"Along Came a Better Offer: Two Cases of Job Hunting Ethics," authored by Scott R. Hamula, associate professor and chair of the Department of Strategic Communication, was featured in the book, Media Ethics at Work, True Stories from Young Professionals, by editors Lee Anne Peck and Guy S. Reel, and published by SAGE CQ Press.
Hamula's case deals with two recently graduated students, Emily Parnell and Josh Murray, one who agreed to accept a position at a marketing services firm and the other who had just begun working for a media company. How each one chose to be quickly released so that she/he could accept another offer is where the case explores the ethical dilemmas and possibilities. Also included within the case are critical thinking questions, role-playing exercises, and an online resources section.
