How will Non-Academic Suspension affect Job/Internships Prospects?

I just found out I’m going to be suspended for a year due to a student conduct violation. My school states that it will be shown on my official transcript. I know that this will eliminate any chance of getting a good post-grad education, but am unsure of how drastically it will affect my job and internship prospects moving forward.

I was on the pre-med track before, but will likely pivot to biotech or computational biology if post-grad is off the table.

I’m assuming that since it will only be on my official transcript, recruiters won’t be aware of it until after extending an offer/hiring (and even then only if they request an official transcript), and from there may not rescind the offer if I explain the misconduct. Is this more or less correct?

Feel free to let me know if any more information is needed. Thanks!

There is often a question on job applications about having been suspended from a school for cause. You need to have a good answer to that question. It may help to hire a professional to help you answer that question.

What kind of professional would be able to help? Do you mean a headhunter/career coach or something similar to that?

I’m not sure about the jobs situation - are you talking about getting an internship now during your suspension? BTW, grad school is not off the table. Maybe medical school or law school would be difficult, maybe, but other programs (perhaps not the best) would take you. Even former felons can get into grad school .

I just mean anytime in the future as the mark goes on my transcript effective immediately. I’m aware that many opportunities don’t ask for a transcript at all, and I was unsure if such a mark would be a deal killer.

I’m not sure if I’ll need a masters/PhD for biotech, but I’m at a top 20 school with a 3.7 and lots of research experience so if that’s the case hopefully I can get into a decent program.
