Schedule a Meeting through Handshake

To schedule a meeting with PGP through Handshake, go to https://app.joinhandshake.com/stu/appointments or navigate to 'Career Center' -> 'Appointments' and select 'Schedule a New Appointment'. Follow the prompts to choose your school year and select what type of meeting you want to schedule. If you are unsure what to choose, you can always select the general 'PGP Advice' appointment.

Once you've filled out the appointment information and scheduled the appointment, the status of your appointment will be 'Pending' until the appointment staff member confirms the appointment. You'll receive an email notification when the appointment is approved and a reminder email a day before the appointment. If we need to cancel an appointment or can't approve an appointment for any reason, you'll receive an email notification from Handshake to reschedule. Unless that happens you can assume your appointment is happening, even if the status is still pending.
