Starting next year, the University Mary Washington will be replacing Employ-an Eagle with a new system called Handshake. According to their official website, Handshake was started in 2014 in San Francisco, and has continued to grow. Handshake is similar to LinkedIn in that students can set up a profile that employers can look at. This profile will have pertinent information such as the student’s current year, major, interests and any previous work experience or internship experience they might have.
