Missing the Career Centre option on the left navigation bar?
If you don't have Career Centre as an option on the left navigation bar, it means your institution doesn't currently partner with Handshake (yet!) If you're enjoying your experience on Handshake, feel free to encourage your career centre to formally partner with us and we can unlock additional benefits for you and your institution!
