Want to quickly and easily increase your chances of finding the job you want on Handshake? Add your job interests to your profile.
When you fill in your interests, two really great things happen:
1. We send you better, more relevant job recommendations.
2. You’re more likely to have a recruiter message you! 80% of students who share their interests on Handshake receive a message from a recruiter. The more you include, the better your chances of having a recruiter find you.
That’s a pretty big return on not a lot of work. And the best part is—filling out your interests is as easy as sharing your opinion with us. Who knows what you like and don’t like better than you?
What are job interests?
The “Your Interests” section of your Handshake profile includes:
These are common fields that employers use to search for potential candidates—so including them in your profile is essential to getting recruited.
What are you looking for?
You may be thinking “What if I don’t know what I’m looking for?” That’s ok. We’ll give you some suggestions. And, like the rest of your profile information, you can always change your interests later.
