How to Create a New Company Profile

Rob Midson -

This article will teach you how to create an effective profile for your company.  If you have not registered for Handshake yet, you’ll need to create a user account before you can complete the following steps. To learn more about how to create a user account, please read How do I create a user account?   

 If your company already has a Handshake profile, but needs to create additional profiles for different locations or divisions, please contact our Support Team

Your account profile is an important tool because it gives you the opportunity to tell students about your company, and why they’d want to work there!

Once you have logged in, start by using this form to look for your company to confirm whether or not you already have a profile.
 

If your company doesn’t appear in the search results, click the Create Company Profile button.

If you are not seeing the Create New Company button, please contact Support to have them open a space for you to create a new company with your domain. 

 

**Helpful tip before you begin: We recommend first selecting keep me logged in when logging into Handshake before you begin creating a new company profile. If this is not selected, it is likely that the page will time out, and clicking Create New Company at the end will not be responsive, which will result in logging out and having to start over. 
 
You will be taken to a page where you can add a company logo and a company branding image:
 

 
To add your company’s logo:

  1. Click Add a logo.
  2. Click Upload New Image.
  3. Select the logo image you’d like to use from your computer files. Please keep in mind that a 1:1 (width to height) ratio is best for your logo with a minimum size of 150x150 and maximum size of 400x400.
  4. Click Select image.
  5. Click Save.

To add your company’s branding image:

  1. Click Add a branding image.
  2. Click Upload New Image.
  3. Select the logo image you’d like to use from your computer files. Please keep in mind that a ratio between 4:1 and 5:1 (width to height) is best for your branding image with a size size minimum of 1200x300 and a size maximum of 2000x500.
  4. Click Select image.
  5. Click Save.

Scroll down to the area of the page where you can add basic information about your company:
 
1. Complete your company’s information

  • Required: Company name, Industry, Website, Location, Description, and Company Size.
  • Additional options include:
    • Company Logo, Banner Image, and Public Email address. 

Tip: You can go back and edit your company information at any time. Read how here: How do I edit my company profile? 

2. Click Create New Company when you are finished inputting your company information. You will then be taken to the Connect with Schools page (see point #3 on this article for more info) to select which schools you'd like to connect with.
