Policies

 

Candidate No Show Policy

No shows are unacceptable. If you schedule an interview with an employer, you are expected to honor that commitment.

Simply removing your name from the list on CareerWeb does not constitute notification. You must call the Career Services department holding the event (Student Employment 678.839.6433, Professional Practice 678.839.6630, Career Employment 678.839.6431 24 (working) hours in advance.
Working hours are defined as Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm.
If you fail to attend an interview that you scheduled without notifying the department 24 (working) hours in advance, your privileges in the Department of Career Services will be suspended until you: 
     • Meet with the program coordinator
         o Student Employment 678.839.6433
         o Professional Practice 678.839.6630
         o Career Employment 678.839.6431
     • Write a letter of apology to the recruiter (with a copy to us) explaining the reason for the no-show or cancellation. If a second no-show occurs, you will no longer be allowed to use our services. 

This policy may seem harsh, but think about what is involved. By signing up for an interview time and then not attending the interview, you are taking away an interview time from someone else. Additionally, no-shows are a bad reflection on the university. A great deal of work is involved in bringing recruiters to the campus; every effort must be made to make the recruiter's visit here worthwhile.

Students

Students/alumni use CareerWeb/Experience available through UWG Career Services (http://www.westga.edu/careerservices) to post resumes, review job opportunities, and register for career-related programs and recruitment events.  The information in a candidate’s profile is used by UWG Career Services for job-search advice, to promote programs, services and events, to notify candidates of employment opportunities, and to refer qualified candidates to employers.

Only the resumes of students who have given their permission to have their resumes released to employers (indicated on the “Privacy Tab”) in Student Profile will be shared with or accessible to prospective employers.

UWG Career Services updates student/alumni academic, demographic and directory information in UWG CareerWeb at least once a semester through the campus student/registration database (BANNER).  If there is directory/academic/demographic data you feel is inaccurate in CareerWeb that you cannot edit in the system directly, please contact the Registrar’s office to update your information in BANNER to avoid any inaccuracies being transferred to the system.

UWG Career Services may access user profiles in order to notify user(s) of employment or educational opportunities.  The data that has been entered into the system might also be used for evaluating services, employment activities, educational programs, employment and salary surveys, and for reports developed for institutional studies.
