Virtual Employer Resources

While virtual recruiting certainly brings some challenges, there are some great opportunities that it offers as well. Without the constraints of travel budgets and narrow windows of time on campus, it’s a great opportunity to reach out to more students, and use various strategies to  highlight unique aspects of company culture, invite current employees/alumni in roles to engage with prospective candidates, provide more in-depth insights into day-to-day responsibilities of the jobs for which you are recruiting, and more.


Handshake’s Employer Blog, Help Center and Going Digital Resource Hub have a variety of great resources from engaging early talent all the way through conducting virtual onboarding and hosting effective virtual internships. Below you will find some of our favorite How To Articles and Best Practices form these resources.
