When you create a new employer account in Handshake, you will need to connect to a company profile. How you connect with the company profile determines the default role your account is assigned:
- If you connect with an existing company profile, your employer role will be Recruiter. This role enables you to request to connect with schools, create jobs, events, register for fairs, and more.
- Sign up with your company's email address! Handshake recognizes corporate domains and helps you connect with existing company profiles set up with the same email domain.
- If your company doesn't have a dedicated domain, learn more about Registering for an Employer Account with a Generic Email Address.
- If you create a new company profile, your employer role will be Owner. Owners have all of the same abilities as Recruiters, plus the responsibility of managing the company profile in Handshake.
For a breakdown of what each role has access to, refer to Employer Roles and Admin Tools.
