We’ve been there, and we know that navigating the job search can be intimidating. We also believe that although talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is not. That’s why we’re here. Handshake was created to level the playing field and ensure that all students and recent graduates have equal access to meaningful jobs and internships.

Handshake’s network of 5 million active students from more than 800 universities provides a unique perspective into the developments shaping early career talent recruiting. We connect talent from across all 50 states with over 300,000 employers recruiting on Handshake – from every Fortune 500 company to thousands of local mom and pop shops, nonprofits, startups, and more.

We embrace a growth mindset, enabling our team to face obstacles with a tenacious desire to turn challenges into opportunities for growth. We are relentlessly curious, working to close the gap between what we currently know and what we need to know to be as effective as possible.

We are building an inclusive and diverse community—both on the Handshake platform and across our team. We believe that diverse teams create more thoughtful and innovative solutions, and seek to hire, develop and retain talented people of all different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. 

“I’m so proud of the team and the culture we are building at Handshake. As the company continues to grow, we are committed to maintaining a workplace environment that is inclusive and supportive—and empowers our employees to thrive professionally.” – Ben Christensen, Co-Founder
