Sposato
Senior Recruiter

"Handshake has had a very positive impact on my role as an employer and recruiter. By allowing me to access multiple schools through one portal, I can easily register for events, post jobs at multiple locations, make easy edits, and only have to remember one log-in!"
