Handshake Experience Manager

Lindsay Smith (She/Her)

I support students, alumni, and employer partners by managing the online recruitment database serving UW Seattle and UW Bothell: Handshake. Whether you’re a student looking for a relevant career opportunity, an employer looking to build brand awareness on campus, or a UW advisor looking to assist students in their career and internship goals, I can help!

I am a graduate of Gonzaga University’s School of Business but am excited to be a Husky as well. After a variety of professional experiences, I’m happy to be at UW in the Career and Internship Center. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, and traveling.
