Policies and Procedures
COER Ethical Behavior Policies (revised 08/09/12)
Missouri S&T Career Opportunities & Employer Relations (COER) has strict policies to enforce ethical behaviors. One of COER’s goals is to work responsibly with employers in order to establish a good relationship. These relationships can increase the quality and number of job opportunities that are brought to Missouri S&T students. Each student is expected to reflect as positively as possible on the University, as well as on his or her department. Unethical behaviors reflect poorly on the individual, the department, and the University, and might result in fewer opportunities overall. Every deviation from ethical practices is a waste of valuable time, money and resources.
Work Authorization Policy
An individual registering with COER is required to provide accurate information regarding work authorization. For example, one should not select Permanent Resident if one is on an F1, H1 or J1 visa to allow for application to positions restricted to US citizen or permanent resident only. Any misrepresentation of work authorization will result in restriction of registration and interviewing privileges, meaning the individual will be taken off any interview schedules that they are on and will have no access to COER services, until the individual attends a meeting with the Associate Director of Career Opportunities & Employer Relations. Pending the outcome of the meeting, the Associate Director may or may not terminate registration and interviewing privileges for the remainder of the semester.
Intent to Interview Policy
An individual scheduling an interview via COER must truly intend to participate in the interview within the parameters of the interview design. For example, one should not schedule an on-campus interview if one is away from campus and then expect to be accommodated with a telephone interview. Any misrepresentation of intent to interview will result in restriction of registration and interviewing privileges, meaning the individual will be taken off any schedules that they are on and will have no access to COER services, until the individual attends a meeting with the Associate Director of Career Opportunities & Employer Relations. Pending the outcomes of the meeting, the Associate Director may or may not terminate registration and interviewing privileges for the remainder of the semester.
Interview No-Show Policy
Any individual who misses an interview must copy the COER Associate Director on an e-mail of apology and explanation to the interviewer within 5 days after receiving an email of no-show policy violation notification from the COC Associate Director to retain on-campus interviewing privileges. If a letter of apology and explanation is not emailed by 4:30 pm on the fifth day to the interviewer, interviewing privileges will be revoked, meaning the no-show individual will be taken off any schedules that they are on, until an e-mail has been sent. In addition, a second “no show” will terminate the right to interview for the remainder of the semester. A letter of explanation to the interviewer is still required.
A student must give at least a 24-hour notice to cancel an interview commitment. This allows another student to interview. If an interview is cancelled prior to the 24-hour time frame, the student will not be required to write a letter of explanation.
