Hillsdale Handshake

In an effort to increase the value of our employer partnerships we take a unique approach to the connections we make on our Career Services platform, Handshake. Namely, we only approve employers to post jobs and internships to our students if we have an established relationship with them.

At the heart of this approach is the belief that stronger interpersonal relationships between Hillsdale College and our partner companies will generate trust, thereby increasing the meaningful activity on the platform. The students are able to trust that the employers on Handshake are eager to hire them. While you can trust that we value your presence on Handshake and we endorse your company in its pursuit of new talent. As a preferred employer we want to ensure that our relationship is improving and that your access to our students is the best possible. If you have not already done so, please, connect with Hillsdale College on Handshake today.
