As a ‘Cane, you are an ambassador representing the University of Miami for the rest of your life. Observing the highest professional and ethical standards is just part of the ‘Cane package. We know you always want to put your best foot forward, so we’ve put together a few policies to guide you as you work toward your dreams.
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 cancellations must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, including emergencies.
First Offense - The student will:
Second Offense - The student will be banned from all On-Campus Recruiting 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.
Once you accept a job/internship 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 on salary negotiations, please consult with a Toppel Career Center staff member. Rescinding is unprofessional and jeopardizes UM's reputation in the employment community, as well as your own professional reputation. 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 Handshake.
The Toppel Career Center makes every effort to screen employers and job postings on Handshake. Unfortunately, there are individuals who post “fake” jobs for the purpose of identity theft or fraud. When using Handshake or other job sites, students should be mindful and use caution when applying for or accepting any position.
Things to Look for:
If you have any questions or need to report a suspicious employer, contact the Toppel Career Center at 305-284-5451 or HireACane@miami.edu.
