When a job post is created in Handshake, there's an option to add Applicant Packages recipients within the job postings Preferences.
Depending on the settings selected within the job posting, the recipient will receive Applicant information directly to their email in the following ways:
- In the form of a summary of all applicants once your job expires
- Every time a student applies
- all applicants regardless of preferences matching
- if they match all your preferences
Example email of an Applicant Package sent after a student applies:
Title: Application package for [JOB TITLE]

To: [RECIPIENTS EMAIL ADDRESS]
Body: "New application for [JOB TITLE]
