Before this release, each employer had the ability to host only one round of interviews per day, with one interview happening at any given time. Now, our creation of multiple time blocks allows for an employer to request multiple schedules per job. This means that each employer can have co-occurring interviews paving way for our most efficient interview process yet. Let's take a look at how to set this up:

When creating the event, Universities can control whether or not the employer gets the option to create multiple time blocks as a part of step 4:

If this setting is turned to "Enabled", when an employer registers for the event and creates a new job, the will see the option to request multiple schedules for that job:

Employers also have the ability to go back into their posted job and change the number of schedules they've requested. They have the ability to do so until employer registration closes:

The university will be able to see that the employer has multiple schedules enabled when they goto assign time blocks:

However, students applying to this job will only see one posting. When the auto-scheduler is run, it will automatically distribute applicants between all schedules.

After the scheduler is run, the university can view the schedules on a per-schedule basis in the event view:

We created this update to ensure that larger employers with multiple divisions are able to have separate schedules instead of needing to register as separate employers. Additionally, bigger employers with multiple interviewers are able to interview candidates at the same time.

💡This release also includes updated terminology

In pre-select events, everything was referred to as a 'schedule'. Now, an employer creates a job and requests a schedule or schedules for that job. The end result is a schedule, on which they interview students for a specific job.
