SCHEDULES HELP

SCHEDULE REQUESTS

WHAT IS A SCHEDULE REQUEST?

A Schedule Request, or just Request, is when you take action on a schedule. There are three types of requests: You 'ask' that your resume be considered for a future interview, you pick an available time slot or you RSVP to an event (orientation meeting, etc.)

All actions are requests until the final confirmation is given to you by Web Walk-Up.

TYPES OF SCHEDULES

The following are the different types of schedules you may see. Not all of these will necessarily be available to you or used by the office running this system. Check with that office for complete information about the types of schedules available to you.

PRE-SELECT (PRS)

Pre-selection refers to those schedules where the company reviews the student information before allowing the student to interview. Another name for this type of schedule is Prescreen. You request a consideration and are either accepted to interview or turned down by the company.

The following four types of Pre-select statuses are what you will see when Reviewing Interview Activity.

  • Pre-select Requested - Submitted a request to be interviewed.
  • Pre-select Accepted - Accepted by the company to interview.
  • Pre-select Accepted-Alternate - Accepted to interview but only after those with PRS-Accepted have all picked their times. This is comparable to an un-numbered waiting list.
  • Pre-select Rejected - Rejected by the company. Not allowed to interview.
  •  

    OPEN/FIRST COME-FIRST SERVED SCHEDULE REQUEST

    Open (or First Come-First Served) schedules are available to those students which meet a specific criteria as defined by the company. If you meet that criteria, the action you take is to choose a time slot.

    Select an interview time from a list by clicking on the time slot wanted. If that time is "grabbed" by another student, the 'Time Slot Stolen' message is displayed. You can pick another time slot.

    BID REQUEST

    There are actually two types of bidding (sometimes called Auction) schedules supported by 1stPlace!. They are Bid Points and Priority Cards.

    Web Walk-Up does not collect Bid or Priority requests but does display the results of the bid (on the schedule or waiting list) when reviewing interviewing activity. Web Walk-Up displays the following message for any Priority or Bid schedules:

    The schedule is currently open for collecting bid requests However, this system is not currently set up for web bid collection.

    EVENTS

    An Event is a type of schedule used to track RSVPs for a meeting. You can view and/or act upon an Event through Web Walk-Up.

    RSVP by clicking on the link for Attending. If not interested in attending, simply go back to the previous page.

    When Reviewing Interview Activity, you will see the Events (including Date & Time) for his/her RSVP.

    REVIEW INTERVIEWING ACTIVITY

    WHAT IS INTERVIEWING ACTIVITY?

    Interviewing Activity is information about the schedules for which you have asked to be considered (Pre-select), have an interview with or any other information relating to schedules and you.

    HOW DO I VIEW MY INTERVIEWING ACTIVITY?

    Select the link to review interviewing activity. This page will list the schedules for which you have taken action. The result of that action is also listed. That action can be:

  • Request Pre-select consideration
  • Awaiting Pre-select results
  • Pre-select accepted
  • Pre-select rejected
  • Pre-select accepted alternate
  • Bid submitted
  • Bid result (results of Sign-Up!)
  • On Schedule (date & time are listed)
  • On Waiting List (position on the waiting list is listed)
  •  

    VIEWING FUTURE SCHEDULES

    WHAT IS A FUTURE SCHEDULE?

    Web Walk-Up only displays schedules that have a date in the future. This means the date for the interview must be tomorrow or later.

    WHAT CAN I DO WHEN VIEWING SCHEDULES HERE?

    This is the VIEW ONLY section of Web Walk-Up. You can view any schedule in the future but can not act on the schedule from this option.

    HOW DO I VIEW THE SCHEDULE INFORMATION?

    To see the Future Schedules, click once on the link "Future Schedules". If an additional menu exists, click on the the item wanted for example, All Computer Science Schedules.

    The schedules that match the choice are then displayed. Click once on the link to the desired schedule. View the information about the schedule.


    JOBS

    WHAT JOBS ARE DISPLAYED?

    Any job, that the office running Web Walk-Up determines, is still available. This means that the job is not filled or past its application deadline.

    WHAT ARE "JOBS THAT MATCH MY QUALIFICATIONS"?

    The qualification you must match is the major. Your major must match one of the job's required majors in order for you to view it.

    WHAT ARE "JOBS BY OTHER QUALIFICATIONS"?

    Jobs By Other Qualifications simply means jobs sorted by other majors, part time or full time or any number of other ways. The office running Web Walk-Up determines the way the jobs are grouped. You can view any of these jobs regardless of your qualifications.

    HOW DO I VIEW THE JOBS?

    To view information about a particular job, click on the job wanted (the link) and Web Walk-Up displays that job's information.

    REFERRAL REQUEST

    Referral Request is only available if this feature is activated by the office running Web Walk-Up.

    WHAT IS A REFERRAL REQUEST?

    A Referral Request is where Web Walk-Up 'asks' you if you want your information submitted to the company for the job you are viewing.

    HOW DO I SUBMIT A REFERRAL REQUEST?

    On the page that contains the job description, there is an option to submit your information. Click on the link to submit your information. If you don't want your information submitted, simply ignore the link and continue viewing jobs.

    WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO SUBMIT A REFERRAL REQUEST?

    If you have submitted a Referral Request for a job, Web Walk-Up records this information. The office running this system is then able to produce a report of all students whom have requested referrals. The office then can send each student's information off to the appropriate company.


    REGISTRATION

    WHAT IS MY REGISTRATION DATA?

    Your Registration Data is the information you supplied to the office either via a paper form or via an electronic means, for example, Disc Resume Professional. This information is stored in a database and contains data such as; name, address, phone number, major, employment preferences, etc. You can view this information through Web Walk-Up.

    HOW DO I VIEW MY REGISTRATION DATA?

    Select 'Review Your Registration Data' link in Web Walk-Up. The information is split into two areas; demographic (name, address, etc.) and registration (major, degree, GPA, etc.).


    REFERRAL DATA

    WHAT IS REFERRAL DATA?

    Referral Data is the record of all of the times your information has been sent (referred) to a company. When you view this information through Web Walk-Up, you will see when you requested the referral and information about the company to which you were referred.

    HOW DO I KEEP TRACK OF MY REFERRAL REQUESTS?

    You should keep a record of your referral requests, however, if you do not have a written log, you can select the 'Review You Referral History' link in Web Walk-Up. This will provide a listing of all your referrals and information about the companies for follow up purposes.


    REGISTER

    FILL OUT REGISTRATION DATA

    The Registration Data section requires that you either fill in data or select from a list of choices when filling in the data entry fields.

    Move from field to field with the Tab key or by positioning your mouse cursor over the field and clicking once in that field.

    Once the cursor is in the appropriate field, you will either type your response, or select from the list of choices that automatically 'drops down' for you.

    The Registration Data consists of three sections:

    • Name and Address Section
    • Citizenship and Academic Information
    • Skills and Other Employment Qualifiers

     

    NAME AND ADDRESS

    The Name and Address section includes information that will be used on your resume. The fields that are NEVER used on your resume are: Social Security Number and Personal ID (PIN).

    You will select which address (or both) to include on your resume in the Resume Layout section.

    CITIZENSHIP AND ACADEMIC INFORMATION

    The Citizenship and Academic Information sections are used to help determine the jobs and schedules for which you are qualified. Be accurate and honest in your answers. The information you submit here is verified by the office and employers.

    PRIVACY

    Some of the data that is collected is to ensure the equitable serving of a diverse population. It is collected for statistical purposes only and is not released to employers, UNLESS YOU INDICATE THE INFORMATION DIRECTLY ON YOUR RESUME.

    This information is:

    • Social Security Number
    • Ethnicity
    • Gender
    • Date of Birth
    • Physically Challenged

     

    SKILLS AND OTHER EMPLOYMENT QUALIFIERS

    The Skills and Other Employment Qualifiers section lets the office staff best match your skills and qualifications with employers and jobs. This information is often included with your resume when being referred to employers.

    Remember, no list is complete. If you find that you have additional skills or qualifications not listed in this section, include it in your resume. You can also re-include the information you select here in your resume. This will reinforce what assets you will bring to any employer or job.


    SAVE DATA AND RETURN TO MENU

    You MUST save the data you enter by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on this link. Failure to do so will result in a loss of all information entered here!


    WEB RESUME

    COMPLETING A WEB RESUME

    You must complete the Web Resume (along with the Registration Data) to be able to view and be referred to jobs and to be able to get on the on-campus interview schedules.

    Is it very easy to complete a Web Resume. Simply fill out each section (see menu for section titles) as it pertains to you and be sure to save and preview. When you are satisfied with the resume, submit it for admission into the database.

    HINTS:

    • Change the title to one you prefer.
    • Leave the Title of Heading blank. No title will be included.
    • Leave an entire section blank. It will not be included in your final resume.
    • Personalize your resume by formatting sections as allowed (bulleted lists, two columns, etc.) in addition to the overall resume format.
    • Preview, Preview, Preview. At each addition of information and change of layout, preview your resume. This will help produce a quality final resume.
    • Use fields for information other than labeled, just leave the headings out, where possible. Then preview the results.
    • Make use of the Additional Information sections to extend either your Employment or Experience sections.
    • Change the order of your sections to make the information flow easily.

     

    OBJECTIVE SECTION

    Use this section to state your career goals and objectives. Keep is short and sweet. Usually a sentence or two will do the trick.

    Remember, save and return to the menu.

    EDUCATION SECTION

    Enter your education history here. You have three different education sections to list three different schools. No need to list anything before High School, but it is important to list any trade schools, secondary or higher schools. List the school where you are currently enrolled in the first block.

    Notice that the Significant Courses and Honors and Activities sections have special formatting options available. Try them out. Preview the resume to see how it looks.

    Remember, save and return to the menu.

    EMPLOYMENT SECTION

    This section is where you will enter your employment information. You only have three sections specifically for listing employers, however, you can use the Additional Information Sections to extend this.

    Notice the Responsibilities and Additional Information fields have formatting options. Try them out. Preview and see how the resume looks.

    Remember, save and return to the menu.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION SECTION

    The Additional Information page has three sections for listing any information not included in the Education or Employment sections. You can also use Additional Information as an extension of either the Employment or Education sections.

    Notice that the Description field has additional formatting options. Try them out. Preview your resume to see how it looks.

    Remember, save and return to the menu.

    REFERENCES

    The References section is used to note something on your resume about references being available. You do not include references with your resume, but you are expected to have a list of references with you at the interview. If you do not currently have a references, leave the Title of Heading and Description fields blank. If you do have references, enter a title and put a brief description such as:

  • References
  • Available Upon Request
  • Remember, save and return to the menu.

    RESUME LAYOUT

    You can select this option and change your formatting at any point in creating your Web Resume. Each option has a sample, but you will still want to preview your resume to see how it looks.

    You select the Resume Layout Options to apply those styles to the resume sections (Objective, Education, etc.). The options are applied to all sections. You can not choose one section with one layout and another section with another layout. That would not provide you with an appropriately professional resume.

    However, the name and address options are different from the resume section layout choices. You will select which address(es)) to include and how you want the name and address formatted. You can even select a line to separate your name from your address and your address from the rest of your resume.

    SCANNABLE RESUMES

    If you are going to want your resume to be scanned by the employer, then you will need to select Yes for this option. Please note that this WILL restrict your formatting ability. Bullets, lines, certain fonts, are some of the things that are not permitted for a resume designed for scanning. This is wholly due to the way the scanners operate. When a resume (or any document) is scanned, the software that is scanning it makes certain best guesses about what the letters or numbers are. To make the resume more readable by the scanner, those items that are problematic are not permitted.

    If you are wanting your resume to be scannable, please preview it AFTER selecting this option.

    PREVIEW YOUR RESUME

    You can and should preview your resume before submitting it. Preview it as often as you need. When you preview your resume, you will see all of the formatting options you selected and how the resume will look on the printed page. This is an approximation of how it will print since some variation will occur due to the printer you have.

    To preview your resume, return to the Registration Main Menu and select the [Preview_Your_Resume] link.

    SUBMIT DATA

    When you have completely verified your resume is complete and you want to submit it, return to the Registration Main Menu and select the 'SUBMIT REGISTRATION DATA' link.

    Your Registration Data must also be complete at this time. The software will verify that the required fields of the Registration Data are completed. If not, you will be reminded and asked to correct the problem now.

    After you have submitted your information, the office with which you are registering will verify the information and either accept the data or reject the data. If the data is rejected, you will be notified and given the opportunity to correct the problem. If accepted, you will be given the complete Web Walk-Up menu and be able to view Jobs and Schedules.
