About Handshake Job Roles (Employers)

Handshake provides 380+ Job Role groups, identified by our team using resources such as Career Interests, user research, majors, and data coverage of job details. Assigning relevant job roles on postings is one of the most reliable ways to make sure the right students see their jobs. 

A student’s preferred job role is one of the strongest predictors of whether or not they’ll apply to a particular job. Students using Handshake select which role groups they’re interested in, and relevant job postings are highlighted for students.
