The St. Bonaventure University Career and Professional Readiness Center and employment professionals are involved in a partnership effort; providing students with viable career opportunities and career programming. We are committed to helping employers develop effective college relations programs and yield strong candidate selections.
In order for this process to have a positive impact on students, staff, faculty and organizations, it requires a commitment to the consistent practice of principles of professional conduct. Please spend some time in review of the following guidelines in order to assist us in ensuring the quality of our services.
Employers and organizations may participate in recruiting efforts with St. Bonaventure University students and alumni under the following guidelines:
- Employers/organizations abide by the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals as established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). These can be viewed at NACE Principles. It is our expectation that all employers requesting use of our services observe these guidelines, including compliance with all equal opportunity and affirmative action legislation.
- Additionally, employers are expected to abide by the provisions of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 and process résumés only through those representatives who are directly involved in hiring. Accordingly, the résumés may not be transferred to any other person or institution without the written consent of the applicants.
- Employers/organizations may not post or recruit for job opportunities in any venue on campus (including career fairs, employer tables, information sessions, and on-campus interviews)that require students/alumni to pay a fee for training or placement, or rent or purchase any type of presentation or sales materials/supplies. Additionally, those offering employment/entrepreneurial opportunities with compensation packages requiring commission only or requiring prospective employees to purchase a franchise, or where compensation is based exclusively on commission or fees/percentages of sales from others under their sponsorship in the organization, are not permitted to access or utilize the Career and Professional Readiness Center's services.
Principles for Third Party Recruiters
Third party recruiters may participate in campus recruiting related activities ONLY in the event that they will disclose the client(s) they are representing and to whom the student’s credentials will be disclosed. This applies to any on-campus event including career fairs, employer tables, information sessions, job postings and on-campus interviews.
"Third-party recruiters that directly charge students for services are not following accepted professional practices and will not be permitted on-campus recruiting privileges."
For a full explanation of the principles for third party recruiters as established by NACE, please visit Principles for Third Party Recruiters.
The St. Bonaventure University Career and Professional Readiness Center adheres to the aforementioned principles and guidelines. We do this to ensure the quality of the services we provide and reserve the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time.
If you have any questions, please contact the CPRC at 716-375-2384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, and we look forward to successful partnerships!
