Recruiting Guidelines

Computer Science - Hiring Guidelines

To allow our students the opportunity to make informed decisions when evaluating a job or internship offer, TXST has created the following guidelines. These guidelines are intended to help both students and employers manage the offering process and to align with our peer institutions. We ask that employers hiring our students honor the timelines outlined below.


· Deadline for return offers: October 15 or two weeks (whichever is later)

· Deadline for new offers: October 31st or two weeks (whichever is later)


· Two weeks from the offer.

General Guidance

To Employers: We recommend being flexible in granting offer extensions on a case-by-case basis if the circumstances warrant it.

To Students: We encouraged you to contact employers directly if you have any questions or concerns about your offer, including needing more time to make the decisions. Students are not REQUIRED to wait until these deadlines and may accept an offer at any time.

Exploding Offers:

TXST expects employers to withhold from practices such as exploding offers. Students should not feel pressured to accept offers “on the spot” or within a quick or unreasonable turnaround time.
