Getting the most out of Handshake — Jessica’s Career Tip of the Week

Posted by on Feb 22, 2021 in Career, Resources | 0 comments

The first step in getting the most of out Handshake is to claim your Handshake account. Handshake asks the student to answer a variety of questions from their major and GPA to their ideal industries. When logging onto Handshake’s home page, at the bottom there is a list of jobs that are selected just for you based on factors like your major, GPA, if you require sponsorship and more. When beginning your internship/job search, this is the easiest way to apply to multiple jobs that you’re qualified for. If you’ve already uploaded your general technical resume to Handshake, applications can be submitted with a single click. However, make sure to apply directly to company websites as well!
