Handshake's focus has always been to give college students and grads better avenues to find work, internships, and experience through their digital platform, and through partnering with as many campuses as possible to spread the opportunity.
According to their website, Handshake “helps students, all students, find meaningful careers”. By offering nine million career opportunities with over 200,000 employers, Handshake connects college students with the right career field for each student in each major.
Director of University Career Services Robert Liddell sees the value and importance of students taking advantage of this new platform.
“Handshake will help UTC students identify, join, and grow their emerging career community. Students who are clarifying their interests, seeking out experience and transitioning to professional roles and communities will find a wealth of help in Handshake,” Liddell said.
On the UTC Handshake network there are currently 1,639 jobs and internships available from 2,067 employers. By investing a little time into developing a Handshake profile, students at UTC could find multiple career opportunities as close as Downtown Chattanooga.
Michigan Tech students Garrett Lord, Ben Christensen and Scott Ringwelski developed Handshake in June 2014. They discovered that the majority of internships and job opportunities that appealed to them were several hundred miles away.
By setting out to create a recruiting platform that would put students on even footing by leveraging technology, Handshake was born. Five years later, this development is the leading platform in its field.
