Why Work at Handshake

“I believe that leadership is an action, not a title. Handshake as a culture and company operates this way. We are still small and nimble – everyone in leadership positions take their role and the impact we have seriously, and we’re able to effect positive change. The daily decisions we make are not only to strengthen our teams but to positively impact students, our university and employer partners.”

Christine Cruzvergara, VP of Higher Education and Student Success

“I was incredibly inspired by the mission. I’ve spent the past decade working with small business owners and helping them find great work. Joining Handshake felt like an exciting continuation of this passion – helping people find work that makes them thrive – and I was excited to work with Gen Z and students! I could see the commitment and purpose from the team internally, and I knew I wanted to be part of it.”
