Ethics

Interview No Show
This policy applies when a student does not appear for a scheduled interview. Failure to show for a scheduled interview is unprofessional and jeopardizes Duquesne University's reputation in the employment community as well as your own.

When a student does not appear for a scheduled interview:

The student will lose full access to DuqCareerLink until you:
• Meet with your Career Counselor to discuss appropriate professional behavior (make an "interview no show" appointment by calling 412-396-6644 or visiting the Career Services Center);
• 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 including:
       - Write 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;
• Consequences may include indefinite loss of full access to DuqCareerLink and/or your dismissal from the On-campus Recruiting program.
• Violation of the No Show Policy may result in Career Services sharing your actions with your academic department.

Interview Cancellation
This policy applies 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 cancels a scheduled interview without sufficient notice:

The student may lose full access to DuqCareerLink until you:
• Meet with your Career Counselor to discuss appropriate professional behavior (make an "interview no show" appointment by calling 412-396-6644 or visiting the Career Services Center);

Repeated late cancellations may result in the indefinite loss of full access to DuqCareerLink and/or your dismissal from the On-campus Recruiting program.
• Violation of the Cancellation Policy may result in sharing your actions with your academic department.

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. Employers have the right to withdraw an offer or to terminate your employment for misrepresentation.
