Indiana University Walter Center for Career Achievement (herein the “University”) provides a job referral service for students and prospective employers, whereby employers may post information about their current job listings on the University’s online system. This system, known as “Career Link,” allows students to access those listings to identify possible job listings, submit applications for certain job listings, and arrange interviews with particular employers.

The University is unable to research the integrity of the employers, which may include organizations and individuals, who post their jobs listings on Career Link. The University makes no representations, recommendations or guarantees regarding the accuracy or reliability, or otherwise, of any employer, posted job listing, or employment data transmitted through Career Link. The University urges you, the student, to exercise caution and common sense when utilizing Career Link and when applying for any position posted on the job listings.

University shall not be responsible to anyone who posts or accesses information or otherwise uses Career Link for any direct or indirect harm, damage or loss incurred in connection with such use, regardless of the nature of the alleged harm, damage or loss or corresponding demand, claim or cause of action. Without limiting the foregoing, the University expressly disclaims any responsibility or obligation to assess or determine the suitability of any individual seeking employment, any potential employer, or any potential employment situation. By using the Career Link service as a student or prospective employer, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the University and its employees and agents with respect to any claims made against the University in connection with your use of the service.

When using Career Link, your personal information will not be released by the University to an employer identified on the system unless and until you do one or more of the following:

Apply for a job/internship;

Apply for an interview schedule;

Select to be included in a resume book; or

Select the option to allow employers to view your profile.

Should you apply for a job/internship, apply for an interview schedule, or select the option to allow employers to view your profile, all information contained within your student profile will be viewable to the employer(s), including your resume, address, email, phone number, work authorization, graduation date, and GPA.
Students utilizing the career services provided by the University, including Career Link, are required to abide by the guidelines set forth in the “Playing Fair-Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Job Seeker (NACE)”. A copy of those guidelines may be accessed at

Interview Cancellation Policy

You may cancel an interview online without penalty at any time up until the “Sign-up Closed (no cancellations after this date)” date posted to the schedule. If you cannot attend the interview, call the Walter Center for Career Achievement at 812-855-0576; emails are not acceptable. If you call to cancel after the “Sign-up Closed (no cancellations after this date)” date-even for an emergency-the cancellation is considered a no-show (see below).

Interview No-Show Policy

In the event you fail to attend a scheduled interview (“no-shows”), your Career Link account will be immediately suspended. In addition, you will not be able to register for any future events.

In the event your Career Link account is suspended as a result of a “no-show” you may petition Arts + Sciences Career Services to have your account reactivated by completing the following steps within one week of the date of the missed interview:

Write a letter of apology to the employer;

Obtain documentation to support the reason for the no-show (e.g., doctor’s note, obituary notice, vehicle tow record);

Complete the appeal form and deliver it, along with the supporting documentation and two (2) copies of the apology letter sent to the employer, to Arts + Sciences Career Services at 625 North Jordan Avenue.

A decision on a petition to reactivate your account will be made within 72 hours of receiving the materials listed above.
In the event your account is suspended for a no-show and/or your petition to reactivate is pending, you must continue to attend any and all previously scheduled interviews. You must also check your personal calendar and e-mail carefully for all scheduled interviews.
In the event you fail to complete the items listed above in the allotted time, or if, after being reinstated, you no-show a second time, Arts + Sciences Career Services may choose to maintain the suspension of your account for the remainder of the academic year.
