Students attend an ILR Career FairIt's a good idea to notify the hiring manager of your decision to accept an offer by telephone, and then follow with a written confirmation of your acceptance. Once you've accepted an offer, don't look back. Notify all other employers you've been talking with of your decision, and cease all job-search activity at this point. It is not ethical behavior to continue negotiating with other employers or to reneg on an offer after you've accepted a job.
