Handshake @ Illinois replaces I-Link

by the College of Education at Illinois / Aug 10, 2017

Handshake @ Illinois is students' new career-services platform to access postings for jobs and internships, on-campus interviews, workshops, career coaching appointments, and much more.  Handshake is used at more than 400 schools nationwide and by 230,000 employers worldwide, exposing students to more employers and job postings than ever before.

Handshake @ Illinois provides personalized job recommendations and career information based on students' profiles and site usage, similar to Amazon and LinkedIn. Given this, it is very important to have a complete and accurate profile to maximize search results. The more information students provide Handshake, the more useful it will be. Some of students' basic profile information has been preloaded.
