Offer Policies

Deadlines

Full-time employment offers: For full-time offers made at the end of the summer to interns, we ask you to give students until December 1 so that they may participate in full-time on-campus recruiting during the fall semester.

Internship offers: For internship offers to first-year students prior to internship recruiting in January, we ask you to give students until February 15 so that they may participate in on-campus internship recruiting and explore their options. This applies to offers received at the diversity conferences, as well.

Decisions: We ask that employers give students a minimum of three weeks from the date the offer is made or until the dates outlined above (whichever date is later) to make their decision.

All Offers

Communicate decisions to candidates within a reasonable timeframe and refrain from exploding offers, which are not condoned by Kelley Graduate Career Services. Exploding offers do not give candidates an appropriate amount of time to accept or decline, putting enormous pressure on students to make a decision before they have completed the interviewing process. This behavior also exacerbates reneging on offers. We understand that firms need to know their hiring needs prior the start of recruiting—however, we believe it is in the firm’s and students’ best interest if students are granted ample time to make informed decisions.

Rescinding an offer

If you must rescind an offer, contact the student immediately. Also contact Kelley Graduate Career Services so that we can provide job search assistance to the student. Consider offering the affected candidate financial assistance, outplacement services, or other equitable compensation.

Student reneges

Reneging on an internship or full-time offer is a serious breach of Kelley Graduate Career Services recruiting policies and ethics code. Should this occur, contact us immediately. We take this matter very seriously and may choose to engage the Conduct Review Committee.

Deadlines

Internship and full-time employment offers: We ask you to give students the following deadlines to accept or decline an offer:

Fall recruiting: November 1

Spring recruiting: March 1

Converting interns to full time

If you offer students a full-time opportunity after they complete an internship, we ask that you give them three weeks from the date of the written offer to accept or decline.
