Offer Policy for Full-Time Employment and Internships
We recognize that many employers want to make offers to summer interns. However, forcing a student to make a hasty decision pertaining to permanent employment precludes his or her exploration of other options. This can lead to reneging on job offers, which is against our policy guidelines. Therefore, to create a more positive image of employers recruiting on campus and to ensure that students have the opportunity to make sound decisions, all employers participating in the On-Campus Recruiting Program must follow these guidelines.
We expect employers to honor all offers made to students and that no conditions will be placed on the offer (e.g., "We have 8 offers outstanding for 6 openings and will accept the first 6 students who get back to us," etc.). No incentives (e.g. exploding offers) may be offered to induce students to accept offers early.
Students receiving offers for Summer 2014 employment from recruiting employers as a result of their Summer 2013 internship must be given until December 2, 2013 to make a decision on their offer or option.
