Accepting a Job Offer


A job or internship acceptance is a major commitment to your employer. You should only make this type of commitment if you intend to honor it. Once you accept an employment offer, whether through On-Campus Recruiting, Bobcat CareerLink, or your own independent job search, you are expected to completely withdraw from the job search process. If you are uncertain about whether or not to accept an offer or need advice on managing multiple offers, consult with a Career and Leadership Development Center staff member. Reneging on a job offer is unprofessional and impacts Ohio University's reputation in the employment community as well as your own. Should you renege on an job offer you will be suspended from Bobcat Careerlink until you meet with the Career and Leadership Development Center to discuss the matter.
