Student Policies

The Career Center provides programs and services to support students with their individual professional pursuits. As a member of the campus community, we ask that students agree to be accountable for their actions as stated in the Vanderbilt University Community Creed, and engage in behavior that reflects a common set of values: scholarship, honesty, civility, accountability, caring, discovery, and celebration. 

All currently enrolled Vanderbilt undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to participate in campus recruiting. 

Coaching Appointments: Cancellation and Late Arrival

Students should arrive on time for scheduled appointments. Students who are unable to keep appointments should cancel at least 24 hours in advance by calling the Center at 615-322-2750. A student arriving more than 10 minutes late for a scheduled appointment without contacting the Center in advance will lose their appointment and need to reschedule. Missed appointments or appointments that are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice may be rescheduled no sooner than two weeks after the original appointment date.

Cancelling an Interview

You may cancel or reschedule an interview through the DoreWays system up to 48 hours (two business days) prior to the interview day. If you are experiencing an emergency, we encourage you to contact the Center via email and phone as soon as your situation allows. If you fail to attend a scheduled interview or cancel within two business days for a reason other than an emergency, your access to DoreWays will be “blocked.” In order to have “full access” status returned, you must arrange a meeting with a representative from the Career Center Employer Relations team and write an email of apology to the company. 

Reneging on Offers

If you have accepted an offer and the employer has confirmed their offer, you should cease all job search activities. If the employer makes a verbal offer, ask for confirmation in writing.

Misrepresentation

Misrepresentation of any information provided to an employer will result in immediate suspension of Career Center services, which includes access to opportunities in DoreWays.
