The On Campus Recruiting program gives juniors and seniors the opportunity to interview with employers visiting The Claremont Colleges. The Claremont Colleges Joint Recruiting Program is comprised of Claremont Graduate University, Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Keck Graduate Institute, Pitzer College, Pomona College and Scripps College.
This joint program offers students a wider variety of employers than any one campus could accommodate. MUDDlink, our web-based recruiting program, allows student to access recruiting events on-line 24 hours a day. Additionally, MUDDlink allows students to do the following:
- View and research employers coming to The Claremont Colleges to recruit students for full-time, part-time, summer jobs, and internships.
- Obtain information about employer or career Services' presentations.
- Sign up for interview schedules.
- Change and cancel an interview time.
You are strongly encouraged to read about the types of interviews offered and the student responsibility form below.
Open interview - schedules are filled on a first-come, first serve basis. Students can sign-up on-line for an interview after submitting the required materials.
Pre-select interview - schedules allow employers to choose the students they wish to interview. Students submit application materials to employers on-line before a specified deadline. Students who are selected can sign-up online for the interviews.
Resume drop - refers to companies and organizations who are unable to come to campus to conduct interviews. Once application materials are submitted, employers will contact students individually to set up interviews at a location designated by the organization. Students submit application materials to employers on-line before a specified deadline.
My use of the college’s online recruiting system constitutes an agreement between the career centers of The Claremont Colleges and me that I will adhere to the rules and policies that are part of this agreement. I understand that any abridgement of these rules may cause my on-campus recruiting privileges at The Claremont Colleges to be modified or revoked.
Rules for participation in online recruiting
- I will submit my application materials through my college’s online recruiting system before the deadline listed in the job description.
- I will regularly check my college’s recruiting system to maintain an awareness of any communication from employers.
- I will acknowledge an employer’s invitation if selected for an interview and understand that, if I accept, it is my responsibility to choose an interview time and to participate in said interview.
- I will keep track of my interview dates, times and locations and will check-in with the appropriate career center 10 – 15 minutes prior to each interview.
- I will dress appropriately for my interview.
- I am professionally and ethically obligated to keep all scheduled interview appointments.
- If I must cancel an appointment, I will do so through my college’s online recruiting system 48 hours prior to the interview date and time, and inform the host career center of my cancellation.
- If I fail to show up for an interview without notice—for any reason—I understand that I may lose all recruiting privileges at The Claremont Colleges for the remainder of the academic year and could be subject to further disciplinary action.
- Once I have accepted an offer, I will cancel all scheduled interviews immediately.
Emergency Cancellation Procedures
- If the 48 hour deadline has passed, and only in case of an emergency, I will call or visit, in-person, the host career center as soon as possible. I understand that an e-mail or voicemail excuse is unacceptable in this situation.
- I will document my cancellation, including the date and time I called and the name of the person with whom I spoke at the host career center, to arrange the cancellation. I will also inform my career center.
- I understand that if I have to cancel after the deadline for any reason, I am obligated to write a letter of apology to the recruiter and copy my career center and the host campus career office immediately.
Accepting, Declining or Reneging on a Job Offer
- Accepting a job offer is very serious. Before accepting an offer I will consider my options carefully and, if needed, request more time to make the best decision for me. If I need help with this process, I will contact my career center.
- I understand that accepting a job offer, either verbally or in writing, represents a formal commitment to the employer. Reneging on a job offer is unacceptable and may result in the loss of recruiting privileges for the rest of the academic year.
- It is my ethical responsibility to discontinue interviewing with all other employers once I have accepted an offer, whether through on-campus recruiting or my own career search efforts.
- If I am considering reneging on an offer, I will contact my career center before taking action to discuss the ramifications of such a decision.
- I promise to be professional and respectful in accepting or declining all job offers and understand that my behavior directly reflects on my school and The Claremont Colleges.
