Career fairs are powerful tools for creating authentic, human to human connections at scale.
We are proud to be covering costs for up to 250,000 students and 10,000 employers to attend UK and Ireland-wide virtual careers fairs - absolutely free.
Our Virtual Career Fairs tool has already had a huge impact in addressing the systemic challenges and structures that have prevented companies from recruitment more broadly. In our recent research paper, we explored some of the key issues arising from the switch to virtual.
Since launching virtual career fairs as a response to COVID, Handshake have hosted over 4,000 career fairs in the system creating millions of authentic student and employer connections.
At Handshake we want to expand the impact of virtual fairs even further by making them available to every student, no matter what university they attend. By creating authentic human-to-human connections at scale, Handshake will help ensure every student has access to meaningful opportunities.
