Helping All Students and Recent Grads Find Their Next Opportunity

Handshake is the college career network of the future, launched in 2014 to to transform the recruiting experience for college students, career centers and employers. Our mission is to democratize access to opportunity: To help every college student find the right job for them, no matter where they go to school, what they’re majoring in, or who they know.

We do this by connecting students to a national network, all built on a rapidly scalable mobile infrastructure. Handshake’s network gives students access to more career opportunities, provides employers with efficient access to talent, and gives colleges more tools to drive student engagement.

The Handshake community includes 17 million students and young alumni at more than 900 universities. We connect talent from across all 50 states with over 425,000 employers recruiting on Handshake - from every Fortune 500 company to thousands of local small businesses, nonprofits, startups, and more.
