Online Schedule Building

Once you register, you will get an email from Handshake allowing you to build your schedule. Ensure you have your entire team lined out, as you will only be able to set your line-up once.

You can construct your day with

One-on-One Appointments

  • 10 minutes
  • Student requirements can be set (major, school year, etc.)
  • Make yourself unavailable for times you don’t want to meet students (breaks, etc.)

Group Sessions

  • 30 minutes
  • Open to any students
  • Capped at 50 participants

We ran a test expo, here are some things we learned:

  • You are allowed to go over the ten minute time limit. If you think you will, make yourself unavailable every other time slot.
  • Students can sign up for an open time slot 5 minutes before it starts. A notification appears on your schedule home screen that your schedule has changed.
  • The group session defaults to whoever is making any noise. We recommend asking them to mute themselves until the Q & A.
  • Group sessions do not allow for virtual backgrounds.
