Employers can view student profiles in Handshake, as long as their company is approved to recruit at the student's institution, and the student has opted into sharing their profile with employers.
For more information on connecting with institutions, refer to Institution Network Management.
Accessing student profiles
Student profiles can be accessed in Applications, Event or Fair RSVPs and on the Search Students or Your Candidates page. To view a student profile, click the hyperlinked name of the student.
Note: if the student marked their profile as private, their name will be hyperlinked. But if you click on it, an error message will appear saying, "This user's profile is private."
For more information on messaging applicants with a private profile, refer to Messaging Applicants.
Student profiles display standard information that may be either added by the student, or synced into Handshake via their institution. All employers (that are approved at the institution) will be able to view the information entered in each field:
- Education: Institution Name, Level of Study, Graduation Date, Course(s), College
- Personal Information: Pronouns*
- *Pronouns is an optional sharing setting for students - viewable only if the student opts into sharing their pronouns with employers.
- Work Experience: Employer name, Job Title, Dates of employment, Location
- Organisations / Extracurriculars
- Get To Know Me: A brief introduction from the student
Handshake Premium partners will also have access to Candidate Touchpoints, highlighted in the student's profile.
Premium features are for Handshake Premium accounts only. For more information, please check out this resource.
The Candidate Touchpoints section provides the following details:
- Any messages the student has already received from your employer.
- Events or fairs the student has RSVP'd or checked into with your company.
- Any jobs the student has applied for at your company.
