websites. Students are also encouraged to research companies by attending

literature. For more information on conducting company research,
If contact information is not included in the job description, the company has elected not to share that information. Either use the Internet or telephone book to look up the information you need.
You are expected to attend the information session if you have been pre-selected for an interview. You want to attend the session if you are interested in the company and just want to learn more about opportunities and meet people who are involved in the interview process. The goal is to have a competitive edge by meeting face-to-face.
Over 50% of the companies who participate in on-campus interviewing will host an "Info Session" in advance of their interview date. These evening presentations typically last 1 hour and provide valuable insight about the company and positions. Expect to see 2-3 Info Sessions per night during recruiting season. All interested students are encouraged to attend. Check On Campus Interview Schedules
and Career Events in MustangTRAK weekly for location of the information sessions.

CAMPUS INTERVIEW CANCELLATION / NO SHOW POLICY
If you MUST cancel a scheduled campus interview with an employer visiting SMU, the deadline for doing so is
24 hours prior (8:30-5:00 Monday-Friday) to the interview. You are responsible for contacting the Hegi Career Center's Employer Relations Coordinator at 214.768.2287 and requesting that your name be removed from a schedule.
Failure to cancel your interview 24 hours prior to the interview will result in the interview being classified as a "no show".
A "no show" is defined as a missed scheduled interview where the student does not appear for the interview and has not notified or given sufficient cancellation notification (as defined above) to the Hegi Career Center prior to the interview.
Campus interviews are an important service provided by the Hegi Career Center. Failure to follow interview cancellation procedures means an opportunity denied to other students who could have taken advantage of an interview on campus. It also means time and money lost to the employer and a less favorable view of SMU and its candidates.
If you violate the interview cancellation policy above -
regardless of the reason (including illness, emergencies, etc.) your on-campus recruiting account will be
immediately deactivated and you will be required to meet with a Hegi Career Center professional staff member within two (2) working days subsequent to the missed interview. You will also be required to submit a ready-to-mail letter of apology to the employer. The letter of apology is to be given to the Hegi Career Center's receptionist within ONE (1) working day from meeting with a Hegi Career Center professional staff member. Upon receipt of the letter of apology, your on-campus recruiting account will be re-activated.
If you fail to meet with a professional staff member and submit a written letter of apology
and/or violate the interview cancellation policy more than once, your on-campus recruiting account will remain inactive and your interview privileges will be revoked indefinitely by the Hegi Career Center.
Employers will indicate on their Job Description whether or not their organization requires U.S. citizenship or Permanent Residency in the US. All international students seeking employment within the U.S. should consult with the International Office before participating in the program.
