Within two weeks of each interview - sooner, if possible - employers must inform students of their status, which may be any of the following:
- offer of employment
- invitation to next-round interview
- application process on hold
For offer dates, please see:
Conditional offers ("If you convince me that you would accept an offer if it were made, you'll get one") do not give the student time to evaluate properly and are unacceptable.
Companies are expected to make thoughtful hiring decisions and to honor all offers made to our students. If a company must revisit an offer due to adverse business conditions or other unforeseen circumstances, we ask that you first contact Bruce Lloyd, Director of Employer Relations, at (212) 854-5471 to review the situation.
Rescinding an accepted offer, withdrawing an offer before the student has accepted, or changing the terms of an offer carries significant consequences for all parties involved in the recruiting process. Generally, students and alumni learn of these unfortunate situations, which cast a negative light on the reputation of the organization.
