At Handshake, we’re always looking for ways to offer support to our community, especially during these uncertain times.

That’s one reason why we recently surveyed students and employers to learn how COVID-19 has impacted their plans. We complemented survey findings with behavior from our network of more than 500K employers and 6M active students to match what students and employers are saying with how they’re actually behaving.

In our latest report, “Rethinking Early Talent Hiring in the Era of COVID-19: What College Students Need Now,” learn how students are prioritizing their job search amidst the change, including:

  • Attendance in virtual events and engagement with current job listings
  • Rising student interest in sectors such as healthcare and nonprofit
  • Importance of employer brand perception during this time
