Cancellation Policy
INFORMATION SESSIONS

Once a student RSVPs for an on-campus information session, employers will expect him/her to be there and will use the list to track attendance and/or reach out to students as needed. Thus, students should cancel their RSVP at least one (1) hour prior to the session start time.

ON-CAMPUS INTERVIEWS

Accepting an On-Campus Interview
If a student is invited to interview with an employer while the organization is on campus, and a student accepts and schedules an interview slot, then the student should be prepared to arrive at the Career Center’s main reception on the first floor of Eustis 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled slot to check-in, unless otherwise noted.

Declining an On-Campus Interview
If a student cannot make an interview and knows at the time of the invitation, please do not accept or schedule an on-campus interview (in other words, decline the invitation.)

If a student schedules an interview but needs to then decline afterwards for whatever reason, please cancel the interview within the CareerLink system or by contact the Career Center as soon as possible and, at the latest, within 24-hours prior to the scheduled slot.

Emergency Cancellations
If a student accepts an invitation and schedules an interview with an employer, but an unexpected emergency happens prior to or on the day of the interview, please contact the Career Center immediately as well as the employer, if possible.

If a student does not cancel his/her scheduled interviews/sessions in a timely manner (as stated above), he/she will be subject to the Career Center’s No Show policy below.

No-Show Policy
The “no show” policy applies when a student does not appear for an on-campus recruiting event, particularly an information session and/or interview, for which the student RSVP’d and does not officially cancel by going into the Colby CareerLink system and/or contacting the Career Center or employer.

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 Colby values. 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. 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 your own independent job search, you are expected to completely withdraw from the job search process. If you are uncertain as to whether you should accept a job offer, please consult with a Career Center staff member. Reneging is unprofessional and jeopardizes Colby’s reputation in the employment community, as well as your own. Should you reneg on an offer, the Career Center may block you from participating in additional on-campus interviews.
