Consider the following guidelines when accepting internship and job offers:

  • Do not accept multiple offers. If you are not interested in a particular offer at all, please let that employer know immediately.
  • Offers may not be negotiable.
  • Carefully consider the job offer. Consult with family or others before your offer expires.
  • Adhere to the agreed timeline for your offer.
  • You may contact the organization for an extension if you need more time. It will be the employer's decision whether to grant your request.
  • Once an offer is accepted, do not continue applying and interviewing for other positions.
  • If you have other pending offers, immediately notify those organizations that you have accepted another position.
  • Do not back out from an offer you have accepted. By not keeping your commitment, you will damage your professional reputation and that of UC Davis.
