When you sign up for a Handshake account, some notifications are enabled by default to ensure you don't miss out on any key information.
Emails generated from schools, such as information about upcoming career fairs, events, interview schedule availability, invoices, etc., are sent regardless of preference in Handshake.
If you'd like to adjust your Handshake notification preferences, you may do so at any time.
To review settings or make changes, click on your name in the upper-right corner of Handshake, then click on User Settings.
From the menu on the left of the page, click Notification Preferences.
The below images depict the default notification settings within Handshake; items with a green check are enabled by default when your account is created. To change the notification setting, check or uncheck items as desired. Changes are saved immediately.
- Email: an email is sent to the address on file to alert you of the information
- Notification: a notification populates in Handshake to alert you of the information (accessible by clicking the globe/world icon in the upper-right corner of the page, to the left of your name)
