How it works

Employers register in advance through the Handshake career services platform beginning on November 1. Once their reservation is approved, they can set up group and one-on-one chat sessions for their staff to interact with students. When student registration opens, they will be able to see those group and one-on-one sessions and fill their schedules by registering for those options. If you don’t have an employer account on Handshake already, be sure to set one up today!
