Accepting & Declining Job Offers

Congratulations, you've received an offer of a job or internship! 

The hardest part of the job search might be over but you still need to make an important decision - so take some time to give it serious thought. Don't accept a job offer on the spot! Make sure you weigh your choices carefully and ensure that you are making the best possible choice for your career goals. If you have other offers pending that are higher on your priority list, contact those employers to let them know about your new offer so that they have a chance to respond. 

Remember, once you accept an offer, you are obligated to that position even if you get a better offer later. As always, you are more than welcome to stop by the Co-op Office to talk through your options!

Accepted a position already? Whether it's a post-graduation job, an internship, or a co-op position, please let us know by filling out this short Job Update Form.  And if you've been hired as a full-time co-op student, you must stop by our office to register for the 0-credit co-op class, ENCO 098 or 099!
