Interview: No Show/Late Cancellation policy

Late cancellations or missed interviews are a hindrance to your success and leave a negative impact on Michigan State University and our relationships with employers. The following policy addresses this concern and the serious implications resulting from a late cancellation or a no-show.

Job Acceptance: Renege Policy 

A job acceptance is a major commitment to your new employer. You should only make this type of commitment if you intend to honor it. Reneging is: Accepting a job offer from a second company while declining an already accepted job offer from the first company. This can severely damage your reputation, not only in the short-term, but also for the duration of your career. Reneging also has negative implications on the University’s relationships with the employer and can affect opportunities for other MSU students. The University does not sanction a renege situation on your part for any reason. Please carefully review the reneging policy before accepting any job offers.
