Mini Case Study #1: Database Access Your Vice President for Development has requested access to your employer database to market university events not connected to recruiting/career services. In the past, similar requests had been channeled through you, but now this Vice President wants employer names, along with the individual contacts and their email addresses and phone numbers in order to contact them directly. –How will you respond to this request? –What standards/precedents will you apply in your response? –How will your decision impact your employer relationships?
Mini Case Study #2: Internship Standards The Dean of your College of Liberal Arts has asked for your advice and recommendations regarding establishing college-wide standards for internships for academic credit. She is particularly concerned about what is allowable in unpaid internships, but is most interested in creating general standards that will apply to all internships for credit (paid and unpaid). –How will you advise the Dean? –What advice will you give regarding unpaid internships? –What advice will you give regarding general standards for internship for academic credit? –What tools, resources will your reference in crafting your advice and recommendations?
Mini Case Study #3: Social Media Jim, a current student, has requested to connect with you (an employer or career service representative) through LinkedIn and Facebook. –How will you respond to the Facebook request? –How will you respond to the LinkedIn request? –What standards are you applying in making these decisions? –Are you applying these standards equitably? –How will your decision (yes or no) impact your relationship with the student?
Mini Case Study #4: Reneging on a Job Offer Jane is a graduating senior. She has applied for several positions and has had a few interviews. She had not heard from any employers, until one morning last week. On her way to class she received a call on her cell phone from HIHO Company who says: “Jane, you would be a great fit for our organization, you have all the skills and qualifications we are seeking in a candidate. If I offer you the job will you take it?” Jane is surprised and says “yes”. The employer congratulates her on accepting the position and indicates the official offer letter will be sent via FedEx the same day and to “please sign and return it”. Jane politely says “thank you”, hangs up and realizes she has just accepted a job; but she is still waiting to hear from a couple of organizations higher on her list. Two days later she receives an offer for her dream job. She calls HIHO and reneges on the offer. –What do you do? –How would you advise Jane? –How would you respond to HIHO Company? –What standards/policies do you communicate?
