Career Services Student Information
Student Policies & Procedures
Accepting a Job or Internship Offer
As soon as you accept one offer (either full-time or an internship) you should withdraw any outstanding applications from other employers immediately. If you are invited to an interview after you have accepted an offer either verbally or in writing, you must decline the interview and inform the employer that you have accepted a position with another company/agency/firm. To do otherwise is a serious breach of ethics.
Unprofessional Communication Policy
Unprofessional or inappropriate communication via email or in-person will not be tolerated by the School of Business. Students who have been found to use unprofessional or inappropriate communication with an employer, academic advisor, faculty, or staff member may be reported to Career Services; violators will be immediately blocked from Handshake. Students found in violation of this policy will have 5 business days to contact Kerry Willigan, Director of Career Services, to rectify the situation.
Appointment No Show & Late Cancellation Policy
A combination of 3 "Same Day Cancellations" or "No Shows" will result in the inability to make appointments with School of Business Career Services staff for the remainder of the semester in which the violations occur.
Handshake Application Policy
- JOB ID # listed in Handshake (you may send more than one).
- A copy of your transcript from any previous institutions.
- If you are not using your default resume, please indicate which document you prefer to submit to the employer.
On-Campus Interviewing No Show & Late Cancellation Policy
Internship or Full-Time Job Offer Renege Policy
Reneging on an offer with an employer will result in being blocked from HireMason and the On-Campus Interviewing program. To renege is to go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract. In this context you have verbally or contractually agreed to commit to a job or internship offer and then withdrew. In order to regain access to Handshake you must contact Kerry Willigan, Director of Career Services, within 5 business days of being notified to rectify the situation.
