Pitt Business Student Recruiting Policy
The College of Business Administration follows the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles of Conduct. Employers are encouraged to review and abide by the U.S. Department of Labor Guidelines for Unpaid Internships. For those organizations participating in recruiting, the Career Development office requests that you abide by the following job acceptance policy to allow students sufficient time to make informed decisions about their employment options:
Offers for Next Academic Year:
- Offers made to students for internships or full-time positions for the next academic year, the offer should remain open until October 1
Internship to Full-Time Offers:
- Offers made to students for full-time positions after an internship, students should be given 3 weeks or until November 1, whichever comes later
- Offers made to students (internship or full-time), students should be given 3 weeks or until November 1, whichever comes later
- Offers made to students (internship or full-time) in the spring semester should be given 3 weeks or until April 1, which ever comes later
Pitt Business Career Development will encourage students to immediately release offers they do not plan to accept. Reneging on an offer is considered a breach of our recruiting policy and such action will receive immediate attention.
Students and employers are encouraged to contact Pitt Business Career Development should a breach in the recruiting policy occur. We are committed to working on behalf of the students and the employers to ensure that all adhere to the guidelines set forth in this policy.
