Jobs in Handshake have two IDs: the Job ID and the Posting ID. The job ID is connected to the job, which allows it to be shared across Handshake, and the posting ID is what connects the job to an institution. An institution will approve a posting (posting ID) that is connected to the job (job ID).
In general, you'll see the job ID across Handshake, but you'll be able to see the posting ID if you pull a report in Insights. In the example below, the far right column is the posting ID, which is specific to your institution.
