Once you are logged in to your Career Account, you can schedule an appointment by clicking the Appointments tab on the left side panel.

Once you’ve selected the Appointments tab, you will see a drop down list of available appointment slots. Select the time and date that works best for you to book an appointment. You can also navigate to the following week using the > arrow next to the date.

  • After selecting the appointment time, click on the Book Appointment button in black.
  • In the next screen, select your preferred appointment type from the drop down menu.
  • Then, upload your resume if you haven’t done so already using the ‘Upload’ button.
  • Add notes for your coach explaining the nature of your appointment.
  • Hit the Book Appointment button to secure your appointment.

Once you have successfully booked your appointment, you will be able to see it visibly in the ‘Appointments’ section of your Career Account. Please keep in mind that you can only schedule one appointment at a time, therefore, you will not be able to see future appointments once you have booked your appointment. 

How to Cancel Your Appointment in 12Twenty

To cancel your appointment, go to the ‘Appointments’ tab and click on into your appointment by selecting the time slot that is posted as your appointment time. Select the three dots next to the X and then hit ‘Cancel Appointment.’ Another screen will pop up asking if you’re sure you want to cancel your appointment. Select ‘Yes, cancel it’ to confirm the cancellation. If you’d like to change your appointment details (i.e. the notes, upload a resume, or the appointment type) instead of hitting ‘Cancel Appointment’ select ‘Edit’ to make your changes and then ‘Save’ to confirm changes.
Once you have cancelled your appointment, you will be able to see other appointment options pop onto your screen. If you’d like to reschedule, select a new time slot that works for you and follow the process for scheduling appointments.
