Recruiting Policies and Guidelines
Guidelines for On-Campus Recruiting and Information Sessions/Tables
The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles of Conduct also apply to hiring and recruitment practices for these opportunities. If you would like more information on NACE please feel free to contact us or visit NACE’s web site www.naceweb.org.
Organizations that are ineligible to participate in on-campus recruiting or host information sessions or information tables include those organizations whose compensation is 100 percent commission, and those who require the candidate to pay a fee for training, equipment, application procedures, or other job related expenses (this does not apply to federal and state licensing requirements such as real estate, securities, etc). Organizations that are based on a networking marketing paradigm will also be ineligible to participate in recruitment programs.
- The Career Center will assist third party recruiters as long as the identity of the employer being represented and the types of positions for which the third party is recruiting are revealed to the Career Center and candidates, complies with federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) standards, and upholds the NACE Principles of Conduct. Third Party recruiters will not disclose to any employer, including the client-employer, any student information without obtaining prior written consent from the student.
- Companies may pre-screen candidates based upon a review of resumes. Resumes can be forwarded in advance of the recruitment date. Consideration should be afforded to all candidates without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
- Greeters may accompany the designated company representative. Organizations are responsible for the ethical and legal conduct of their representatives throughout the recruiting process, and must assume responsibility for all representations made by authorized representatives.
- Recruiters are expected to be as flexible as the recruitment process allows. High-pressure recruiting techniques are not acceptable. The serving of alcohol at any recruitment related event is not permissible.
- Internship/ fieldwork opportunities are defined as experiential education opportunities where a student works on a project of importance to the organization, receives timely instruction and feedback from the supervisor, and has a mentor-like relationship with someone within the organization. Internships/fieldwork are approved and supervised by the designated faculty. The Career Center staff works on behalf of the students to develop opportunities and assist students in identifying and preparing for the experience. Internships /fieldwork may be paid or unpaid.
- Companies invited to attend job/career fairs will reflect the educational programs and professional interests of Springfield College students. Employers participating in college sponsored fairs will comply with state and federal EEO standards and the NACE Principles for Professional Conduct.
- In accordance with Springfield College policy no individual or organization may solicit services, products or opportunities without the permission of the vice-president of student affairs. All flyers must be approved by the Student Activities office.
