We launched new filters on the employers page that help your team identify employers you might like to review more closely for potential moral, ethical, or legal concerns—like being a cannabis company or third party recruiter. Tags mirror reasons our partners are asked to select when declining an employer.

Signal boosting via employer collections
Highlight employers with a special quality that's uniquely compelling to your students. Boosted employers will be featured throughout the student experience, embedding your team’s expertise more deeply into Handshake.

Hyperlinks in appointment comments
You can now add hyperlinks in appointment comments to share resources with students or your staff before or after appointments.
Custom appointment availability message (beta)
You can now customize a message shown to students when there are no available appointment slots. This allows your team to direct students to relevant resources if they can’t schedule time with you.
- Learn how to configure a custom appointment availability message here.
Event search (experiment)
We’re testing a new search experience with students ahead of a full launch later this summer. We conducted research earlier this spring to learn what matters most to students when searching for events and fairs. Learnings from that research informed this update, which splits out events with and without employers, helping students easily find relevant programming.

Events featuring alumni
This fall, you’ll be able to add information about alumni (like graduation year, major, current company, and a short bio) when you host events featuring alumni speakers. Students will be able to see this information when browsing events.
Job auto-approval rules
Later this summer, you’ll be able to auto-approve jobs while setting exceptions for certain types of jobs you’d like to review manually—like part time jobs, jobs in a particular industry, or jobs out of state.

Over the last few months, we’ve conducted research to learn about what matters most to students when searching for and attending events and fairs. In the coming weeks, we’re updating event pages to highlight information that’s most important to students, help them find alternative events if they can’t make the time, and display new event category tags (that your team and employers can select) that help students understand the event’s purpose.
In the coming months, we will be doing scoped product-based experiments to learn alongside our school partners about the opportunities that are most valuable for students. We'll be exploring ways to help students discover skills-to-career paths, demonstrate their skills, and build additional skills. Please reach out to your Relationship Manager if you have any questions!
