First violation of the No Show & Cancellation Policy:
Students/Alumni will be given 24 hours following the scheduled "event"
(on-campus interview, mock-interview, externship) date to write a letter of apology and explanation to the employer/mock
interviewer as appropriate. Students/Alumni must email this directly to the employer/mock
interviewer using the subject line “letter of apology/explanation” and must copy
email@example.com in the Career Center. If preferred, students/alumni can submit two copies of this letter to
the Recruiting Coordinator in the Career Center with a stamped envelope that is addressed to the employer/mentor/mock
interviewer contact. If no letter has been written within 24 hours,
the student/alumni Handshake account access will be blocked until the letter is
provided. A visible no show label will also be applied to the student/alumni
account (viewable to students and staff only - not employers) until the letter
has been provided.
* If a student/alumni Handshake account is set to archived status, the student will not be permitted to participate in any previously scheduled or upcoming on-campus interviews, mock interviews or externships until the account is returned to active status.
