Extending An Offer

Undergrad Guidelines

Extending an Offer

We realize employers have strict deadlines to find qualified employees, but we ask that employers adhere to the guidelines in order for applicants to make responsible and carefully considered decisions.

When offered a position, applicants shall be given a reasonable time period to respond to such offers. Applying high-pressure techniques such as exploding salary bonuses and/or unreasonably short deadlines in order to persuade students or alumni to accept job offers should not be used.

Rescinding an Offer

If a firm must withdraw an offer for any reason, contact Mike Roberts at the Business Career Center as soon as possible so we may offer assistance to the firm and the student.
