Employer Information Sessions
Organizations often have information sessions prior to their
interview date. It is assumed and expected that all those
scheduled to be interviewed will attend. All other students
are invited to attend to learn more about the organization
whether or not an interview is arranged. Information
sessions are listed in JobGrove within the Career Fairs and
Events section of the site and are also connected to the job
and interview schedule.
Day of the Interview
Research the organization before your interview and come
dressed professionally. Plan to arrive 15 minutes ahead of
your interview time. Inform the CSO’s Office Manager that
you are present.
Procedures & Policies
Authorization of Letters of
Recommendation & Transcripts
Recommendation forms to be used by faculty and past
employers can be found in the CSO and in the resource
library of JobGrove. You have the option to retain or waive
your rights to view the recommendation. Upon receiving your
recommendations, a personal file will be established in the
CSO. Recommendations will be mailed to employers at your
request. You can also upload your recommendation letters to
My Documents within JobGrove if you have chosen to not waive
your rights to view them.
Copies of your transcripts and recommendations are
prepared by the CSO and given to campus recruiters for
on-campus interviews. Students must authorize the release of
their unofficial transcripts and recommendation letters to
the CSO by completing a form made available by the office.
Students are required to ensure that the QPA listed on their
resume exactly matches the QPA listed on their transcript.
Cancellations and No-Shows
It is a privilege to interview on campus and one we hope
students will respect. For years, Grove City College has had
an honorable reputation with campus recruiters and companies
hiring its graduates. To maintain such a reputation, it is
necessary to have a policy for cancellations and no-shows.
When you submit a resume for pre-screening or you sign
up for an interview, you have made a commitment to that
organization. If you are selected, but have to cancel your
commitment, you must notify the CSO. Cancellations
must be made 48 hours in advance. If the
cancellation is not made 48 hours in advance, you must send
a letter of explanation to the employer and a copy to the
Director of the Career Services Office. Include the reason
for missing your interview.
If you do not appear for
your interview and fail to follow the procedure outlined
above, your on-campus interviewing privileges may be
forfeited. Your cooperation in keeping interview commitments
is greatly appreciated.
Accepting a Job Offer
Upon receiving a job offer, prayerfully and discerningly
approach the decision-making process before accepting or
rejecting the offer. Once you have accepted an offer, it is
important to keep your commitment and honor your word with
that organization, ceasing all job search activity with
other potential employers.
After accepting an offer
of employment either from on-campus interviewing or through
your own efforts, please inform the CSO. We participate in a
national program for reporting offers of employment, and we
want to include you. Salary offers are kept confidential.
