You may find yourself working with employers who are unsure of how to utilize Handshake for job postings. In rare instances or high stress instances, it may be necessary to provide direct support to an employer for a job posting, editing, and more. In these cases, feel free to make adjustments and recommendations as per Handshake Help. When a roadblock arises and you are unable to work on behalf of an employer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to verify any issues you may have.
While it is helpful to provide support in high stress instances, as a default, career practitioners should encourage employers and their respective university relationship managers or direct contacts to take ownership of their Handshake profiles at all levels, which includes updating and posting their own jobs. This supports employers becoming comfortable with engaging with Handshake for not only our University, but all others they may work with. There are also instances in which an Employer may have their settings set to blocking career practitioners from making changes to their job postings.
Employers can be directed to:
Job approvals in Handshake are not 'owned' by any single career practitioner. At this time, it is imperative there is a group effort to support the timeliness of job approvals into the Syracuse University instance of Handshake. As such, each School or College is expected to participate in a timely approach to approving Jobs relevant to their respective departments. This includes, communicating with employers as needed for job posting corrections, edits, and more. At no one time should there be a reliance on a single entity to approve jobs at the University level.
To expedite this process, each career practitioner should be equipped to save job filters relevant to their scope and make this their default job search filter. Please refer to Job Postings Page Overview and Create a Saved Search for more support on this.
Central Career Services will provide 'safety net' support for Job approvals to ensure timely approvals of relevant jobs. However, this workflow will change by December 2022 during the final phase of the Signal Boosting release from Handshake. See Employers for more information.
Auto-Approvals for Jobs
When Processing Job Posting Requests, as needed, consistent and trusted employers may be approved for "auto-approval" in Handshake. This may be done to support workflow of our various career practitioners. This especially holds true when some employers may post Jobs to Handshake on a consistent or at an extremely high-rate. However, be advised, this may work against your workflows if there are high turnover rates of your university-relations partners with employers who may have a different job posting etiquette. It is up to each employer relationship career practitioner to make the best informed decision they can make in collaboration with their direct supervisor and/or relevant support teams such as the Employer Resource Group.
As of 9/2022, Job Auto-Approvals are set to ON.
Jobs in Handshake can be promoted quite a few ways.
Default Search Filters
We’ll use the Jobs tab for this example. This is the same process for this section as well.
