Job Offer Policy

  • To ensure that employers participating in on-campus interviews have equitable access to job candidates, offer timelines, for both internship and full-time offers, should not preempt a student’s ability to participate in the on-campus recruiting (OCR) process. Yale SOM recommends that students be allowed a decision period of four weeks during this time. (The OCR period is loosely defined as October-November for full-time offers and January-February for internship offers.) An offer made from a summer internship should be left open until November 26th.
  • As the on-campus period draws to a close, it is reasonable to expect a shorter timeframe for a candidate decision. If at any time a student feels that the amount of time granted is not sufficient for him/her to make a decision, the student should communicate to the firm how much time is required and why the time is needed. If the timeframe is still insufficient after this conversation, please contact the CDO to discuss next steps.
