First-Year Recruiting Period
We ask that first-year students have a window of academic acclimation and an opportunity to learn about myriad career paths before recruiting begins. First-year recruiting events should not be held before the recruiting period begins. For the 2016–17 academic year, first-year recruiting events start on October 17, 2016.
We ask that no internship interviewing take place on- or off-campus - and hence, no internship offers be extended - before the campus recruiting period begins. For the 2016–17 academic year, first-year interviews start on January 10, 2017. If a company has a truly compelling reason to interview early (such as Chinese New Year), we will permit interviews as early as November 28, 2016, provided interviews do not take place during final exams (December 5–10, 2016).
This policy gives employers equal access to qualified candidates, gives students equal access to interesting positions, allows students to participate in our entire job search preparatory program, and protects students from making premature commitments that undermine the integrity of the job search process for all participants.
