Job & Internship Offer Policy

University of Notre Dame Career Services requires students to sign a contract of job search ethics prior to participating in any on-campus interviews.  Students are penalized for missing interviews, canceling appointments, etc.  Career Services enforces a zero tolerance policy for students who renege on offers of employment or who conduct themselves unethically during their search.  In return, Career Services asks employers to:

  • Provide students a minimum of three business days’ notice for an off-campus interview.  This allows students to make proper travel arrangements to avoid academic and other conflicts.
  • Provide fair and reasonable time periods for students to evaluate employment offers prior to making a decision that will affect their future careers and personal lives.  Asking a student if he or she is ready to make a decision on the spot, or asking a student to respond to a hypothetical offer is considered unacceptable practice.  Exploding offers put undue pressure on students and compromise our efforts to enforce student policy against reneging.
  • Uphold job offers.  Rescinding an offer means the student must restart their job search, often after declining other offers.
