We understand how important it is to be able to manage your institution connections efficiently, as well as discover new universities to connect with.
We are making it easier than ever to view and manage your selected institutions (now, your Favourites!) through additional filters viewable on the left of the Institutions page:
Permission to recruit at each institution is maintained at a company-to-institution level. This means:
- If you add an institution to your Favourites list that your company is already approved at, you'll automatically be able to recruit there.
- If you add an institution your company has never requested to recruit at before, an approval request will go out to that institution. You will need to wait until you are approved by the institution to recruit there.
- If your company has already been declined at an institution, you will not be able to recruit there unless the institution changes your status to approved.
How to Remove Institutions
- You can also now more easily remove institutions from your favourites list as needed through a bulk action. Simply click the checkbox to the left of the institution name, then click on Remove Selected in the top right of that area:
- You’ll see a confirmation pop-up for the action, depending on how many institutions were selected:
Keep in mind, this will only affect your personal user account. Your employer (company profile) will still remain approved at this institution.
How to view all approved institutions
You’ll also notice a tab for 'Your Employer’s Institutions' at the top of this page. This will include all institutions that your company is approved at, as well as provide the option to add more institutions to your favourites.
- You can add institutions one at a time by clicking on Add To Favourites to the far right of the institution name, or you can add multiple institutions by selecting the checkbox to the left of the institution name, then clicking Add to Favourites in the top right:
How to request to connect with more institutions
If you’d like to connect with more institutions on Handshake, you’ll be able to click More Institutions on Handshake, the third tab at the top of this page. On this tab, you’ll also be able to see institutions that are currently pending connection with your company, as well as any institutions that have previously declined to connect.
- To request a new institution, simply click on the grey Request button to the far right of the school name:
- When you select request, you’ll see a confirmation popup, and you’ll need to click on the green “Request” button to complete the request:
View Comment History:
In the event that there are comments left either by you or Career Services, you’ll be able to see the count of comments on any of these tabs.
- Simply click directly on the comment count to load the institution page and see the comment history:
