When will my job be approved?

We have a team of career services staff that handles reviewing and approving all job postings on a weekly basis.  

If your request is not completed within this time, please log into Handshake to see if you have notifications or questions about your registration. If you have concerns with your job not being approved please reach out via the comments section within your posting.  

Employers are approved more quickly if their profile is complete, the contact information is valid, and their website clearly shows they offer jobs requiring college degrees or career-oriented internships or co-ops.

Why was I or my job declined?

College of Technology has a rigorous approval process and high standards for employers and jobs presented to our students in Handshake. Your trust score, website, email, and physical address are all reviewed to ensure the information is accurate. We also only accept positions that require the student to be degree seeking. These are just a few of the standards that must be met to be approved to recruit with our students.  

If you have concerns with your job not being approved please reach out via the comments section within your posting.
