Appointment Expectations

When a student schedules an appointment in Career Services for any service (including but not limited to: Career Assessments, Resume Reviews, Mock Interviews, and Job Searches) and does not notify Career Services regarding of their inability to attend the appointment , nor attends the appointment, this is considered a “No Show.” When a student “No-Shows” for two consecutively scheduled appointments, the student is no longer eligible for a one-on-one appointment until certain criteria are met. The criteria is: the student must attend a Walk-In-Workshop to demonstrate intention and effort in utilizing Career Services resources.
