If you applied for a job on Handshake and have documents attached to an application, you can change the document or delete it as long as the application hasn't closed.
To learn more about managing your documents associated with an application, click on the expandable headers.
Change an existing document associated with an application
If you made edits to an existing document (i.e., CV or cover letter) outside of Handshake, the edits/updates won't be reflected on the document you previously uploaded to your account, or submitted with your application.
Note: edits to the fields within Handshake (i.e. name, description) will be reflected on your application and viewable to the employer.
To change your document associated with an application, you'll need to do the following:
1. Upload your new/updated document to Handshake.
2. Withdraw your current application from the job.
3. Re-apply for the job with your new/updated document!
Important: double-check the job's expiration date has not passed. You'll only be able to re-apply if the job has not yet expired!
For more information on uploading a new document, refer to How to Upload a New Document.
To withdraw an application in Handshake, refer to Withdraw an Application in Handshake.
Delete an existing document associated with an application
Deleting a document from your profile does not delete it from existing job applications.
If you delete a document that is connected to a job application, this acts like a soft delete, which only prevents it from being attached to future applications.
To remove a document from an application, you'll need to withdraw your application.
For outlined instructions on how to withdraw an application in Handshake, refer to Withdraw an Application in Handshake.
If you'd like to re-apply for the job with a different document, you can do so as long as the job's expiration date has not passed.
