NACE General Recruiting Guidelines: Principles for Professional Conduct: As part of the University's commitment to leadership in the area of ethics and professional conduct, we require employers utilizing Liberal Arts Career Services to adhere to employment laws and principles of professional practice, as outlined by the federal government and The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice, respectively. NACE's Principles for Professional Conduct:


Reasonable Offer Deadlines: Liberal Arts Career Services prohibits exploding offers in conjunction with on-campus recruiting in the College of Liberal Arts. Offers must remain open for a minimum of three weeks in order to provide the student with the time needed to consider the offer. NACE's Reasonable Offer Deadlines Guidelines:


Rescinding Offers: Liberal Arts Career Services strongly discourages rescinding internship or full-time job offers. If an employer must rescind an offer under exceptional circumstances, the employer should contact us so that we may facilitate the resulting conversation with the student. Likewise, students are strongly discouraged from reneging on an offer once accepted in writing. If a student reneges on an offer, please contact us so that we may contact the candidate. Reneging on offers is a violation of the terms of the LACS student agreement. NACE's Position Statement on Rescinded and Deferred Employment:


Hold Harmless Agreements: The University of Texas at Austin will not enter into a hold harmless agreement or indemnity agreement with an employer hosting a UT student intern. In addition, LACS advises students not to sign hold harmless or indemnity agreements with internship host organizations.
