On-campus Recruiting Policies
The Marquette University Career Services Center invites employer organizations to recruit at Marquette provided they conform to the Career Services Center's recruiting policies. Recruiting efforts include engaging in any recruitment activity including but not limited to creating an account in Handshake, posting position openings, attending career fairs and events, offering information sessions and events (either on- or off-campus), hosting publicity tables, conducting on campus interviews, and visiting/presenting in classrooms. By recruiting Marquette University students, you and your organization agree to accept and comply with the recruiting policies of the Marquette University Career Services Center as outlined below.
NACE PRINCIPLES FOR ETHICAL PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
The Marquette University Career Services Center requires that employer organizations be familiar with and adhere to the Principles for Ethical Professional Practice as outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in 2017.
EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY
Employer organizations recruiting Marquette students, including using the university's job board (Handshake), must comply with all applicable laws relating to equal employment opportunity (EEO) and may not discriminate against a job applicant because of his or her race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, military or veteran status, genetic information, marital status, parental status, political or personal favoritism, ancestry, source of income or any other classes protected by local, state and federal law. Federal law also prohibits citizenship status and national origin discrimination with respect to hiring, termination, and recruiting, or referring for a fee. Visit EEOC and the Department of Justice for additional information on prohibited EEO practices.
ON CAMPUS RECRUITING
Employers recruiting on campus must be sponsored by the Marquette University Career Services Center or another office on campus to ensure all policies and procedures are followed.
Employer organizations must have actual or anticipated valid, career-related full-time, internship or co-op opportunities for students and alumni. The organization must accurately describe the responsibilities and requirements for the opportunities it offers in all publicity, including online job postings and information sessions. All conditions for advertised positions must be clearly publicized in the position description. This includes, but is not limited to, positions that are commission-based, involve out-of-pocket financial expenses, test taking, etc. Please see the Marquette University Career Services Center's Job, Internship & Co-op Posting Guidelines for additional conditions.
The Marquette University Career Services Center does not oversee recruitment for student worker or part-time positions, such as camp counselor, nanny, restaurant server, babysitter, concession stand worker, etc. These non-career related positions may be posted through the Student Employment Office on the JobConnection website.
Employment professionals will maintain the confidentiality of student and alumni information, regardless of the source, including personal knowledge, written records/reports, and computer databases in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). There will be no disclosure of student/alumni information to another organization without the prior written consent of the student/alumni, unless necessitated by health and/or safety considerations.
CLASSROOM PRESENTATIONS & MEETING WITH FACULTY
Some faculty on campus will allow employer representatives into the classroom to speak on a specific topic. This is up to the discretion of the faculty member. Employers are not allowed to visit a classroom uninvited. If you are interested in connecting with a faculty member, please contact the Employer Relations team at email@example.com.
ALCOHOL AT RECRUITING EVENTS
Serving alcohol cannot be part of the recruitment process. This includes both on-campus and off-campus events, such as receptions, information sessions, dinners, company tours, etc.
THIRD PARTY RECRUITING/STAFFING AGENCIES
Marquette University Career Services Center provides engagement opportunities, including the opportunity to post jobs on Handshake, to third party recruiting and staffing agencies on a case by case basis. Third party organizations are only able to recruit for their own staff positions at our career fairs and other on-campus activity.
Participation on Handshake is limited to job postings, provided the agency comply with the below conditions:
- Staff associated with the Handshake account must self-disclose their status as a third party recruiter.
