Segments make it easier to identify and recruit students who meet your school year and degree qualifications.

Premium features are for Handshake Premium accounts only. For more information, please check out this resource.
The candidate filter Graduation and Class Standing indicates a student's class year, as well as degree type.
- When using segment filters, the students included are determined by looking at all of the student's education details that they've made available on their Handshake profile.
- For example, if you're seeking BA candidates who majored in Business, the results may display students who have completed a B.A degree in that specific degree, and are in pursuit of a higher degree, e.g., Masters.

In the section, select one of the following options:
- New Grad Hires
- Intern Hires
- Recent Grad Hires
Once selected, we'll use our smart defaults to pre-select the corresponding class of to match your search. Although pre-selections for class of are made, you can adjust the filters at any time.
Note: if you choose "custom graduation date range", the smart defaults aren't available.
Custom graduation date (not required)
To add a specific graduation date range, click the blue text "Choose custom graduation date range".
Next, click into the Graduating After (start date) and Graduating Before (end date) fields, then select the date from the calendar modal.
Degree Types (not required)
If you would like to add a degree type, check the box to the left of each desired degree type.
- Postdoctoral Studies
- Technical Diploma
Note: some profiles which meet your criteria may include a degree type. Selecting specific degree types may exclude those profiles.
As filters are added, a dynamic query will update with the number of students that meet the filters selected.
We rotate 'Class Of' labels once per year (on July 1st), so they will always be updated for the current School Year.
Your existing segments will remain as is - the target audience may shift but the criteria will remain in place.
- Class Of / Degree Types: all school years will be retained - they'll just be updated to reflect the new Class Of / Degree Types.
- Grad Date Range: all graduate date ranges will be migrated to maintain their graduation date range.
