Managing Applicant Status

Tawnya -

You can change a student's application status to either Hired, Declined, or Reviewed by Accessing your Applicants and then:

    • Open dropdown menu under Status on desired applicant and select either Hired, Declined, or Reviewed. 
      • To automatically send applicants custom messages when you change their status, check out this article: Closing the Application Loop: Setting Messaging Preferences
      • An applicants status will automatically change to Reviewed once you download the documents they used to apply to the job posting. 
      • Keep in mind: Unless you have set up applicant messaging, changing an applicant's  status from pending to declined or hired will not send any notification to the applicant. However, the applicant will be able to check their status on their Handshake account and see that their status has changed. 

If the position has been filled by a means other than Handshake, you can edit the expiration of this job posting and set it to have expired the date of hire.
