Handshake Reminders and Tips

Get the most out of the Handshake recruiting system possible – here are a few reminders:

1. Be sure to include your GPA and Graduation Date as well as experiences and student organization involvement on your profile. Employers are using profiles much like resumes and expect that information when they are searching for the candidate that are the best fit for their position(s)

2. Utilize key word searches for job and internship search- the more you search the more precise the machine learning in the system will get and the more relevant your suggested items will be

3. Having trouble signing in? Here are two tips to try:

  • Try switching browsers
  • Clear your browser cache
