Interview Policies for Students and Alumni

On or Off Campus Employer Interviews

No Show Policy

• Due to the professional nature of on-campus interviews, the following policy will be enforced when a candidate fails to cancel in a timely manner or fails to show up for a previously scheduled interview. Candidates who “no show” for an interview will be temporarily suspended from using the Handshake system.
• Candidates may remove themselves from an interview schedule through the Handshake system up to two working days prior to the on-campus interview. A cancellation occurring after this time will be considered a “no show.”
