Handshake, the LinkedIn for college students, is offering a virtual platform that helps students find and land jobs as the workforce shifts to one that is primarily remote.
WHICH UNIVERSITIES WILL BE ONLINE IN THE FALL?
The platform launched as students gear up for the start of the school year in the fall and as the graduation class of 2020 continues to traverse an intangible and isolated job market as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The job market is still a challenging one,” the VP of Higher Education and Student Success at Handshake, Christine Cruzvergara, told FOX Business. “As we all know, there have been a lot of layoffs. There is still high unemployment at the moment. There are certain industries that have taken a huge hit. However, you do see certain industries still hiring pretty rapidly.”
