EVERYBODY CAN START HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HANDSHAKE

Handshake is coming to Saddleback College and we're very excited for the opportunities it's going to offer employers, students, and staff/faculty! 

Handshake will soon be Saddleback College's campus-wide career management platform for students to find jobs and internships, find career events and workshops, find career fairs, schedule appointments, engage with recruiters and connect with peers. 

Handshake will also be the first stop for employers across industries and divisions to create accounts, post jobs, attend recruiting events, and connect directly with students!

*** Pro Tip for Students - Students that complete their Handshake Profile 100% are 5x more likely to receive direct messages from recruiters!


HANDSHAKE LAUNCH - TIMELINE OF EVENTS 

NOW - We encourage students to download and save any documents stored in the current Student Employment System (Symplicity) so it's ready to upload to Handshake.
9/7 We will invite all employers to our Saddleback College Handshake 
9/27 We will launch to students at Saddleback College. (If you have a @ivc.edu email, you'll have to connect to IVC's Handshake!)
9/27 to 10/8 We are offering a series of 'How To Use Your Handshake Account' workshops. 
10/27/21 we are planning a Virtual Career Fair in Handshake


Planning and implementation of Handshake has been an inter-departmental project involving many academic divisions and departments. Rita Soultanian, Director of the Career Resource Center and her team have been instrumental in creating an engaging experience for students in Handshake. Thank you to all who have helped and to all faculty/staff that will be joining us in Handshake!
