  • identifier
    • This cannot be the username (unless the username is the email address)
    • This is the student's email address
    • If the account (email address) is not in Handshake, the row will be skipped

    • User
  • user_type 
    • Students
  • name
    • Name of the Career Interest to assign.


Important notes:

  • Name - only accepts a single value at this time. To add multiple interests to the same user, multiple rows are necessary in the csv.
  • Name - if the name provided does not exist as a current career interest option, it will be created for the school.
  • If the user is already assigned to a career interest, it will pass through as successful.
