Job Posting Policies

Additionally, it is recommended that employers provide candidates a minimum of two weeks from the date of offer to evaluate the opportunity for both internships and full-time positions.  For Co-op positions, a window of at least five-business days is preferred. We also encourage employers to consider requests for additional time on an individual basis. Offers made to students for positions should be made in writing. Verbal offers should be followed with written offers via email or post.
