Ethics

Misrepresentation

Falsifying data such as your GPA, dates of graduation, major/minor, work experience, eligibility to work in the United States or other information is unethical and in violation of Duquesne University's Code of Student Conduct. If you falsify documents or misrepresent yourself to any employer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, the Career Services Center has the right to rescind your privileges to use our services. Employers have the right to withdraw an offer to terminate your employment for misrepresentation.

No Show and Cancellation Policy
This policy applies when a student does not appear for a scheduled interview and/or when a student cancels an interview with less than a 48-hour notice. Sudden cancellations may not give the employer sufficient time to find another student to fill your interview appointment slot.

When a student does not appear for a scheduled interview, the student will lose full access to DuqCareerLink until s/he:

• Meets with your Career Counselor to discuss appropriate professional behavior* (make an appointment through Starfish);
• Writes a letter of apology to the recruiter who expected to interview you;
• Cc your career counselor when you send your letter of apology to the recruiter;
• Completes any additional actions as determined by your career counselor.
• Violation of this policy may result in your actions being shared with your academic department.

* The information from this meeting will be taken into consideration and additional action may be required on your part based on the discretion of your career counselor. Consequences may include loss of full access to DuqCareerLink and/or your dismissal from the On-campus Recruiting program.

Reneging on Job Offers

Once you accept a job or internship offer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, you are expected to withdraw completely from the job search process. If you are uncertain as to whether you should accept an offer, please consult with your career counselor. Reneging is unprofessional and jeopardizes Duquesne University's reputation in the employment community as well as your own. Should you renege on an offer, the Career Services Center may restrict your participation in any additional on-campus interviews or revoke your access to DuqCareerLink.
