Collect Don’t Accept

Keep calm collect

Collect many accept one

It is perfectly acceptable to collect multiple offers from employers.  After all, the goal is to collect as many as offers as possible, review your options and make the decision that is most suitable for your needs. Collecting offers should not be confused with accepting offers.  Accepting an offer is a verbal or written agreement to join an organization as an intern, co-op or full-time employee.  It is NOT OK to accept more than one offer with competing starting dates.  For many schools this constitutes a violation of their offer acceptance policy. Accepting multiple offers reflects poorly on your  professional reputation and academic institution. It is also  unethical.  Engage in your search efforts with vigor, enthusiasm and the goal of securing at least one offer that is suitable to your needs, however refrain from agreeing to join more than one company in positions that have similar or competing start dates.   Collect as many offers as you can and ACCEPT only ONE.
