Recruitment Policies & Guidelines

Second Round Interviews  

In an effort to minimize scheduling conflicts for our students, we request that second-round interviews taking place at an off-campus site be scheduled at least two weeks after the on-campus interview date. Should you attempt to host second-round interviews (on-site) during the same week as your first-round interviews, your acceptance rate might be lower than anticipated. If you have questions regarding procedures or policies not addressed here, please contact the Employer Engagement & Programming team at [[hirethetribe]] or 757-221-7535.  

Alcohol Policy  

The Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement adheres to the NACE policy, which states that serving alcohol should not be a part of the recruitment process. Therefore, all recruiting activities, including all information sessions, should be alcohol-free.  

Corporate Activities and Solicitation  

William & Mary appreciates and welcomes the relationships that different university constituents have with corporations and governmental and nonprofit organizations. Specifically, the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement seeks to build upon existing relationships and to work with new employers to facilitate their hiring of William & Mary students. To enable these interactions, the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement plans and executes many events throughout the year aimed at increasing student awareness of these organizations and giving employers access to the William & Mary student population. Such events include the Fall and Spring Career & Internship Fairs, information sessions, coffee chats, and on-campus interviews. It is imperative that organizations work with the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement to plan such events to maximize the exposure they receive through appropriate advertising and avoidance of conflicting events.  

As William & Mary prohibits any commercial selling or solicitation on campus that is not sponsored or sanctioned by the University, the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement requests that organizations do not utilize student groups or student contacts to facilitate such commercial endeavors. This would include utilizing recruitment tables in the Sadler Center to provide handouts or giveaways to sell goods or services.  Any questions about this policy should be directed to [[hirethetribe]] or 757-221-7535.
