Recruiting Policies

Lafayette Career Services is committed to working with employers who do not discriminate on the basis of gender, age, race, religion, national origin, physical ability or sexual orientation. Lafayette Career Services also adheres to the NACE Principles for Professional Practice.

NACE Principles for Professional Practice

Career Services and employment professionals are involved in an important mutually rewarding process. We help students choose and attain personally rewarding careers, and ensure that employers develop effective college relations programs resulting in effective candidate selections for their organizations. This process requires commitment by practitioners to principles for professional practice. The following is excerpted from NACE’s statement of Principles for Employment Professionals and posted with permission.

Employment Professionals will:

  • Maintain confidentiality of student information, regardless of the source, including personal knowledge, written records/reports and computer databases.
  • Have knowledge of the recruitment and career development field as well as the industry and the employing organizations that they represent, and work within a framework of professionally accepted recruiting, interviewing, and selection techniques.
  • Refrain from any practice that improperly influences and affects job acceptances.
  • Provide accurate information on their organization and employment opportunities.
  • Maintain equal employment opportunity (EEO) compliance and follow affirmative action principles in recruiting activities.
  • Cooperate with the policies and procedures of the career services office, including certification of EEO compliance as well as compliance with all federal and state employment regulations.
  • Honor scheduling arrangements and recruitment commitments.
  • when recruiting for international operations do so according to EEO and U.S. labor law standards.

Neither employment professionals nor their organizations will expect, or seek to extract, special favors or treatment which would influence the recruitment process, or the level of support, to the educational institution or career services office in the form of contributed services, gifts, or other financial support.

Serving alcohol should not be part of the recruitment process, either on or off campus.

Those engaged in administering, evaluating, and interpreting assessment tools, employment screening tests, and technology used in selection will be trained and qualified to do so.

When employment professionals conduct recruitment activities through student associations or academic departments, such activities will be conducted in accordance with the policies of the Office of Career Services.

If you have questions about these policies, please contact Nanette Cooley.
