Only currently enrolled Villanova undergraduates and graduate students are eligible to participate in the Campus Recruiting Program. Employers are expected to maintain the confidentiality of student information, regardless of the source (including personal knowledge, written records/reports, social networking websites and computer databases).
If a student fails to sign up for an on-campus interview time, the student loses their interview time. Their account will be locked until they meet with a member of the Recruiting team. An alternate will be notified to sign up for the open slot.
If a student doesn’t show up for their interview, they will be ineligible to participate in the campus recruiting program or resume referral programs until they meet with a member of the Recruiting team. A letter of apology must be sent to the company recruiter.
A student will lose their recruiting privileges if they have two offenses during the academic year.
Students need sufficient time to make informed decisions when comparing and responding to job offers. The following recruiting job offer policies have been created for full-time, internship and externship offers to create overall fairness to all participating parties. These time frames should assist employers in planning their recruitment strategy and allow both employers and students the opportunity to participate fully during the recruiting season.
Exploding offers, those made with undue pressure and insufficient time to respond, are strictly prohibited.
Employers extending full-time job offers at the completion of the student’s Spring or Summer internship are asked to give the student until October 15 to respond to that offer. Bonuses and other incentives associated with the offer should not expire before this date.
Any student who has interned with an employer and is made an internship offer for the following year should be given until October 15 to respond to the offer.
Any student who has completed an externship (excluding nursing externships) or attended a leadership program with an employer and is made an internship offer for the following year should be given until December 1 to respond to the offer.
Employers conducting interviews during the Fall semester are asked to give students until December 1, or a minimum of three weeks from the date of the offer (whichever is later), to respond to that offer without pressure on an earlier date.
Employers conducting interviews during the Spring semester for full-time positions or internships should give students a minimum of three weeks to make their final decision.
Students do not have to wait until the policy deadline to accept an offer but should be sensitive to employer needs and accept offers in a reasonable time.
Reneges are never permitted or condoned by the Career Center. Reneging on an offer is a serious violation of The Career Center’s policy, and will result in immediate suspension of all recruiting privileges and the student’s Handshake account is de-activated. Violators will be required to meet with a representative from the Career Center, their Academic Chairperson and/or Dean. Future recruiting privileges will be determined after this meeting.
