How to 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 

 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 the small conversation bubbles next to the student's name you'd like to reach out to

  2. Or, Click on their name from the search results
