5 Day Handshake Challenge

Did you know?:
According to Handshake, students who have completed their profiles in Handshake are 2.5x more likely to see and apply for relevant opportunities and 80% of students who fill out their profile are more likely to get messaged by a recruiter. Let the platform do some of the heavy lifting for you!

The Career and Professional Development office is running a 5 Day Handshake Challenge from Monday, August 19 – Friday, November 1, 2024. Within that timeframe, students are encouraged to take steps to create a more robust profile. Only students who complete the challenge, their Handshake profile, and this form by November 1, will be entered for a chance to win one of our giveaways.

How do you complete your profile?:
