Alumni Hub Beta
Alumni Hub helps you build, track, and nurture relationships with your most important alumni contacts. Centralizing key data about employer users who attended your institution, the Hub acts as a jumping-off point for engaging your alumni-turned-employer partners and unlocking unique opportunities for your students.
- We just launched Alumni Hub in beta—thanks to all who offered to participate! It will be released to all schools this summer.

Scheduled Reports to Amazon S3
You can now send scheduled reports (and dashboards) to Amazon S3 endpoints. This expands your team’s options for sharing Handshake data with external platforms.
We’ve started slowly rolling out a new student homepage that calls attention to important actions students can take to enhance their job search experience. We plan to use the top section of the homepage to feature a variety of tasks related to updating profile information and connecting with employers. The new homepage is currently live for 25% of students.
Job Editing Opt Out
To help a small handful of employers with strict security standards around job postings, we’ve introduced the option for employers to turn off career services job editing permissions. If an employer opts out, only users associated with their company account can create, edit, and clone jobs. This option is now available for employers.
- Regardless of whether an employer has opted out, schools will always be able to edit label and college requirements, apply and expiration dates, and the “interested in interviewing” checkbox.
- We’ve added a new “Disabled CS Job Editing” field to our Analytics portal that you can use to identify employers that have opted out.

We’re developing three new insights dashboards to help your team take action on data related to equity, virtual engagement, and employer relations.
Virtual Fair Follow Up Messages
Students who meet with employers 1:1 at virtual fairs are often eager to keep the conversation going. In the coming weeks, we’ll prompt students to send a follow up message after they complete a 1:1 session with an employer. If they prefer to wait until the end of the fair, students will find messaging threads pre-created in their inbox for every 1:1 they attended.
- In the fall, we’ll update our post-fair email for students to remind them who they met with 1:1 and encourage them to send a follow up message.
Mobile App Update
Later this summer, we’ll launch an updated layout for our iOS and Android apps—the fresh, new look will emphasize more opportunities for students to build relationships with employers. Check out an early mockup of what the new jobs and relationships feed might look like here.
Parsing Public Resumes/CVs
When students upload a resume or CV, they’re shown the option to automatically populate their Handshake profile with information from the resume/CV. We’re now able to parse even more information from resumes/CVs and want to provide students with more opportunities to take advantage of this enhancement. In the coming months, we'll offer to build out student profiles in more places that involve a resume/CV upload, like when registering for a virtual fair or applying for a job.
- For students that have an existing resume/CV on their profile that’s public to employers, we’ll automatically parse out key information like work experiences and skills so that employers can use it (aggregated and anonymized) to target their messaging campaigns. This will save students the step of having to add the information to their profiles and make them more likely to receive relevant outreach from employers.
Job Page Refresh
We’re updating the job page for employers to make it more actionable and easier to navigate. Updated tabs for job details, target schools, student matches, and applicants will encourage employers to connect with a wider pool of students.
