What is Handshake?
Handshake is a user-friendly, mobile platform that connects students to jobs, and recruiters to students. Students can easily find jobs and internships to apply for, optional career-preparation to adopt, mentors to counsel with, and career-related information to read.
How can students benefit from Handshake?
Beyond exploring job opportunities and connecting with recruiters, students can schedule appointments with career advisors, register for internships for academic credit, view upcoming events, interviews and fairs, and keep a log of ideas in a personal career journal.
How you can help
Students trust Daemen College faculty. They view what you emphasize as being important. When students come to you seeking advice and counsel, please make sure they are using Handshake. Perhaps consider offering credit in your courses for using Handshake to research x-number of employers, complete a career plan, or upload a resume and manifest their career interests. Handshake uses machine learning to intelligently recommend jobs/internships, events, and articles to students according to the information they enter. And this is all live - we have already approved employers to recruit from our school, and there are yet 50,000 other employers in the system to whom students can reach out.
