Policy Regarding Campus Interviews and Information Sessions with Employers
- If it is necessary to cancel an interview or information session, please do so as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours in advance. Interview spots are in high demand, and your early cancellation will give other Longwood students an opportunity to meet with the employer. To cancel, contact the Academic & Career Advising Center by phone, 434-395-2063, or in person.
- No-Show for an interview or information session is failure to honor a commitment.
- Your Dean and/or Department Chair will receive an email informing them of your late cancellation or no-show.
- You will forfeit your interviewing privileges until you meet with an Advisor in the Academic & Career Advising Center to have your privilege reinstated.
- You must also write a Letter of Apology to the employer and submit a copy of this letter to the Academic & Career Advising Center.
Our office strives to embody integrity, fairness, concern for student success, and quality customer service. The following information is given to inform you of our expectations.
Employers who are hiring candidates for bona fide positions may participate in the On-Campus Interviewing Program and in Job Fairs. Bona fide positions include:
- A professional position (salaried, classified, or hourly) is one which does not require a candidate to pay a fee for training, equipment, application procedures, or other job-related expenses. This does not apply to federal and state licensing requirements such as real estate, securities, etc.
- A bona fide internship is one in which a student works on a project of importance to the organization, receives timely instruction and feedback from a supervisor, and has a mentor-like relationship with someone in the organization who can teach him/her about the organization and the industry as a whole. The student should not be required to pay a fee except for housing or tuition.
