Marshall University Office of Career Education Disclaimer

The Marshall University (Marshall) Office of Career Education (OCE) strives for open access and connections between students and employers. All hiring and compensation for work performed by employees are handled directly between the student/alumni job seeker and the employer. The Office of Career Education makes no representations or guarantees about positions listed on its website or presented at any job fair and is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of employment. It is the student/alumnus responsibility for all necessary precautions when interviewing for or accepting positions, and he/she is solely responsible for obtaining necessary information concerning the employer. Therefore, employers and students/alumni are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials, and overall fit between the employer and the applicant.

All job opportunities are posted at the discretion of the Office of Career Education. The OCE may deny and/or remove access rights for organizations that do not support the policies and procedures of Marshall University or that violate state and/or federal law.

The Office of Career Education abides by the principles set forth by NACEThe National Association of Colleges and Employers.

Marshall University Office of Career Education Student Appointment Policy

RATIONALE:

  • Students arriving late and/or missing appointments create a scheduling issue for the OCE staff and other students. Late arrivals will cause other students to wait past their scheduled appointment time and missed appointments take time away opportunities for others trying to get appointments with OCE staff.
  • Walk-in appointments may be sent from other departments or stopping by on their own. While OCE staff try to accommodate this situation, there are times when no one is available.

POLICY:

Late

  • Students are considered late if they arrive 10 or more minutes past their scheduled appointment time with an OCE staff member.
  • If a student must be late, he/she must notify the Office of Career Education via phone or email by the scheduled appointment time.
  • If notification has not been received by the scheduled appointment time, the student may need to reschedule the appointment.

No-Show

  • Students are considered “no-shows” if they miss their appointment with an OCE staff member without notifying the office.
  • If a student must miss his/her appointment for any reason, he/she must give the Office of Career Education 1 hours’ notice via phone or email.
  • Notification received beyond 1 hour will be considered a no-show.
  • For required class assignments, students who cancel an appointment more than one time will not have permission to complete the assignment.

Walk-in

  • Students will be seen if an OCE staff member is available.

Mock Interviews

  • Students who do not contact the Office of Career Education 24 hours prior to the scheduled mock interview to cancel or reschedule will be considered a no show and will not be allowed to reschedule.

PROCEDURES:

  • After 3 offenses (Late & No-Show combined), students cannot make another appointment without first speaking to an OCE staff member.
  • All offenses will be cleared at the onset of each new semester (Fall/Spring).

MONITORING: Procedures to be reviewed a minimum of once per year by the Office of Career Education staff.

Effective Date: August 26, 2019
