Post-Webinar Discussion - Leveling Up with Handshake Academy & Handshake Community




  • Official comment

    Thank you again to the folks that attended today! Wanted to share the "word cloud" from our Slido question "What best practices or areas of the platform would you like to learn about how your peers are using?"

    If anyone has a best practice related to one of these topics above, we look forward to seeing your future "Best Practice" post and know that folks will really appreciate your knowledge sharing! A reminder of how to post a best practice can be found below.

    Thanks for a great session. I'm curious about targeted emails! By class year? By major? Are there analytics to say who opened?

    Hello All,

    My name is Naomi Pollek and I am the Manager, Student & Employer Relations at Milwaukee Area Technical College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My greatest take-away today was the updates to how Handshake Academy was revamped and why. This section has changed a bit over the years so that context for why and why the new format was helpful. My answers to the two questions posed are below:

    1. What are you most looking forward to using the Handshake Community forum for? Following Tips, Tricks & Misc. as I am newer to my current institution and we could use many procedure and system updates and now that I am fully staffed I want to dive into this head first in 2023.
    2. What is one best practice or workflow that you look forward to sharing with the Community forum in the coming year? I look forward to sharing more about what we are doing with Employer Collections and learning what others are doing with this new feature.

    We LOVE Handshake and continually look for ways to stay on top of product updates, TIPS and Techniques from "expert" users to better engage with out students!  We have an awesome engagement rate and want to get it even higher with Marketing, Targeted Messaging and Employer Engagement, love the new look for Handshake Community launch!  Thank you!

    Jackie Stancil - Thanks for coming today! More about Targeted Emails can be found in the following Help Center articles. Your RM would also be a great resource to talk more about the tool! 

    Naomi Pollek - Thank you for joining! Excited to see you engage on the forum :) 

    Angie Fitzpatrick - I know others would love to hear about your engagement rate and how you all get that done! Excited to have you on here.
