We’re rolling out an update to help students get contextual information about working for a particular employer. For job postings with no messageable employer, we'll display a messageable student who submitted a review of the employer or who listed the employer in the work experience section of their profile.
Group Session Follow Up Messages
Students can now send messages to employers they met at virtual fair group sessions. Before the session, they’ll see the option to message the employer via their virtual fair schedule. After the session, they’ll see a modal pop up in Handshake prompting them to send a message, and get a reminder to send a message in the post-fair email.
For Career Services...
Signal boosting will allow your team to highlight employers with a special quality — like an alumni connection or DEI commitment — that's uniquely compelling to your students. Highlighted employers will be featured throughout the student experience, embedding your team’s expertise more deeply into Handshake. Signal boosting will launch in beta later this spring.

Event Creation Form
We’re updating the user interface of the event creation form and splitting out “virtual” as an event medium, instead of an event type. Additionally, the option to invite employers to an event will be included directly within the event creation form itself for a more seamless experience.
Importing Additional Student Email Addresses
This spring, we’ll allow career services to import multiple .edu email addresses per student account. This update will help prevent students from accidentally creating a duplicate account if your institution issues multiple email aliases.
