We are committed to democratizing opportunity.

We believe talent is distributed evenly, but opportunity is not. Handshake was founded to fix this.

Our founders met at Michigan Tech, a great engineering school that’s eight hours away from any big city and covered in snow all winter. Not a lot of recruiters outside of Michigan came through.

They wanted access to more - and more diverse - opportunities than any school’s career services office could historically provide. So they started Handshake.

Four years later, Handshake unites 475 schools, 8M students and young alumni, and 200k+ employers on 1 career network. We are working together to help every student build a meaningful career no matter where they go to school, what they major in, or who they know.
