Interview Attendance and Cancellation Policy

You should only submit applications to employers for whom you would consider working. If you are chosen for an on-campus interview, you must accept and attend the interview.  If you are not available to interview on the day or at the location an employer is scheduled to interview, do not submit an application to that employer.

If you are selected for an interview, you will receive an email from the Office of Career and Professional Development instructing you to select an interview time.  If you do not select an interview time within the allotted time period, the Office of Career and Professional Development will assign an interview time to you.  Even if this interview time conflicts with other commitments, you are responsible for attending your interview.

Should an unforeseen emergency preclude you from attending an interview, you must seek permission from the Office of Career and Professional Development to cancel your interview.  Emergency circumstances will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, however, non-refundable travel arrangements are not a valid excuse.  If Career and Professional Development agrees to excuse you from your interview, you must write the employer a letter of apology explaining your absence and submit a copy of this letter to the Office of Career and Professional Development within 48 hours of the scheduled interview. 

If you do not comply with this policy, you may lose the privilege of participating in on-campus recruiting or receive other appropriate consequences at the discretion of Career and Professional Development.
