Career Readiness and Employment Trends in the COVID Era — October 2020

The short and long-term effects of COVID-19 on student employment outcomes, enrollment, and institutional finances and operations

With 500,000 employers and 1,000+ educational institutions helping students find jobs on the platform, Handshake is in a unique position to uncover insights and trends in the education-to-employment pipeline.

This webinar will explore the short and long-term effects of COVID-19 on student employment outcomes, enrollment, and institutional finances and operations. We’ll share what changes we have seen in the COVID era, how we expect them to continue to shift, and opportunities to bring more jobs to the California workforce.

Join us for a data-driven discussion on:

  • How students and employers have responded to the shift to virtual recruiting and remote work—what’s working and what isn’t?
  • The impacts of the pandemic on student equity and outcomes, and how to surface the value of career readiness amid shifting financial pressures
  • The benefits of a robust network to grow employer partnerships, employment outcomes, and job-focused education in a post-COVID economy
