Handshake automatically calculates an internal Trust Score for each employer on the platform based on a number of factors, detailed below.
This Trust Score is generated to help Career Services teams more easily gauge an Employer's general activity on Handshake, as well as determining which employers can proactively message students.
- Your Trust Score will remain N/A until you have completed some sort of activity on Handshake.
- This includes posting jobs, requesting events, registering for fairs, etc.
- While institution approvals/declines factor into the score, they will not generate the initial score.
Trust Scores are not visible to student accounts in Handshake.
- Your company's Trust Score updates on a nightly basis.
