  • Handshake Tips
    • Check postings in Handshake frequently. If you are actively searching, you would want to check daily for any new positions (can change sorting from "Relevance" to "Date added" in the Jobs tab). 
    • Customize your application materials by having a tailored resume to the position (look for what skills and experiences you can connect with the job specifically) 
    • Save your resume and other application materials as a PDF with your first and last name. If you submit your resume to a job as a Word document, the formatting may be viewed differently on a hiring manager's computer!
