The Career Development Center at Oregon State University adheres to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Ethical Professional Practice and expects employers to do the same.
Use of services provided by the Career Development Center, as well as the Handshake platform, constitutes the employer’s agreement to the following policies.
Updated: December 2020
The Career Development Center will provide services and resources for recruiting opportunities to employers provided they acknowledge and meet the following requirements:
Third-Party Recruiters posting a job for a client will be required to disclose the client’s company name for whom they are recruiting in the Job Description box. All positions posted by third-party recruiters without the client’s company name will be deleted from the system. Also, see NACE Third-Party Recruiting Policy and Principles for Ethical Professional Practice.
Temporary agencies or staffing services are employers, not third-party recruiters, and will be expected to comply with the professional conduct principles set forth for employer professionals. These are organizations that contract to provide individuals qualified to perform specific tasks or complete specific projects for a client organization. Individuals perform work at the client organization but are employed and paid by the agency.
Refer to University Policies Regarding Marijuana and Cannabis for our most updated policy under the Student Job Postings section.
The Career Development Center will not approve any non-domestic employer. All non-domestic internships and/or student programs are referred to the Oregon State University Office of Global Opportunities.
Oregon State University and the Career Development Center reserve the right to make exceptions to the policies as necessary. Each exception will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and does not constitute a change in policy, nor does it guarantee that the same decision will apply in the future.
All violations will be investigated on a case-by-case basis. If an employer is found to be in violation of the above policies, access to services (interviews, event attendance, access to Handshake, etc.) may be revoked.
Oregon State University and the Career Development Center are committed to equal employment opportunity for all persons and provide services to students and employers on a nondiscriminatory basis. All employers are expected to comply with U.S. employment laws.
