When you sign up for a Handshake account, some notifications are enabled by default to ensure you don't miss out on any key information.
Emails generated from institutions, such as information about upcoming career fairs, events, interview schedule availability, invoices, etc., are sent regardless of preference in Handshake.
If you'd like to adjust your Handshake notification preferences, you may do so at any time. To review settings or make changes, click on your name in the top right of Handshake, then click on User Settings.
From the menu on the left of the page, select Notification Preferences:

- Email: will send you an email to the address on file to alert you of the information
