Missed Interview Policy
It is fully expected that all students will follow good business practice and responsibly keep every interview appointment scheduled. Late cancellations as well as missed interview appointments inconvenience employers and penalize your classmates.
To cancel an interview, contact Pam Jehner, the MBA Placement and Career Center’s Recruiting Manager, either by phone (517/432-3681) or in person (211 Eppley Center),
at least two full business days prior to your interview date.
If you cancel your interview at the PCC less than two full business days prior to your scheduled date, we have insufficient time to contact and receive responses from other students desiring an interview opportunity.
Students who cancel less than two days in advance or miss an interview appointment are considered “no-shows.” A “no-show” status is excused only under extenuating circumstances. To request to be excused, follow the instructions below:
ØSchedule an appointment with the PCC Director to discuss the reasons for your missed interview.
ØProvide the Director with documentation to support your reasons (i.e., medical excuse, car towing receipt, etc.)
ØSubmit to the Director a letter of apology addressed to the employer, along with a stamped envelope for mailing by the PCC after approval from the Director.
An unexcused “no-show” will result in your access to on-campus interviews being limited to only those companies preselecting you.
If you have any questions regarding this policy or wish to schedule an appointment with the Director, please contact the MBA PCC at 517/432-3626.
When you accept a job, you make a major commitment to your new employer. Such a commitment should be made only if you intend to honor it. To continue discussions with other potential employers once you accept an offer is totally inappropriate. And to accept an offer but later reject it, if you receive a “better” offer (reneging), is unethical.
Reneging can severely tarnish your reputation, not only in the short-term, but also for the duration of your career. Reneging also creates an obstacle in the PCC’s efforts to maintain positive relationships between corporate recruiters and the Broad School. In essence, your reneging hurts the school’s reputation as well as your own. The MBA Placement and Career Center cannot sanction a renege on your part for any reason.
You can avoid a reneging situation by carefully managing your entire job-search process. Please see a PCC staff member for guidance.
If you renege on a full-time offer, you will not be allowed to use alumni services provided by the PCC. If you renege on an internship offer, you will have access to on-campus interviews only if preselected by companies.
Please note that this policy deals with you reneging on your commitment to a company. It does not address a company revoking its commitment to you. Please see a PCC staff member if faced with such a situation.
