No Show & Late Cancellation Policy

Failing to attend OR failing to cancel a scheduled on-campus interview 48 business hours in advance of your interviewing time will result in your being blocked from HireMason and the On-Campus Interviewing Program.

No Show & Late Cancelation Policy Details

First Offense: Temporarily Blocked
If you fail to keep a scheduled interview with an employer or fail to cancel 48 business hours in advance, you will be blocked from the On-Campus Interviewing Program AND from all HireMason usage until you follow these steps:

  1. Set up a meeting with your Industry Advisor as soon as possible to discuss your absence
  2. Write an apology letter to the employer within 24 hours of speaking with your Industry Advisor
  3. Email your apology letter to Quayla C. Allen, Employer Relations Coordinator. Once approved, the apology letter will be forwarded to the employer.

Your HireMason account will then be reactivated, and you may continue to use the system and participate in the OCI Program.

Second Offense: Permanently Blocked
If you fail to keep a scheduled interview with an employer a second time, you will be blocked from HireMason and dismissed from the On-Campus Interview Program permanently.

This includes removal of your resume from consideration for any pending OCI employers and removal of your name from any already scheduled interviews.

You may petition to regain access to HireMason by speaking to your Industry Advisor, however you will not be permitted to participate in the OCI Program.

Why so strict?
Strong relationships between Mason and local employers are built upon successful recruiting efforts. When a student cancels an on-campus interview in an untimely manner or fails to show up entirely, this damages our relationship with employers. Damaged relationships can lead to a loss of resources and access to future opportunities for Mason students.
