About Missing Applications

Zoë Fluger -

If you have received emails that students have applied to one of your postings, however they do not appear on the applicants page, you may want to double check the schools on your Favorites School List. Any schools that are not on this list will not display any information of corresponding activity on your Handshake pages. 

You can locate your list of Favorite Schools by clicking on Schools in the left hand navigation bar. 

If an applicant has applied from a school that is not on this Favorites list, they may have been removed as some point. No worries! You can easily add back any schools you previously had on your Favorites list by clicking on Your Employer's Schools tab towards the top of the page, searching for the Schools, and clicking Add to Favorites.

For example: You originally posted a job to MIT, and a student from MIT applied. However, at some point you removed that school from your Favorite Schools list. Now we can no longer see that applicant when viewing applications for that posting. To see the applicant, you would add MIT back to your Favorite Schools list. 

You can also easily switch between viewing data for just your schools on your Favorites List, or seeing data across all schools your Company is approved at by following the steps here: How to Toggle Between Seeing Your Schools and All Schools Approved At Your Company

The functionally behind this comes from the Choose Your Schools feature, which affects the way you and your co-workers may see jobs and applicants. You can read more in depth about this here: What is the Choose Your Schools Feature?
