Tuck COVID-19 Information and Campus Updates

Policies

BID POLICY

Tuck has a 75/25 bid policy for internship on-campus interviews.
This means your company may pre-select up to 75% of the students you wish to interview, and the remainder of your slots will be scheduled through a competitive student bidding process.

Full-time interviews at Tuck do not carry a bidding requirement, and therefore are 100% pre-selected by the company.

JOB-OFFER RESPONSE TIME POLICY

Tuck’s policy on job-offer response time is intended to meet the needs of both recruiters and students, and is similar to policies held by other MBA programs.

Second-Year Students

The second-year deadline for return offers received from on-campus internships and full-time on-campus recruiting is November 30, 2020 or three weeks from the offer date, whichever is longer. Offers must remain open until this date.

First-Year Students

The first-year deadline for offers received from on-campus recruiting is February 12, 2021 or three weeks from the offer date, whichever is longer. Offers must remain open until this date.

CANCELLATIONS

Please alert Tuck Career Services if you need to cancel your event.
If your event also included catering, we require notice of at least 48 hours in order to cancel with the Catering Office. After this time, cancellation is at the discretion of the Catering Office and any costs will be billed to the company.

HIRING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Are international students legally authorized to work in the U.S.?

Yes, international students in F-1 status may qualify for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) during the summer internship period and may be eligible for F-1 post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) for up to 12 months following degree completion. Students with an MBA concentration in a STEM field of study may be eligible for an extension of OPT for an additional 24 months under the STEM OPT provisions.

Do I have to complete any paperwork for CPT, OPT OR AT?

For CPT, the student will work with Dartmouth’s Office of Visa and Immigration Services to obtain work authorization based on a qualifying internship. For post-completion OPT, the student will apply for work authorization directly with the Department of Homeland Security. There is no paperwork required from the employer. 

For the STEM OPT extension, the student and the employer must complete the Form I-983 STEM OPT Training Plan prior to the student’s application to the Department of Homeland Security. The employer must be enrolled in the government’s E-Verify Program and must agree to certain reporting obligations throughout the STEM OPT period.  Information for STEM OPT employers can be found on the Study in the States website.

What about long-term employment?

For employment that will extend beyond a student’s post-completion OPT or STEM OPT authorization, an employer would need to explore other employment-based nonimmigrant visa options. The most common temporary worker visa classification, known as the H-1B, can be obtained for up to six years. The H-1B petition process can take several months to complete, although employers have the option to pay an additional filing fee to the Department of Homeland Security for “premium processing” expedited adjudication.  The H-1B category is subject to annual quotas. However, Tuck students have a distinct advantage in that they may be eligible to apply under the advanced degree cap, a separate quota of an additional 20,000 H-1B visa numbers available to beneficiaries who hold Masters and PhD degrees from U.S. institutions. It is advisable to consider seeking legal advice to secure and strategize the very precise and detailed H-1B petition process.
