The worst impression you can make is to not show up or call to cancel an interview.

If you do not attend your interview or cancel with a phone call the following will occur:

no show policy
No-Show Policy

You will receive an email from the Career Center requiring you to send a letter/email of apology to the recruiter within two days and a copy to this office

If you fail to do this you will be sent another email and your interviewing privileges will be temporarily suspended until you have met the requirements

The issue needs to be resolved inside of one week of the missed interview and after that you will need to meet with a career counselor to be reactivated in the eCompass system

Two no-shows will result in the loss of your on campus recruiting privileges, no exceptions will be made
