Career Services Office Policies
Rationale for Policies:
The events organized by the Career Center staff of CU Denver provide students
the opportunity to interact with many people in the educational, business, and
professional community. Therefore, it is in the best interest of all
participants to be professional, organized, and well-prepared. The Career Center
policies are established to ensure a favorable impression of the University of
Colorado Denver students and graduates to the professional community.
Office Expectations of Students:
- Provide Accurate Information: Job search materials should be truthful and
- Act with Integrity:
- Honor Commitments: Keep all scheduled career
counseling appointments and scheduled interviews.
- Genuine Interest: Schedule interviews only
with employers you have a genuine interest in working with.
- Professional Conduct: Accept an offer of
employment in good faith and notify employers of acceptance or
non-acceptance of the offer. After accepting a position, withdraw
your candidacy from all other interviews.
- Failure to Comply:
- No Show: Failure to show up for a scheduled
interview on-campus may result in losing the privilege to participate in
future employer-related events. The only acceptable excuse is a
substantiated family/personal emergency. If you do not show up for
a scheduled interview on-campus, you will be required to write a letter
of apology to the employer and “cc” the letter to the Career Center
within two days of the missed interview.
- Non-Compliance: Failure to adhere to any of
the above office expectations will result in the denial of access to the Career Lynx or interview
privileges with the Career Center.
to facilitate our mission, the Career Center is committed to the following:
- Provide Services: Assist with career planning, self-assessment,
resume development, and job search for students and alumni.
- Access of Information: Provide access to comprehensive services,
programs, resources, career opportunities, and a variety of employers.
- Non-Discrimination: “The University of Colorado does not discriminate on
the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed,
religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status in admission and access
to, and treatment and employment in, its educational programs and
activities. The University takes action to increase ethnic, cultural, and
gender diversity, to employ qualified disabled individuals, and to provide
equal opportunity to all students and employees.” http://administration.ucdenver.edu/admin/policies/hr/NondiscriminationProceduresGuideline.pdf
NO SHOW, FREQUENT RESCHEDULING AND
Students and alumni who “no show” or
request last minute rescheduling of their appointments three times will only be
eligible to be seen during Quick Tip hours for the remainder of the academic
year. Please call at least 24 hours in advance if you need to reschedule.
If a student is more
than 15 minutes late for a 50 minute appointment or more than 10 minutes late
for a 30 minute appointment, they will not be seen and must reschedule or use
Quick Tip appointments. No shows, frequent reschedules and tardiness are not
reflective of professional behavior and must be addressed.
The CU Denver Career Center treats information provided
during a counseling/coaching or drop-in appointment as confidential. Exceptions to confidentiality are stated in
detail below. Confidentiality and
privacy is strictly enforced, however the CU Denver Career Center cannot ensure
that email communication will be entirely secure. Therefore it is vital that you, as the
client, choose the proper communication method with a career counselor or staff
member that best suits your needs. If
desiring a more secure method of communication, you are encouraged to schedule
an in-person appointment.
All information disclosed within a counseling/coaching
session is confidential and will not be revealed to anyone outside of the CU
Denver Career Center without your written permission, except under several
conditions. The following are exceptions
to the confidentiality of information provided by clients in career counseling:
When the client, or
his or her legal representative, expressly waives confidentiality
When disclosure of
confidential information is required to prevent clear and
imminent danger to
the client or others
When a career
counselor consults with another career counselor to obtain
information or advice to assist in serving the career development
needs of the
When disclosure is
required by law, including, but not limited to, court-ordered
When circumstances require disclosure of
confidential information, only essential information will be revealed. The contents of specific meetings between you
and your counselor will not be discussed, but your overall progress may be
discussed in general terms. To the extent possible, a client will be informed
before confidential information is disclosed.
