Handshake knows that students don’t have a lot of time, and the time that is available needs to be spent intentionally. Quick Apply reduces time spent on the application process by making it easier for students to focus on jobs that don’t require a lot of effort.

Employer's can select candidate preferences per job, and preference matching is based on information in your Handshake profile. If you should be matching, learn how to make updates:
Some institutions that partner with Handshake choose to review uploaded CVs. Depending on your institution's preferences, documents that aren't approved may prevent the application from being fully submitted.
Here's an example of how this can appear in Handshake:
Document feedback and review preferences are customisable per institution, so we recommend contacting the career centre directly to learn more about the selected preferences.
