How do I cancel an interview schedule?


Joe Wyzgoski -

If you would like to cancel an upcoming interview on campus, we recommend that you change the status of the interview to cancelled. This offers you the ability to report on cancelled interviews and notify students and employers about the cancellation.

You can cancel an interview two ways in Handshake: 

From the Interviews Overview Page

  1. Click Interviews on the left navigation bar
  2. Find the interview you are interested in canceling
  3. Click the arrow next to the status of the interview and select Cancel
  4. This will open your notification options, choose who you would like to notify and enter a custom message to be sent in the cancellation email (checking Notify Employers will send an email to all employer contacts listed on the interview schedule - second screenshot below):


  5. Click Confirm Cancellation when you are ready to send the notifications out
  6. The status of the interview will change to Cancelled when you are finished

Tip: Use the 'Other' filter to view all cancelled/declined interview schedules




From the Interviews Details Page

  1. Click on an interview schedule
  2. Click the arrow in the approval window
