Student Responsibilities in Recruiting

In order to maximize opportunities for Dartmouth students and to preserve the integrity of this program, we have developed the set of policies below. Failure to comply may result in the loss of recruiting privileges.


Students who participate in any application process supported by Center for Professional Development (employment or graduate school) must accurately represent their academic and personal history on all documentation submitted as part of their application. Any student who misrepresents any information will lose the support of Center for Professional Development in all future application processes and will be referred to the undergraduate Judicial Affairs Office for further disciplinary action. It is each student's responsibility to make sure he or she is accurately representing himself or herself. See Steps to Participate in Recruiting for instructions on creating accurate materials.

**IMPORTANT** Students must be living in Hanover for the term in order to sign up for On-Campus Interview time slots (through DartBoard). If you sign up for an On-Campus Interview during a term in which you are off campus on a leave term, this is considered misrepresentation. Please note: Students who are off campus on a leave term MAY APPLY for these opportunities by following the Instructions for Off-Campus Candidates. These students are expected to arrange for interviews either by phone or at the employer's work site.

Interview Scheduling

Students are expected to put academics first. Interviews should be scheduled around academic commitments. Students should sign up for interviews based on sincere interest, not "practice." In addition, students are expected to negotiate second-round and subsequent interview dates/times so that there is no conflict with academics and previously scheduled first-round interviews. If you feel that an employer is pressuring you to take a second round interview at a date/time that causes difficulty, contact our office immediately, so that we can help.


You may change or cancel your interview time slot up until 7:00 am TWO BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR to your interview (e.g. 7:00 am Thursday for a Monday interview). Neither changes nor cancellations are accepted after that point, as final schedules have been confirmed with employers. To change or cancel an interview, refer to the tutorial "How to Cancel or Switch On-Campus Interviews in DartBoard." Do not contact employers directly to change or cancel on-campus interviews.

No Shows

Not showing up for an interview will seriously jeopardize further participation in the recruiting program. Students are expected to call Center for Professional Development in case of emergency. Unless you have cancelled your interview by 7:00 am TWO BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR, you will be considered a "no show" and will not be permitted to continue interviews without clearance from Center for Professional Development.

Deadlines for Offer Decisions

In order to provide students with sufficient time to complete their employment search and make an informed decision, employers participating in our Recruiting Program have agreed to comply with the following deadlines for the 2013-2014 academic year. No exploding bonuses should be offered for early acceptances.

Entry-Level Offers:

  • Fall offers extended to former interns - November 17, 2014
  • Offers extended from Fall 2014 On-Campus Interviews - November 17, 2014 or 2 WEEKS from date of offer, whichever is LATER
  • Winter offers extended to former interns – February 27, 2015
  • Offers extended from Winter 2015 On-Campus Interviews - February 27, 2015
  • Offers extended from Resume Drops - 2 weeks from date of offer

Internship Offers:

  • Students have a minimum of 1 full week to decide on offers for the next term (e.g. summer offer for fall term)
  • Spring, Summer or Fall interviews – minimum of 2 weeks to decide on offers for two terms ahead
  • Winter Interviews - minimum of 3 full weeks to decide on summer term
  • Summer offers extended to former interns – Feb. 17, 2015 or 3 weeks from date of offer, whichever is LATER

Reneging on Offers:

After a job or internship offer is accepted, a student must stop all further interviewing and immediately notify employers with whom s/he has an offer or interview pending. Any student who accepts an offer obtained through the Recruiting Program, then withdraws the acceptance (i.e. reneges on an offer), will immediately lose all future recruiting privileges.
