EECS Policies and Guidelines for Employers

UCB EECS CAP Recruiting and Hiring Policies for Employers

In this competitive job market, we recommend the following guidelines to assist employers and to provide students a fair opportunity during the offer phase of the recruiting process for internships and full-time positions. We encourage a professional exchange in a timely manner for both parties following the policies and guidelines set by UC Berkeley Career Center as outlined below. For more details, please visit https://career.berkeley.edu/Employers/EmpPolicy.

Exploding Offers

The UC Berkeley Career Center defines an exploding offer as any offer which does not conform with the offer guidelines listed above. Students should not be pressured to accept offers “on the spot” or "early,” whether this is based upon a shorter timeframe for consideration overall and/or due to any special diminishing incentives attached, e.g., tiered or expiring bonuses, reduced options for location preferences, etc. The Career Center expects all employers to refrain from such practices when recruiting Cal students and alumni.

The EECS Department requires that any recruiting organization or individual utilizing our services must abide by all applicable federal, state, and local employment laws, including Equal Employment Opportunity laws, University of California rules and regulations, and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals.

Employment and Event Opportunities Postings

Effective March 1, 2015, the EECS department will only post job listings and event opportunities for companies who are members of the Corporate Access Program (CAP). These postings will appear on the EECS Student Job Listings website. If you are not a member of CAP, you can post employment or event opportunities at no charge on the Callisto job listing website which is sponsored by the Berkeley Career Center.
