Handshake at the University of Minnesota Newsletter

Career Services Administration brings you the 'Handshake at the University of Minnesota' newsletter, a monthly newsletter for student-facing staff or simply staff who want to know more about Handshake from the student perspective. Each month, we’ll show you “Student how-to’s”, University-wide data pulled directly from Handshake, and share relevant behind-the-scenes information about the specific topics. 

Please send any questions about Handshake to your college/campus superuser, and any questions related to this newsletter to [email protected] .
