What is the recommended Offer Deadline Policy for employers?
We encourage employers to be understanding and willing to give students ample time to carefully consider all of their employment options in order to make informed decisions. Lehman College students are also encouraged to pursue opportunities in which they are genuinely interested, and to evaluate all extended job offers thoughtfully and carefully. To establish a fair, competitive and ethical recruitment environment for both students and employers, The Career Exploration & Development Center requests that organizations use the following offer guidelines:
Summer Internship Conversion
For offers of full time employment extended to summer interns, offers should remain open until October 10th
Full Time Jobs and Internships
For all other offers of full time employment and internships, offers should be open for a period of three weeks
If your hiring timeline falls outside of these preferred windows, and/or a student may ask for an extension or exception to these dates:
We expect employers will:
- Communicate hiring timelines clearly and as early as possible
- Demonstrate flexibility in working with students to consider reasonable requests
- Not place undue pressure on students to make offer decisions
We expect students will:
- Not accept offers for employment while continuing to pursue other opportunities
- Make requests for reasonable accommodations in a timely manner
- Work under the advisement of CEDC and inform us of any instances in which our stated offer dates cannot be met
