Please inform us of any student who did not show up for a scheduled on-campus interview. We will follow up with the student and begin our Late Cancellation and No-Show Policy & Process. This excludes “Room Only” schedules.
Late cancellations or missed interviews are a hindrance to student success and leave a negative impact on Michigan State University and its relationships with employers. The following policy addresses this concern and the serious implications resulting from a late cancellation or a no-show.
Students registering and submitting resumes on Handshake certify that the information is truthful and accurate.
Michigan State University and the Broad College of Business understand that the recruiting process consists of stringent deadlines for both the employer and students. It is the University’s position that students make the best decisions when offered the opportunity to evaluate all of their options and seek appropriate counsel.
A job acceptance is a major commitment to a new employer. Students should only make this type of commitment if they intend to honor it. Reneging is accepting a job offer from a second company while declining an already accepted job offer from the first company. This can severely damage a person’s reputation, not only in the short term, but also for the duration of a career. Reneging also has negative implications on the university’s relationships with the affected employer and can affect opportunities for other MSU students. The university does not sanction a renege situation on students’ parts for any reason. Students are encouraged to carefully review the reneging policy before accepting any job offers.
Recruiters are obliged to behave in a respectful manner towards the Russell Palmer Career Management Center student assistants and staff, to help maintain a climate of friendliness and harmony, and to strictly refrain from any kind of discriminatory behavior, harassment or victimization.
All recruiters are expected to treat other visitors in the center as fellow professionals. It is important to respect others’ work and efforts.
All recruiters should treat the Palmer Center’s property, whether material or intangible, with respect and care. Palmer Center equipment must not be misused or used frivolously. When leaving a space, it is encouraged to leave things in a manner better than originally found.
Closing time is 5 p.m. Please be prepared to exit at this time. Most nights, our student assistants are closing the Palmer Center and need to leave to attend to their studies. We would like to be respectful of their time. If you need to debrief with your team, there are locations in the Broad College of Business that can be utilized after hours. Please inquire with the staff.
