Appointments with Career Services

Individualized Assistance

The Office of Career Services is pleased to provide individualized assistance to students and graduates. To make an appointment, call (678) 466-5400 or stop by the office.

Students and graduates are expected to honor the scheduled appointment time. Arriving on time for an appointment and providing notification of a need to miss or reschedule an appointment are critical demonstrations of professionalism. The Office of Career Services responds to tardiness or missed appointments in an effort to develop the professionalism that employers expect.

  • If you need to cancel or re-schedule an appointment, please call the Career Services office at least 30 minutes in advance.
  • If you are running late for an appointment, please call and let us know.

The following policies apply to all students and graduates who make individualized appointments with Career Services.

Late Arrival

Any student or graduate who arrives for an appointment more than 15 minutes after the scheduled time is considered a "late arrival." If the student or graduate provides advance notice of the tardiness, he or she may still meet with the Career Services staff member for the remaining portion of the allotted appointment time. Students or graduates who do not provide prior notification of their tardiness and arrive more than 15 minutes late will be required to reschedule the appointment.

"No Show"

A student or graduate is considered a "no show" if he or she misses an appointment or arrives more than 30 minutes late to an appointment without calling to notify the Office of Career Services.

1st offense: After the first missed appointment, the student or graduate will receive an e–mail reminder of the "No Show" policy including an indication that a second offense during the same semester results in being unable to schedule any appointments that semester.

2nd offense: After the second missed appointment, the student or graduate will receive an e–mail notification that he or she will be unable to make individual appointments for the remainder of the semester. All other services (including participation in career fairs and on–campus recruiting) will still be available to the student or graduate.

Employment and Internship Posting Policy

All employment and internship opportunities for Clayton State University students and graduates are posted in Laker CareerZone. Posted positions are then reviewed and approved by the Office of Career Services. If the positions meet professional standards and internal policies, the positions are approved for student and graduate access.  Companies or organizations requiring an employment-related fee from students or graduates is not eligible to post job or internship opportunities

The Office of Career Services does not permit the use of work authorization, visa status, or citizenship data in Laker CareerZone postings.  This policy is in compliance with a Department of Justice determination.  More information is available on the following sites:

2) NACE: http://www.naceweb.org/talent-acquisition/internships/

In addition to following Career Services’ Posting Policy, all companies and organizations must also adhere to the following University Posting and Announcement Policy:

Non-University persons, businesses, vendors, or non-profit organizations are strictly prohibited from posting advertisements, event announcements, and services on campus.

Any company or organization that seeks to promote employment opportunities in any way other than through Laker CareerZone and the Office of Career Services or that fails to comply with the University Posting and Announcement Policy will be denied access to Laker CareerZone posting and denied participation in on-campus recruiting.
