Handshake

Why Handshake?

The decision to move to Handshake was made based on a recommendation from the 2016-17 Career Services Task Force and input from career services units, employers, and students.   

The Task Force was charged by the Provost to recommend improvements to the career services experience for students and employers. They identified that our current event and recruiting software, BuckyNet and myECS, insufficiently served employers and students 

After an evaluation process that included input from all career advising units across campus, Handshake was selected.
