Handshake Product Enhancements and Tips for Digital Recruitment Strategies

  1. Interviews now have the ability to include a hyperlink URL in the medium, office location, room and interviewer fields. When students click on this link it will open a new window and launch the video conferencing technology you have chosen.
  2. If you’re no longer visiting campuses, list your virtual events in Handshake. By listing your event, we can promote it to our students, enabling you to track RSVPs as students sign up and follow up with them afterwards. Use Handshake effectively to promote Q&As, office tours, and employee panels. Here’s an article on how to create virtual events in Handshake.
  3. Create authentic relationships by proactively messaging candidates that fit your qualified criteria using search filters and personalized outreach. This can drive both attendees to your virtual events and applicants to your jobs and internships.
  4. When posting a job or internship that “allows remote workers”, we recommend including verbiage indicating this in your position description as well. Students can search for positions using keyword search.
  5. Expand your digital outreach efforts to qualified candidates in new regions and schools without having to travel to them. A key benefit of digital outreach can be accessing a wider audience of talent. Handshake has put together a number of resources to help you navigate this challenging time, from webinars to guides and best practices. Check out their Guide to Hosting Virtual Recruiting Events.
