Once a student has interviewed for a position on campus, employers expect the student to follow up on their candidacy with them directly. There is an expectation that you will send a thank you letter/ note within 24 hours of your interview. During your interview, it is important to get the interviewer’s business card and determine who to contact for follow-up purposes. Please contact the employer directly for information on second interviews and hiring decisions. Report any employer practices that may violate professional and ethical practices immediately to a Career Center Staff member.
Make sure to complete an evaluation form before leaving the career center.
The staff of the Hegi Family Career Development Center concurs with the judgment of the Principles for Professional Conduct Committee of the National Association of Colleges and Employers that "the best employment decisions are those made with the greatest amount of information." Further, "students given sufficient amount of time to gather thorough information related to all available job opportunities are more likely to make good long-term employment decisions and less likely to renege on job acceptances." The staff of the Career Center also acknowledges the desirability by employers for having definite timeframes for the acceptance and rejection of offers by students.
Therefore, to provide students with sufficient time to make a considered employment decision and to allow employers the flexibility needed to compete for talent, the Career Center recommends that employment offers extended to students for full-time employment should remain open for a minimum period of two weeks.
