How do I send a student a message?

Zoë Fluger -

Would you like to connect with a student about a possible job or internship at your company? To find students view: How do I search for students 

Employers who are not subscribed to Handshake's Employer Premium Package will be limited to 100 total messages per company, per semester. This limit does not apply to job applicants; messaging of applicants is unlimited. 

 Troubleshooting Note: New employers with a Trust Score of N/A or lower than 80 will not be able to message students. This is to ensure that students are contacted by trusted employers via Handshake. You can read more here: Why Can't I Message Students?

Once you are ready to message a student:

  1. Click on their name from the search results
  2. Scroll down to the actions section of the student profile
  3. Click Send a Message
  4. Format your message, add images or links to a posting at your company and click Send when you are ready!

To view your sent messages click the Message icon located in the stop search bar.
