External Employers: Introduction to Handshake

Handshake is now the #1 platform at the Nation's top universities.  We launched this new resource to provide more internship and employment opportunities beyond college. We want YOU to be a part of the many employers that recruit from Blazer Nation! Students and alumni will have a chance to complete their profile by telling their interests, skills, and background! Career Centers and universities that upgrade to Handshake report increased engagement, employment, and internship placement.  Handshake helps every student find meaningful work in all majors by serving as a conduit to establish mutually beneficial relations between both the students and employers.
