Handshake: the place to start, restart, or jumpstart YOUR career

By Garrett Lord

The New Year is a time when many of us reconsider our priorities and our lives, particularly around our careers.

You may be asking yourself: Where can I derive purpose from my work and be part of a mission that’s bigger than myself? Where can I grow personally, and in my career? Where can I surround myself with people who will support me and push me to be the best version of myself? Where can I join a company that’s thinking *big*?

Today, I’m excited to share that Handshake has raised an additional $200 million through our Series F round, valuing the company at $3.5 billion, to help everyone start, restart or jumpstart their career. You can read more aboutour fundraisehere.
