Enhancing your opportunities to be contacted by employers in Handshake

Employers are busy.  Defining needs, role requirements and sorting through candidate options is time consuming.  Handshake was designed to make on campus candidates easy to find.  Are you optimizing this important tool to help them find you?  

Many students misunderstand or have missed steps to make sure that they are easy to find on Handshake, and as such are missing great opportunities and direct employer outreach.  Do you know if you might be a student who is not easily found?  

You can make it easier for employers to find you by having a public Handshake profile. With a public profile, employers are more likely to invite you to attend events or apply for their employment opportunities because they have found students with excellent resumes and profiles that demonstrate strong academic performance, but also involvement and leadership experience outside of the classroom.  

The links below provide instructions to create a public profile and additional features in Handshake.  Working with your career coach can also be time well spent to ensure you are visible; schedule an appointment today in Handshake.
