Information for Employers
Business Begins With BU
We have two customers: highly qualified students and highly demanding recruiters. Our job is to bring them togther in optimal pairings.
Many of our staff are former recruiters, so we have a strong sense of what you need. Our dedicated Feld Career Center team will guide you through the recruiting process every step of the way. We’ll help you identify strategies to reach your target audience, arrange receptions, on-campus information sessions, and on-campus interviews, and help promote your organization to our students.

Employer Offer Guidelines
Boston University School of Management requests that employers adhere to the guidelines below in order for a student to make an informed decision on an offer for employment. In addition, all employment offers should be made in good faith. Should there be a need for your organization to defer a start date or rescind an offer of employment, we ask that you contact our office prior to notifying those students impacted by such a decision.
Offers Arising from a Summer Internship:
The Feld Career Center at Boston University’s School of Management requests that an employer extending a written offer of full-time employment to a student upon completion of a summer internship allow the student to render a decision of acceptance/rejection of the offer by the last business day of November.
Fall Offers for Full-time/Internship Employment the Following Summer:
Employers who extend written offers of employment during fall recruiting (for following summer start dates) allow students one month or until the last business day of November (whichever comes later) to render a decision of acceptance/rejection of the offer.
Spring Offers for Full-time/Internship Employment:
Employers who extend written offers of employment during spring recruiting (for summer start dates) allow students at least 2 weeks to render a decision of acceptance/rejection of the offer.
The Feld Career Center policies for employers help protect students. At the same time, maintaining our excellent relationship with employers means students also have a serious obligations once a job offer is accepted.
Our policy is that any student who accepts an offer from a company a) immediately notify the Feld Career Center and b) immediately notify all other companies (where they are being considered for employment) that they are no longer a viable candidate. In addition, they are to immediately cease the use of recruiting services with Boston University’s career services as well as any other independent and proprietary searches.
