On-Campus Recruiting Policies for Students

No Show Policy
The no show policy applies when a student does not appear for a scheduled interview and/or when a student cancels an interview with less than a 24 hours notice.

First Offense - The student will:

  • Lose full access to Duke CareerConnections until he/she attends a meeting with the Assistant Director of Employer Relations.
  • Contact the Career Center to schedule the meeting by phone (919-660-1053). Students cannot make an appointment online for this purpose and these appointments must be made by phone.

Second Offense – The student will:

  • Lose full access to Duke CareerConnections for the rest of the academic year.
  • Meet with the Assistant Director of Employer Relations to understand next steps and consequences.

Should a student wish to appeal their case, s/he can request an appeal process within 48 hours (2 business days) of being notified of second offense status.  Students must send an email to career-employer@studentaffairs.duke.edu with Interview No-Show Appeal in the subject line.  Students must include the interview date, employer, and the interview time that was missed along with the reason for not showing up.  Any additional information or evidence in support of their case can be included as well.  The Assistant and Associate Director of Employer Relations will meet to discuss the appeal.

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 the Duke Community Standard. If you falsify documents or misrepresent yourself to any employer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, the Career Center has the right to rescind your privileges to use our services. You may also be subject to disciplinary action through the Dean of Students Office. Employers have the right to withdraw an offer or terminate your employment for misrepresentation.

Reneging on Job Offers
Once you accept a job 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 a Career Center staff member. Reneging is unprofessional and jeopardizes Duke's reputation in the employment community as well as your own. Should you renege on an offer, the Career Center may block you from participating in any additional on-campus interviews.

**We recommend you become familiar with the policies for employers who are recruiting at Duke.
