With Handshake, it's easy to keep in touch with your contacts via Targeted Emails.
You can select contacts as recipients via two methods:
- after composing a new Targeted Email, when selecting recipients
- described in Targeted Emails: Creating and Sending
- from the Contacts page
- described in this article
Note: If you'd like to initiate an email to job creators or contacts specifically, refer to How to Send an Email to Job Contacts.
How to Email Contacts in Handshake from the Contacts page
1. Click Contacts from the left navigation bar, under the "Relationships" heading.
2. Put a check next to the desired contacts listed on this page. Use the filters or All filters above the contacts list to narrow down the displayed results.
3. Click the ellipsis button in the right corner of the contacts list and select Draft Targeted Email.
4. A confirmation will pop up with the number of selected contacts. Click the blue button Go to Targeted Emails to proceed.
5. This will open a new Targeted Email draft. Proceed through the steps of creating and sending a Targeted Email, as described in Targeted Emails: Creating and Sending.
Note: if you add an Event or Career Fair that’s listed as “hidden” or “invite-only” via the Handshake Content option, this will allow students and employers to bypass those settings and view/register as if they had the public preview link.
6. The recipients tab will display the preselected contact email addresses–click Next to finalize the details and send.
