Offer Policy

Job Offer Calendar 2021-22

The Meruelo Family Center for Career Development (CCD) has established the following expectations to provide a successful experience for both students and employers participating in on-campus recruiting. 

Expectations for Students

Students are expected to:

  • attend scheduled interviews;
  • provide professional advance notice of interview schedule changes;
  • withdraw from any recruiting process they do not intend to fully pursue for an offer; and, 
  • honor their commitments to accepting employment offers which abide by the timelines listed below.

Students will be held accountable for any violations of these expectations.

Expectations for Employers

We ask employers participating in on-campus recruiting to please respect and adhere to the following:

  • Off-campus Interview Scheduling - provide students with a minimum three business days notice for an off-campus interview. This time is critical for students to arrange travel and rearrange academic and/or other leadership commitments.
  • Uphold Job Offers - rescinding an offer means the student must restart their search and it damages the credibility of your organization with the student body. If there is a special circumstance where you think an offer must be withdrawn, please contact your assigned Employer Engagement Manager in the CCD.
  • Offer Timeline - provide fair and reasonable time for students to respond to an offer. This decision impacts both their future professional and personal life. 

Employers will be held accountable for any violations of these expectations.

Timelines for 2022 Offers

The University of Notre Dame aligns our expectations for timelines of offers with guidance from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which states: “offer deadlines will be influenced by the available candidate pool, the available recruitment opportunities, and anticipated staffing needs. Definitions of sufficient time for these offer deadlines will vary, given industry standards, students’ experience with the employer, offer timing, students’ career interests, and proximity to graduation date/start time.”

The dates listed below are intended to balance the needs of students to make informed decisions on career plans, while also providing employers sufficient time to recruit students.

The CCD is available to support students who are navigating accelerated recruitment timelines. Students are strongly encouraged to contact the CCD immediately upon receiving an offer of employment which does not align with the dates listed below.
