What happens when I decline applicants?

Zoë Fluger -

Do students receive a notification when you decline their application to one of your job postings?

They do not! Students will not receive any notifications if their application has been declined on Handshake. However, they will be able to log into their account, view their applications, and see that their status has changed from Pending to Declined. 

Note: If the applicant is part of an Interview Schedule however and is declined, they will receive a notification that they have been declined.
