Code of Conduct for Job Seekers: Career Fair

These are policies and procedures to follow while participating in the ACS Career Fair. These policies and procedures are in place to ensure that you, as well as employers, have a positive and productive experience. Repeated instances of unprofessional behavior by job seekers can result in decreased employer participation, further resulting in fewer job opportunities.

Adhere to the following:

  • Display professionalism while interviewing.
  • Exhibit a positive attitude.
  • Research potential employers.
  • Come professionally dressed for your interview.
  • Honor your commitments – show up for your interviews!
  • Be on time for all interviews.
  • Address others by their professional titles.
  • Be honest about your qualifications.
  • Thank the interviewer for their time and your opportunity to meet with them.
  • Notify the employer promptly if you cannot accept a job offer.

Interview "No Shows" and Late Cancellation Policy

Submitting a resume to request an interview is a formal commitment to the employer. If you are selected for an interview, you are committed to showing up for the interview at the designated time. If you do not keep your appointment with an employer, you will be considered a “no show.” Should an emergency or unforeseen circumstances arise that will prohibit you from making an interview, it is your professional responsibility to inform the employer, or a member of the ACS Career Fair staff, of your need to cancel an interview.

The ACS Career Fair cancellation policy is that all job seekers must provide employers with at least a half-day’s notice of any interview cancellation. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in a notation in the job seeker’s online profile informing prospective employers of “no show” instances, as well as possible revocation of further online job searching and interviewing privileges within the ACS Career Fair.

Accurate Representation Policy

Always provide accurate information in setting up your ACS Career Fair profile, on your resume and during your interview. Do not falsify work experience, GPA, education or employment dates, eligibility, leadership roles, etc.
