Did you know that completing your Handshake profile in full makes you 5 times more likely to be contacted by employers?

Your Handshake profile is the key to finding the job or internship you are looking for! You increase your chances of having a recruiter message you directly with job opportunities and event invitations. In fact, 80% of students who fill out their profile receive a message from a recruiter.

Additionally, Handshake gives you personalised job recommendations based on the information you provide on your profile—so you can find jobs and internships that are right for you.

In this 30 minute workshop, you will work with our Career Coaches to develop your Handshake profile so that it is fully prepared for job applications and networking opportunities on Handshake. This session will include:

Which parts of your Handshake Profile are most important to include?
What are the top things employers search for on Handshake?
Why should you make your Handshake profile public?

You will have an opportunity to get feedback on your completed Handshake profile which will allow you to stand out to employers who will be actively seeking University of Liverpool students and graduates.
