Genworth Mortgage Insurance—a subsidiary of Genworth Financial—was recently recognized as a 2019 Leader in Diversity by the Triangle Business Journal.

In this competitive hiring landscape, earning coveted accolades for recruiting diverse talent is no easy feat. Thanks to Handshake Premium, Genworth is able to proactively tap into different schools, organizations, and students in one easy place, and have a much bigger applicant pool than they would have otherwise.

Today, Genworth finds and engages their ideal early talent segments from Handshake’s growing network of over 5 million active students across 800 schools and counting.

At Handshake’s Early Career Summit earlier this spring, we sat down with Emma Duncan, College Relations Manager at Genworth, to learn how having an applicant pool at-the-ready through Handshake Premium enabled her small full time campus recruiting team to fulfill last-minute hiring requests in a timely manner.

My name is Emma Duncan and I am the College Relations Manager at Genworth.

Genworth is a long-term care insurance company as well as a mortgage insurance company. I am hiring for all of our internships and our different entry-level development program, so it’s a wide variety of roles.

I had different challenges that were presented to me this spring with hiring managers having different needs at the last-minute and Handshake Premium allowed me to fulfill their needs in a very timely manner. —Emma Duncan

We became a Premium customer for Handshake back in November [2018], and then before we were just using Handshake as a regular [core] customer. I am recruiting team of practically one and then I have contract help during our busy season.

Handshake Premium has allowed me to go into one place; target different schools, and organizations, and students; and then quickly have a much bigger applicant pool than I would have otherwise.

The one phrase that I would use to describe Handshake Premium is that it is a huge time-saver. I had different challenges that were presented to me this spring with hiring managers having different needs at the last-minute and Handshake Premium allowed me to fulfill their needs in a very timely manner.
