Accept/ Decline Invitation FAQ
On December 4th you will be able to view the employer selections. Below are some common questions regarding the procedure to accept or decline the employer invitations.
1. How do I know if I have been selected for an interview?
Under the “Employers/Bidding” tab you will see your applications/bid list and an “Invitations” column. Each bid should indicate one of the following in the “Invitations” column: Accept Pre-Select, Accept Alternate, or Not Invited. The “Invitations” column will be blank for those employers who did a Resume Collection. You may be contacted directly by employers in order to set up an interview date.
2. How do I accept or decline an invitation?
Click on the Accept Pre-select button if you would like to accept your pre-select invitation. Priority is given to pre-select candidates and you are guaranteed an interview as long as you have available time on your schedule.
Click on the Accept Alternate button if you would like to accept your alternate invitation. You are not guaranteed an interview as an alternate but an interview will be scheduled if there is availability on the employer’s schedule (and on your own schedule).
Click on the Decline button if you do not want to accept the invitation.
3. Can I change my decision?
You are ONLY able to change your Accepted decisions to Declines during the Accept/Decline period. You are unable to change once you decline an interview.
4. What will happen if I do not accept or decline during the Acceptance/Decline period
All invitations will default to an Accept and you will be scheduled for an interview. Once scheduled, you are expected to attend the interview. Please make sure you make your selections before the period ends.
5. I did not apply to a listed employer, why did they pre-select me for an interview?
Employers who select candidates through the Opt-In Resume Book will be included in the Accept/Decline period. You will receive an email from the Assistant Director of Recruiting (Interview Program Manager) alerting you to this selection.
6. What is the deadline to accept or decline?
You will have from December 21 (12:00 PM New York time) to January 4 (5:00 PM New York time) to make all decisions.
