By setting job and applicant preferences, you can easily filter and prioritize the most qualified candidates.
When you post a job to a school, you have the ability to define preferences so that your applicant pool represents the candidates you're interested in. When you are reviewing applicants, you will be able to easily view which candidates fully match your preferences and which do not. To learn how to post a job, refer to How to Post a Job.
Job Preferences Options:
- US Work Authorization: refers to whether the candidate is legally authorized to work in the US
- Graduation Date Range OR School Year
- if you add a preference for both Graduation Date Range AND School Year and filter to exclude students that do not match "school year or graduation date", this will exclude students who do not meet BOTH preferences selected.
- Minimum GPA
Note: all preferences above are optional and none of the preferences added will prevent students from applying to your job.
The Applicants tab will display all applicants who have applied to your job. You may use the filter toolbar on top of the page to view applicants that match any of the preferences specified in your job posting. To learn how to access your applicants, refer to Reviewing Applications in Handshake.
The Preferences column will display how many of your total preferences the applicant meets. Hover your mouse over the number value to understand which preferences the candidate meets and doesn't meet.
If the candidate meets all preferences specified, a green circle with a check mark will appear to the right of the number values.
You can edit your preferences on a job posting at any time by following the steps in How to Edit a Job Posting.
