Product Announcement—May 6, 2021
For Career Services…
DEI Report Templates
We just released 14 new saved DEI report templates that your team can use to analyze student engagement gaps across demographics like gender, race and ethnicity.
Mobile App Homescreen
Earlier this spring, we experimented with removing the “navigation cards” from the top of the screen on our mobile apps—students can already use the bottom toolbar to navigate the app, so the cards took up space unnecessarily. Removing those navigation cards led to a positive uptick in students tapping to view jobs and events. Thus, we’ve rolled out the new design to all mobile users.
Ambassador Campaign Notification Email
We’ve updated the notification email students receive when they get a message from a premium employer that includes an ambassador the student can connect with. The new design has led to an increase in the percentage of students clicking the button to message an ambassador.
Sharing FDS Outcome to Profile
Students now see the option opt out of sharing their reported work, volunteer, or fellowship experience when filling out the first destination survey.
For Career Services...
Alumni Hub Beta
We’re developing a new feature that helps you build, track, and nurture relationships with your most important alumni contacts. Centralizing key data about employer users who attended your institution, Alumni Hub acts as a jumping-off point for engaging your alumni-turned-employer partners and unlocking unique opportunities for your students. Check out an early mockup (subject to change) below.
- We’re planning a beta release of this feature later in the spring. If you’re interested in participating, please fill out this form. We’ll notify users selected for the beta in the coming weeks.
Scheduled Reports to S3
Later this spring, you’ll be able to send scheduled reports (and dashboards) to S3 endpoints. This will expand your team’s options for sharing Handshake data with external platforms.
Later this spring, we’ll update the student interface to make it easier to navigate and call students' attention to important actions they can take to enhance their job search experience. Check out an early mockup (subject to change) of the new student homepage below.
- Note: We plan to use the top section of the homepage to feature a variety of tasks related to updating profile information and connecting with employers.
Job Editing Opt Out
To help a small handful of employers with strict security standards around job postings, we are introducing the option for employers to turn off career services job editing permissions. If an employer opts out, only users associated with their company account can create, edit, and clone jobs.
- Regardless of whether an employer has opted out, schools will always be able to edit label and college requirements, apply and expiration dates, and the “interested in interviewing” checkbox.
