What Other Universities are Saying 

We think Handshake is pretty awesome, but you don't need to take our word for it.  From UC Berkeley to Wellesley Handshake is designed to supercharge engagement at every school. 

"One of our students already landed a co-op with SpaceX at the beginning of the semester, which is the first student that we had 'registered' for a co-op / intern at the company. Prior to Handshake, we truly had zero contact with them. Handshake opened the door!" - Kyle Liechty, Michigan State University

"I wanted to make sure that our students were at the greatest advantage, and that we had cutting edge technology. Handshake is, in a sense, the platform of the future. And I think Handshake had the technical flexibility and knew how to handle challenges that would really support the mission of this career center." - Tom Devlin, UC Berkeley
