Handshake is truly a campus-wide platform at Saddleback College and I'd like to just say thank you to all those that helped in the planning to bring Handshake to our campus. A special thanks to Rita Soultanian, Director of the Career Resource Center and her team for being instrumental in creating an engaging experience for students in Handshake.
