Our purpose is to also promptly and consistently inform students of new opportunities weekly by posting descriptions and making public announcements around campus. Our goal is to aid and assist in the occupational search, and to be a firm foundation for your future.

Progressive Corrective Action
The progressive corrective action procedure is designed to identify and correct problems that may affect your work performance or the overall performance of your department. This process provides you and your supervisor with an opportunity to talk about specific problems, to determine when and how these problems can be corrected, and to agree to set goals and follow-up dates.
Progressive Corrective Action refers to these steps:
Step 1 - Counseling and/or verbal warning
Step 2 - Written warning
Step 3 - Suspension
Step 4 - Discharge
Depending on the situation, steps 1, 2 or 3 may be repeated, skipped or not followed in sequence. Each case is considered on an individual basis by your direct supervisor. The University retains the right to terminate your employment at any time for any reason not prohibited by law, without prior notice. In the case of serious infractions, you may, for example, be suspended and/or discharged on the first offense. Such serious infractions include, but are not limited to the following:
