  • Handshake has definitely positively impacted our business objectives. Handshake pulled some data for us and we found out that 39% of our hired interns & new grads thus far followed up with us, received a message, or RSVP'd to an event on Handshake so far this year.

  • Our ROI dramatically increased in 2022 once we were able to begin utilizing campaigns
  • Our adoption rate and messaging/campaign usage is projected to increase in 2023, now that we have data points to prove how successful online outreach translates ton on-campus recruiting.

  • Summer internship recruiting for hard to fill roles has grown to be much easier. Without Handshake Talent Engagement Suite, we would be left scrambling to specific school job boards.
  • Hosting a simple one-hour informative event and reaching a large audience has helped with brand awareness. We don't necessarily see immediate obvious results but have been content with our ability to connect with underclassmen, getting them excited to apply for internships in a year or two.
  • Creating a talent segment and sending campaign messages is much more efficient and effective than reaching out to individual candidates with cold calls/emails.

  • 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.

  • ROI has been greatly improved when planning an event because knowing the number of students that plan to attend helps us to know whether or not the cost involved in creating the event is well spent.
  • The negative impact that Handshake has had on ROI is that we are a bit unsure as to whether a specific campus will be very familiar with Handshake or not. In cases when the campus is not, it implies wasted effort to reach out to non-responsive entities.
  • On the whole, it has been a great supplement to how we integrate ourselves into the world of higher-education, but, as with every platform, the fact that it is not standard practice to use it across the board means that it is still hit or miss.
