Can I filter to view only the Students that I work with in my Career Center?

 

While students can filter by Career Center, the information they see in Handshake is available across the entire school instance- not just limited to a particular office. However, you can set particular filters for segments of the student population. 

Select Manage on the left navigation bar:

Search for students using the filters at the top of the screen. If you only work with students in a particular college or major, filter to just that group of students and create a saved search for those students. Learn more about Saved Searches here.

Depending on your school setup, you might want to consider using labels to identify certain student populations. Explore this article on labels for more information.

Pro tip: Check with your university success manager for best practices or tips as you consider building out labels and filters for your entire school, as well as your individual Career Center.
