The Carleton Career Center is an equal opportunity employer in compliance with the Carleton College non-discrimination rules and policies which prohibit recruitment and selection for position openings on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age.

Offer Policy

Since informed decisions benefit both students and employer partners, we recommend students be given at least two weeks weeks from offer receipt to deadline. Students should not be penalized for waiting until the deadline to accept. We believe the best decisions for students and employer partners are those that are made with the best information and the least amount of pressure possible, which results in truly committed employees.

When students receive a full-time offer after a summer internship, we recommend that students be given until at least November 1st to make a decision, and that students should not be penalized for waiting until the deadline to accept.

For more information or questions, please refer to National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) policy on Reasonable Offers, or contact Carleton College’s Career Center via phone at (507) 222-4293 or via email at

Third Party Agencies

Recruiting on campus as a third party recruiter (on behalf of another organization) must disclose the hiring organization that they represent in job/intern postings in Handshake. Any exceptions to this policy must be pre-approved by the Career Center.


The Carleton Career Center reserves the right to deny any employer or recruiter access to the services offered by the career center.
