Saved Searches

You can create Saved Searches in Handshake to assist you in your job search. Set up a Saved Search for each type of position you're interested in and you will receive automatic emails when jobs and internships match the criteria you set up. It's incredibly easy and by being proactive for each type of position you're interested in, you'll save yourself all sorts of time!

Setting up a Saved Search in Handshake:

  • Log in to Handshake.
  • Click on the JOBS tab.
  • Choose the type of criteria you would like to search but try to not be too specific. For example, you may want to choose a related keyword in the search box and indicate a city or state in the location field. You may also want to explore other options which you'll find listed across the search field. Be sure to click on the All filters tab to see more!
  • You will see results from your search automatically appear.
  • The results will automatically populate in the left column.
  • Above the results, under "Don't Miss Out!" click "Save your search." Then click "Edit your notifications" to choose your job alert settings.

Don't limit yourself to just one Saved Search. Create as many as will be helpful however you'll most likely need no more than ten.
