We are currently testing out an integration with our friends at Handshake, a leading early career community. You can now opt-in to request a Handshake account from your Codecademy profile.
Once you opt-in to request a Handshake account, you’ll receive an email message with an activation link. Handshake will send this email to the email address you use for your Codecademy account. You should receive it within 24–48 hours. This email will come from email@example.com. It will look like this:
Click the "CLAIM MY ACCOUNT" link and you will be taken to the sign in page where you will enter the email address you use for your Codecademy account.
Enter your email. Click "Next" and you will receive an email message titled "Request to Set Password." Follow the link in this email, establish your password. You may use any password you like. Once you set up your password, log into your new Handshake account using your email address and password.
You will then be prompted to set up your Handshake profile by selecting your education level, interests, job experience, and skills.
If you have been waiting on your invitation from Handshake for over 72 hours, check your spam in case it accidentally ended up there.
You can also test to see if your account has already been created by navigating to https://codecademy.joinhandshake.com/login and entering the email address associated with your Codecademy account. If your account has been set up, you'll be prompted to establish a password.
