The employer should contact the applicant within 5 days after the contact information has been provided.
Article 6.2 Invitation of the employer
- 6.2.1 An employer also has the option to invite students for a placement or graduation assignment by searching through Globalplacement's database himself. The employer can select specific students, watch their CV and profile, and personally invite them. The student profiles are available anonymously, meaning that the contact information of the students is not available. In order to accept a student and to receive his contact information, the employer needs to have paid registered account at Globalplacement.
- 6.2.2 When an employer accepts a student, Globalplacement will automatically send this student an email message. This email includes the company profile, the placement description and a link to the employer profile. Globalplacement sends the contact information of the student to the employer when the employer has paid his registration fee. Again, the employer is obliged to contact the student within 5 days after the contact information has been provided.

- 6.3.2 If there is no acceptation, the vacancy will still have a deadline of 3 months and there will be no costs attached. If the employer accepts a student after the placement vacancy has been put offline, the agreed fee will still be charged.
Article 6.4 Active search task: Globalplacement searches actively and focuses on internships/graduation assignments

The employer should also inform Globalplacement about the situation and give an explanation as quickly as possible. However, this cancellation will not result in any responsibility or liability whatsoever for Globalplacement.
Article 9. After the internship/graduation assignment
- 9.1 When the established agreement between the employer and the student, regarding the internship/graduation assignment, ends the employer is free to make new arrangements with the student without having to use the website of Globalplacement and without having to pay Globalplacement.
- 9.2 An exception to this rule exists when the employer places a new vacancy on the website and invites a student on the basis of his or her profile.

Article 10. Use of the data by Globalplacement
- 10.1 The data inserted by the employer can be changed and updated on the personal page which can be opened by the employer with his/her own username and password.
