Please familiarize yourself with the following policies as you participate in OCR and contact the Toppel staff if you have any questions or concerns.
A lack of professionalism from our students is an inconvenience to employers and reflects poorly on other UM students, faculty, and staff. A lack of professionalism has the potential to damage Toppel’s relationship with employers who may reconsider whether or not to participate in OCR in the future. Years taken to build business relationships for the benefit of the entire UM community can be erased with just a few negative experiences. Please observe the highest professional and ethical standards and see yourself as we see you: an ambassador to the business community, representing the University of Miami.
No Show Policy
The no show policy applies when a student does not appear for a scheduled on-campus interview and/or when a student does not cancel their interview with at least 48 hours advance notice. All interview cancelations must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, including emergencies.
First Offense - The student will:
- Lose full access to HireACane until he/she attends a meeting with the Assistant Director of On-Campus Recruiting
- Contact the Career Center to schedule the meeting by phone (305-284-1918) or via email (email@example.com)
- Provide a letter of apology addressed “Dear Recruiter” in a printed and electronic format
Second Offense - The student will be banned from all On-Campus Interviewing activities
Falsifying data such as your identity, GPA, dates of graduation, major/minor, work experience, or other information is unethical and in violation of the Toppel Career Center’s standards. If you falsify documents or misrepresent yourself to any employer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, the Career Center has the right to rescind your privileges to use our services. You may also be subject to additional repercussions from the Dean of Students Office and from employers themselves.
Reneging on Job Offers
Once you accept a job offer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, you are expected to withdraw completely from the job search process. If you are uncertain as to whether you should accept an offer or would like guidance to salary negotiations, please consult with a Toppel Career Center staff member. Reneging is unprofessional and jeopardizes UM's reputation in the employment community as well as your own. Should you renege on an offer, the Career Center may block you from participating in any additional on-campus interviews or revoke your access to HireACane.
