Sonoma State University transitions to Handshake for student job opportunities

Sonoma State University has recently transitioned from their job search engine, Seawolf Jobs, to the widely popular and accessible Handshake.

“Handshake has some more dynamic features and gives us access to more jobs for students,” Career Center coordinator Audra Grady Verrier said. Handshake is often mobile as well, “So students can access more of the system on their phone,” continued Verrier. 

The job-seeking platform for recent graduates was launched in 2014 by three Michigan Tech graduates who were "struck by the inequality" in access to opportunities. By the end of last year, Handshake had partnered with over 500 schools and had as many as 100 employees and counting.

Handshake is not only used for full-time jobs but is used for internships and part-time jobs also. “I am so excited we can bring this much-needed change to our community of Seawolves,” career advisor Becky Young said.  

The switch from Seawolf Jobs to Handshake is in full effect and as of March 1 there will no longer be a Seawolf Jobs. The change has an abundance of benefits, but having “employers [that] are already on Handshake… creates more opportunities for [students],” Career Advisor Kelsey Bensky said. 

Now employers can connect directly with Sonoma State “rather than creating a new login on simplicity and remembering they need to hire Sonoma State students specifically,” Bensky added.
