Referral accommodations may be issued via phone or email when students in search of an on- or off-campus job opportunity are involved in appropriate academic activities that prevent them from appearing in person, such as internships or study abroad. Students must be prepared to provide up to six referral reference numbers.
Once referral reference numbers are given via phone or email, a Customer Service Specialist, Career Assistant (CA), or other designee will follow the same procedures set for an in-person referral request. After the job descriptions are explained to the student via phone or email and a student resume is saved in Cardinal Career Link, it will be determined whether the student is qualified for a job opportunity. The Customer Service Specialist, CA, or other designee will then confirm the student's Ball State email address and email the referral request form(s) for the qualified jobs to the student.
It is the student's responsibility to contact the hiring department or off-campus organization to schedule an interview. The Career Center will not contact the employer to schedule appointments on the student's behalf.
