Request for Private Interview Rooms after the Career Fair

If you choose to interview the day after the career fair, you may reserve a private interview room. All reservations requested are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and must be requested the day of the career fair. There is a one room per company limit. Please see Career Services recruiting staff to reserve your space. On the day of the career fair, once you have secured your room you will be provided with a blank interview schedule. You control your schedule and may add candidates throughout the day. Your final schedule must be given to Career Services recruiting staff.

Career Fair Cancellation and Refund Policy

We hope that a company will not cancel, but in the event that a company chooses to withdraw completely from the career fair, the following refund schedule will apply. Once you have been notified that your registration has been approved, our cancellation policy is in effect. The following cancellation policy applies: 

Cancellations received IN WRITING, prior to the cancellation deadline two weeks before the fair will receive a full refund minus $100.00. No refunds will be issued after the deadline date. See Event Policies for more details.
Employers with outstanding fees will be invoiced by Career Services. An invoice and two past-due invoices will be sent. The third notice will be the final notice. If the organization has not paid their account in full by the deadline date noted on the third notice, their account will be referred to the University to refer to a private collection agency. Organizations will be notified that their organization will be liable for the collections agency fee.
Organizations whose account is not paid in full will be required to pay for all past outstanding fees and pre-pay for the current fair they wish to attend. Employers with any outstanding fees will not be permitted to attend the fair, until their account is paid in full. 

No Show Policy

Organizations that do not check-in by 10:30 a.m. on the day of the event will be considered a “no show." The table may be reassigned and the organization will be billed for the event. We cannot “roll over” the registration to another event or refund the fee.
