In the two months since Puget Sound launched its new online job board, nearly half of the college’s undergraduate students have activated their accounts, giving them access to more than half a million employers nationwide.

Called Handshake, the career search platform launched in January, replacing LoggerJobs. Sue Dahlin, associate director of career and employer engagement, says the platform is more than a place to find career and internship opportunities. “It’s a hub for all things related to the career search,” she says. Students can schedule appointments with the Career and Employment Services (CES) office, store resumes and cover letters, and craft profiles similar to how they would on LinkedIn, but Dahlin says Handshake caters to students more than professionals by allowing them to talk about their hobbies and interests in a way that isn’t possible on LinkedIn.
