Applicant Tracking Systems

Zoë Fluger -


When a student clicks apply on the job we make a record in the system, but then present them with your ATS link. The reason we add that record in the system is in case they drop off at all - either by not following your link or dropping off somewhere during the ATS process, you can still find at least those who attempted to apply via the application record made in Handshake.

In short, the student will need to apply through Handshake first, and then they will be presented with a message that prompts them to follow your link or additional instructions: 



They will need to finish their application by clicking on your link or following your instructions given. Sometimes students choose to not finish their applications by following this step, or they may save it for later and then forget to apply. We would also recommend clearly stating in your job description that students may not be considered unless they apply to your link for additional awareness.
