To increase your Trust Score in Handshake, you can proactively focus on your activities in Handshake, company profile completeness, and approvals from institutions.
For a breakdown of Trust Score functionality, refer to What is a Trust Score?
To improve your activity level, we recommend doing things such as:
- posting jobs
- registering for in-person career fairs or registering for virtual fairs
- requesting events
- posting on campus interviews
Company Profile Completeness
The best way to improve this factor is to make sure you have full, complete, and matching information on your company profile.
Examples of this include:
- a company email domain that matches your company's site/name
- a working website that matches your company
- forward facing contact information (email, phone number, etc)
If you're the owner of your company's profile, you can edit this information at any time by following the steps in How to Edit Your Company Settings.
Each institution is independently responsible for approving, declining, and giving roles to their employers, and every institution has different deciding factors when selecting which employers to connect with.
If you have a number of institution declines, we recommend that you reach out directly to the Career Services centre at those institutions to request more information on the decline, and if appropriate, to be reconsidered for approval.
Reaching out directly to the Career Services office will open lines of communication between your company and the institution. They can share information about their decision, and you may be able to provide them any missing information that they may need to approve you with them on Handshake.
Use the steps in Declined by an Institution to communicate with their team!
