Handshake has redesigned the on-boarding experience for new students to better set them up for success. This new experience not only looks brighter and cleaner, but it will also help you to showcase your skills and experience to employers.
1. Claiming accounts in Handshake is how we allow students to decide to share their information publicly to employers and other students in the network. Whether a student decides to become public in Handshake is entirely their decision and is also a decision they can easily change later.
2. Employment options
5. We ask the student what they are looking for in a company. To read more on this question, you can check out Employer Attributes in Student Onboarding.
6. Types of jobs
8. For schools who have synced their coursework data with Handshake, students will be able to easily select from their courses the courses they'd like to share with employers. Employers can then search for students who've taken certain courses. For certain majors, you will see a generic list of courses you can add. The courses there are the ones that if you've taken, employers are interested in reaching out.
10. Clubs or Organizations
11. Work/Volunteer history
12. Interesting jobs: Students have the opportunity to mark jobs as interesting or not interesting to help us better personalize their job recommendations.
