- Register: In order to participate in the Career Center activities/programs, students must register with NACELink.
- Attend: Students shall attend a minimum of three workshops/seminars presented by the Career Center during each semester. For each program attended, a certificate of achievement will be placed in a student’s Career Center file, which employers may view. Students will be responsible for providing a copy of their certificate to the Career Center for placement in their file.
- Interview: Students may sign up for interviews in the Career Center and interview with employers they are interested in working for and whose eligibility requirements they meet. Students should not participate in “practice interviews” with companies in which they are not interested—it is misleading to employers and may cost an interested student an interview slot.
- Employment Decision: Do not keep employers hanging. Communicate acceptance or refusal of a job offer as promptly as possible.
- Accept a Job Offer in Good Faith: When accepting an offer, a student should have every intention of honoring that commitment. Accepting an offer while hoping for another offer is misleading to the employer and may restrict opportunities for others who are genuinely interested in the employer.
- Withdraw From Recruiting When Job Search Is Complete: Once a student accepts an offer or decides to pursue graduate school or professional studies, he or she should notify the Career Center and withdraw from interviewing immediately. Students should also inform potential employers of their decision. This may leave the door open for future employment opportunities.
- Reimbursement: When appropriate, students can claim reimbursement from companies for expenses they have incurred in the recruitment process. Requests should be only for reasonable and legitimate expenses.
- Career Success: Success depends primarily upon the information a student obtains. Students should make informed choices about their futures and take responsibility for acquiring information about career opportunities, organizations, and any other information that may influence a career choice.
