ACCEPTING AN OFFER

This is a very important decision that should not be rushed.  If you need more time to make a decision, ask.  Employers will make every effort to give you the time you need, if they are able. 

When you accept a job offer -- verbally or in writing -- it is a commitment.  It is not okay to continue interviewing in case there is a better opportunity.  (You would not want the employer to continue interviewing in case there is a better candidate!)  Remove yourself immediately from the interview process.

How you handle yourself during this stage of the search is critical.  Employers communicate with one another.  A mistake could be costly to you as a new professional and can have far reaching consequences for NC State.  Employers have terminated relationships with universities as a result.
