On-Campus Interviews Protocol & Professional Conduct
Career Development Handbook for Daytime Students

While maintaining established relationships with large and small employers throughout the United States, Career Development develops new recruiting relationships reflecting changing student interest and current MBA trends. These relationships create a wide variety of internship and career employment opportunities.

Company recruiters conduct three types of interview schedules: open (first-come, first-served), pre-selected and mixed (combined open and pre-selected). It is imperative that each student is aware and understands what type of schedule he/she is applying and interviewing for. All GSM on-campus interview schedules involve different procedures and deadlines. All on-campus interview schedules and their respective resume deadlines will be posted on the Symplicity calendar and announced in the GSM Career Development Newsletter. Reminders may also be sent out via e-mail. You will apply online through Symplicity for the GSM on-campus interviews.  As with the mock interviews, please check-in with the receptionist in Suite 1101 to let him/her know you have arrived on time for your interview(s).

Interview Guidelines

Interviews are important part of your job search strategy. We expect that you will participate in a highly professional and ethical manner. We know we can count on you to:

  1. Not use on-campus interviewing for “practice.”
  2. Pursue only those positions in which you have a genuine interest.
  3. Respond to all invitations (in a timely manner) from companies inviting you to sign up on a pre-selected interview schedule, even if the response is to decline the interview.
  4. Show up on time and well prepared for all scheduled interviews.
  5. Give an honest and complete account of your work experience and education on your resume and truthfully answer relevant questions from interviewers.
  6. Discontinue your job search and notify all other potential employers after you have accepted an offer for an internship or career position.
  7. Honor all “accepted” internship, career and project agreements made in writing and/or verbally.
  8. Remain in good academic standing.

Honoring Interview Appointments

Twenty-four hour notice is required to cancel a scheduled interview.

Students who do not show up have prevented another student from using a valuable interview slot and have jeopardized the GSM relationship with the employer. If, under extraordinary circumstances (car failure, sudden illness, death in the family), you are unable to participate in an on-campus interview, you must call the Career Development Office immediately at (530) 752-4003.

If, for any reason, you have to cancel or miss an interview appointment you must, within three working days of the scheduled interview, write a letter of apology to the recruiter and send a copy to the Assistant Director of Career Development. Failure to do so will result in revocation of your interviewing privileges and the use of other services offered by the Career Development Center, until this letter of apology is sent to the recruiter and a copy provided to the Assistant Director of Career Development.

  • Cancellation of more than two interviews may result in permanent loss of interviewing privileges.
  • Failure to show up for more than one scheduled interview without prior notice will result in permanent loss of interviewing privileges. This includes changing your MBA Accelerator access to inactive, essentially preventing you from fully utilizing the system.

Professional behavior is expected! You must conduct yourself professionally at all times when using Career Development.  We expect professional conduct at all GSM professional events (Dean’s Distinguished Speaker Series, Company Information Sessions, Alumni Day, etc.) Professional conduct will be discussed during each GSM Workshop.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
