Professional Expectations

Career Services is committed to begin its sponsored events, seminars and workshops at the scheduled time to demonstrate a level of respect for our guests and participants’ time and resources. Moreover, individuals who work for their employers travel to campus to interview students from various locations throughout the U.S. and/or may extend their work day to help you learn more about the career or industry you want to pursue. Registering or signing up for an interview or an event constitutes your commitment to attend and engage. We expect you to be punctual and well prepared to engage with our employers/recruiters. Moreover, we ask for professional patience if they are behind schedule. When selecting an interview time, students should not choose a time during a class or exam.  Being excused from class for an interview is at the sole discretion of each individual professor.

If for any reason you realize you cannot attend, up to the day of the interview or event, contact Career Services during office hours, by phone at 404-215-2644 or in person. True emergencies, which are rare, with prompt contact to explain, are understood. Changing your mind about attendance at the last minute does not constitute an emergency and repeated abuse may result in loss of privileges.
