Overall Satisfaction with Handshake

We use Handshake to recruit from local and non-local colleges and universities for intern and entry-level positions in the fields of graphic design, industrial design, management information systems, finance, human resources, logistics, marketing, and information technology. Our interns do project-based work that aligns with their major and then present to a team at our company at the end of the semester on their findings. Projects can range from product design to a full marketing plan for a consumer segment. We find Handshake to be the best way to reach the target audience at a minimal cost. The product is very user-friendly and easy to use/understand. You can post to one or multiple schools at a time, which is a very nice feature.


  • Ease of use
  • Ability to connect with schools
  • Ability to target the right students


  • The approval process can be lengthy to post a position
  • We have driven down our time to fill for our intern program.
  • We have driven down our cost-per-hire for intern positions.
  • We have increased our applicant pool.
We have not found a comparable product to Handshake. It is one-of-a-kind in a league of its own.
Very well-suited to intern and entry-level recruiting. Not suited for advanced positions. The software allows us to find any type of student that meets our changing business needs. Our interns work in every facet of our business each semester and do a project that can add to their portfolio/resume and, at the same time, adds value to our business.
