If you're the Owner of your company's profile on Handshake, you can easily edit your company's information at any time by following the steps below.
Note: only the company Owner or Admin will have access to Company Settings.
From any page in Handshake, click on your name in the upper-right corner of the screen and click on Company Settings.
You can also get there by clicking on Company Profile in the left navigation bar and clicking on Edit in the upper-right of the page.
You'll be able to navigate through the menu on the left of this page, detailed below.
Once you have made the desired changes on a page, click on Update Employer or Save (as appropriate) at the bottom of each page changed to save.
Please note that any information you edit here will also reflect across all users connected to your company profile.
The company's Details page will load by default, where you can edit any of the information pertaining to your Company's profile.
This page includes required* and optional specifics about your company, including:
- For a full list of industries in Handshake, refer to Employer Industry Name List.
- Auto Approve Staff
- This option will only appear if there is only one company profile tied to your email domain in Handshake. If there is more than one company profile, you will not have this option.
- Duns number
- Private Phone
- Institution Size
- Institution Type
- Logo and Banner
Pro Tip: If uploading/editing your company's logo or banner, wait about ~30 seconds to ensure your photo was fully uploaded before clicking on Update Employer.
If your company doesn't have any attachments uploaded yet, this page will be blank when you click Attachments.
To add a new attachment, click the tab New Attachment in the upper-right corner of the page.
Fill in the public name of the document and click Choose File to select a file from your computer, then click Create Attachment to save changes.
When the attachment has saved, the page will refresh with a confirmation that the attachment was successfully created and the upload is processing. Refresh the page to check the status.
When the upload has completed, the attachment will be listed with the public name, time created, and the creator's name. Click Edit or Download to the far right of the attachment to edit the name or document or download the file.
On this page, you can add or manage existing divisions within your company profile (these can be attached to jobs, interview schedules, or fair registrations).
For more information on adding divisions, please see How to Add Divisions to Your Company.
This page displays a list of contacts connected to your company in Handshake, regardless of user status.
Click Add Contact in the upper-right corner of the page to create a new contact entry (for example, someone that should receive applicant packages but doesn't necessarily need a Handshake user account).
Click Edit to the far right of a contact entry name to edit details for that contact. If the individual has a Handshake account, these changes will not change the details on their profile.
Labels provide a convenient way to help organise your student engagement workflows. Previously created labels will be listed on the page.
To add a new label, click the button Create New Label, toward the top middle of the page. In the popup that loads, enter the desired label name, then click Create.
To edit an existing label, click the three hashmarks to the far right of the label name, then click Edit Label. You can update the name of the label or mark it as Archived.
