Best Practices for Posting At GW
To ensure students have the opportunity to make well‐informed, thoughtful decisions regarding job opportunities, the F. David Fowler Career Center asks that employers give students ample time to consider all offers. We encourage employers to follow NACE Guidelines and the following timelines for GW:
- Candidates who receive full‐time offers of employment from summer internships should be given until October 30th to accept/decline offers.
- Students who receive full-time offers of employment from fall recruiting should be given until November 15th to accept/decline offers.
- Students who have interviews after November 15th should be given a minimum of four weeks from the date of the offer to accept/decline.
- Students who receive internship offers from fall recruiting should be given a minimum of four weeks from the date of the offer to accept/decline offer.
- Students who receive full-time offers of employment from winter/spring recruiting should be given until March 15th to accept/decline.
- Students who have interviews after March 15th should be given a minimum of four weeks from the date of the offer to accept/decline.
- Students who receive internship offers from winter/spring recruiting should be given a minimum of four weeks from the date of the offer to accept/decline.
Job offers for both full-time and internship opportunities should be made through an offer letter sent directly to the student. The F. David Fowler Career Center asks to be notified of offers as well, to ensure staff can work with students to ensure they adhere to student policies regarding offers and hires. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, please contact our Employer Relations team at [email protected].
We will work with you to help identify a pool of candidates who closely match your job criteria, however, employment law and our strong sense of ethics preclude any arbitrary recommendation of one student over another.
Changes to Offer
The George Washington University School of Business expects all employers to honor their job offers. In the event that an offer must be withdrawn or changed, the Executive Director of the F. David Fowler Career Center must be contacted immediately. Students are also responsible for honoring the commitments they have made, whether verbally or in writing. If we learn they have failed to honor their commitments, their access to the Career Center’s resources and opportunities will be affected.
The George Washington University does not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national or ethnic origin, marital status, veteran status, or disability in admission to, access to, treatment in, or employment in its programs and activities.
