Document Review Process

Upon uploading your documents to Handshake:

  • A staff member will review your documents and provide feedback based on industry standards
  • A label will be given to your documents; either ‘Approved’ or ‘Changes Required

Reviewal Considerations:

  • Priority is given to documents used for expiring Handshake positions
  • Documents do not require a review in order to apply for positions in Handshake
  • Contact Career Services if you need immediate feedback (see below)

IMPORTANT: To ensure documents are of competitive quality, have them critiqued by Career Services prior to uploading and applying for positions in Handshake.   Consider these resources to assist you in building or perfecting your documents:
