Excellent for: Internships Part-time roles Developmental programs for new graduates with 4-year degrees Roles where the person just needs to have 1-2 years of experience plus a degree Diversity recruiting Not as good for: highly technical roles that don't require 4-year degrees (ie electricians)

Handshake
  • I've found it's hard to narrow down segments to get specific. For example, there is no "structural" engineering or "geotechnical" engineering major selection so just going off what students may or may not put on their profiles doesn't pull great results. The location preference option is also great but has caused issues for us because it pulls from locations that students apply to (even if the job had more than one listed), so they don't necessarily note it on their profile or actually want every place the system pulls.
  • The inbox feature is great for replies, but hard to come back to any that are already opened. I receive dozens of messages at a time and a tick of the system that can be irritating is that each time I reply to an individual message, it takes me back to the top of my inbox and shows my reply as unread.
  • I think the tagging could be beefed up to allow campaigns/messages to filter out or in people that have certain tags (or just unselect people in general). We've on several occasions accidentally messaged candidates we didn't want to because we can't see who is included in the bulk list.
  • It'd be really nice to be able to just search candidates by name, school, degree, etc. in the system without having to make a segment too!

Handshake
I have reached out to customer support only once or twice, but they got back to me quickly and were transparent about timeline and what they knew/didn't know. We are often satisfied receiving help/advice from our monthly calls with Handshake Talent Engagement Suite so contacting support beyond that is rarely necessary.

In terms of overall application experience, I think the other companies do a better job with richer features. Where Handshake shines, however, is in how it 1. is mainly focused on new grads and internships, making filtering less necessary, and 2. its suite of other features available that integrate well with the applying side.

  • Since the job description has to usually be approved by someone at the university, their feedback has helped me develop a more clear and thorough listing.
  • I have received some great candidates through Handshake that have gone on to become interns I've kept in touch with after leaving.
