If you're not able to message students in Handshake from Search Students or student profiles, it's most likely due to your current recruiting activity status at institutions you're connected with.
To proactively message students, Core and Handshake Plus employers must have at least one approved or expired job posting at the institution at which the student(s) attends.
- For additional details, refer to How to Send a Student a Message.
