OCR Guidelines and Policies for Employers:
Employers wishing to conduct interviews on-campus for full-time opportunities and paid internships may participate in our on-campus recruiting program. Once your reservation has been completed, you will be sent a confirmation by email with recommended accommodations, driving directions, and parking information.
The typical interview schedule for an employer conducting on-campus recruiting will begin at 9:00am and end at 5:00pm. A 30-minute interview schedule will allow 13 candidates per schedule; 45-minute interviews will allow 9 candidates per schedule; 60-minute interviews will allow 8 candidates per schedule. All schedules are flexible and may include breaks and a lunch hour. Please keep in mind that the Toppel Career Center caters lunch (at no cost) to all recruiters on the date(s) of your interviews.
Offer Deadline Policy:
The Toppel Career Center requires that you abide by the following offer policies to allow our students sufficient time to carefully consider their employment options and make informed decisions.
Summer: Full-time offers extended to students during the summer should expire no earlier than Fall Recess (UM Academic Calendar).
Fall: Full-time and internship offers extended to students during the Fall semester should expire no earlier than November 15th, or a minimum of three weeks after they are given (whichever comes later).
Spring: Full-time offers extended to students during the Spring semester should expire no earlier than two weeks after they are given. Internship offers should expire no earlier than the beginning of Spring Recess (UM Academic Calendar), or a minimum of two weeks after they are given (whichever comes later)
This will give our students sufficient time to explore their options and make as informed a decision as possible. In the end, we want you to obtain the best candidates and we want our students to have the best opportunities! In the spirit of collaboration, we hope that you will inform us of any offers made and also that you let us know of any of our students who renege on an acceptance of an internship or full-time job offer.
