Interview Cancellation and No Show Policy | Kent State University

Interview Cancellation and No Show Policy

Signing up for an on-campus interview at Kent State is a serious commitment that is expected to be upheld.

Interview appointments should be cancelled through Flash @ Work whenever possible. However, interview schedules are typically frozen 48 hours prior to the scheduled interview date. Once the interview date is within 48 business hours, cancellations must be made by contacting our office at 330-672-2360. When cancelling an interview, you must provide your name, which organization your interview is scheduled with, and the date and time of your interview.

Due to the professional nature of on-campus interviews, the following policy will be enforced when a candidate cancels an interview after the schedule has been frozen, or fails to show up for a previously scheduled interview or mock interview.

  • First Occurrence:

    A letter of apology/explanation must be written to the organization’s recruiter within 48 business hours of the scheduled interview. The letter must be received by the Career Exploration and Development (email) so that we may forward the apology to the recruiter. Participation in on-campus interviewing will be suspended until the letter is received by Career Exploration and Development.

  • Second Occurrence:

    A letter of apology/explanation must be written to the organization’s recruiter within 48 business hours of the scheduled interview. The letter must be received by the Career Exploration and Development (email) so that we may forward the apology to the recruiter. With the occurrence of a second cancellation or no-show, access to interviews on campus will be suspended for the remainder of the semester, or a minimum of 30 calendar days.

Cancellation of Classes

If classes are cancelled due to inclement weather, unless the university is closed, Career Exploration and Development will be open for business. If an organization has a day of scheduled interviews, unless we notify you personally by email or telephone, you can assume that your interviews will go on as scheduled.

University Closure

If the university is closed due to inclement weather, both on-campus interviews and any scheduled career events will be cancelled.  Check the university's advisory page for campus updates.

The Career Exploration and Development reserves the right to modify the terms and enforcement of this policy at any time.
