On Handshake, you can create three different types of events to connect with students and alumni.
For instructions on creating a new event, refer to How to Request an Event.
An On-Campus event is an event held on a school campus, and you'll work directly with that school to secure a space on campus for your event. Examples of an on-campus event include an Information Session or Panel.
Because you'll be working directly with one school to host this event, you'll want to make sure you select this school as the 'host' school when requesting the event.
As soon as you complete the form, the request will be sent directly to the school for approval. When approved, students will be able to view and RSVP to the event. Learn more about Accessing Event and Fair RSVPs.
We recommend working with the Career Center at this school for any event assistance.
An off-campus event is an event held by your organization at a location other than on-campus. Examples of off-campus events include events held at an office or recreation facility.
Core employers can promote one event per school, and will need to create separate events to request more than one of the same event to multiple schools.
*Handshake Premium partners can select multiple schools or choose a School List if hosting an event for a group of schools, like HBCUs. For additional details, refer to How to Use School Lists.
Premium features are for Handshake Premium accounts only. For more information, please check out this resource.*
While the process of creating a virtual event is generally the same for Core and Premium employers, Premium employers have access to additional parameters.
If you're a Core employer, learn more about Hosting Virtual Events (for Core Employers).
If you're a Premium partner, refer to Handshake’s Guide to Hosting Virtual Recruiting Events.
