Recent grad, Abby, has just started her job search. So far, she secured interviews with a couple of companies, and is on the hunt to find a job with an organization that fits both her values and interests. When asked about what makes an organization stand out as being the right fit for her, she stated,
“An organization that genuinely cares about their employees is a big plus for me.”
She explained that salary is less important to her than a company who supports and encourages her individuality.
After meeting with the Associate Director for Alumni Engagement and Corporate Partnerships for Career and Professional Development Services and being introduced to the tool, Abby is using Handshake as a primary component for her job search. When talking about Handshake, Abby said, “I love how easy it is to use. I'll occasionally use LinkedIn if Handshake doesn't have the job category I'm looking for, but that's rare.”
