Recruiting Policies

Eastern Washington University reserves the right to restrict or prohibit employer recruitment guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

Employers must:

  • Adhere to EWU’s Employer Recruiting Policies and honor scheduling arrangements and recruitment commitments.
  • Supply accurate information regarding employment opportunities and compensation packages. If the organization needs to revoke its commitment, the organization must pursue a course of action that is fair and equitable to the affected candidate.
  • Follow Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Affirmative Action principles during recruitment activities.
  • Provide statistical information about their organization and the position, including but not limited to name, contact information, location, compensation, duties, and qualifications.
  • Verify their service to the organization under consideration and provide a business license number or non-profit status verification.

Employers may not:

  • Engage in illegal activities as judged by a court of law in the United States.
  • Offer opportunities in the adult entertainment or cannabis industry, as defined by the Seattle Municipal Code.
  • Hire for positions in an affected bargaining unit in an ongoing strike.
  • Charge fees or require payment for placement services (not including application fees).
  • Offer entrepreneurial opportunities requiring an investment or franchise management by potential candidates as a condition of employment.
  • Offer positions with a piece work pay rate.
  • Seek to employ models, actors, or any other performers traditionally hired through talent-based or casting methods.
  • Promote industries that are in violation of Federal, State or Local regulations.
  • Seek to hire students to sell products/services on campus.

EWU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Employers recruiting on campus will be expected to maintain EEO compliance and follow affirmative action principles during all recruitment activities.

In addition, as per EWU’s Human Rights policy, Eastern Washington University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, genetic information, age, marital status, families with children, honorably discharged veteran or military status  or the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability. We ask that any employer partners recruiting on campus maintain the same standards.

Employers affirm compliance with these requests when participating in any campus recruitment activity, including the posting of employment opportunities.

The term “third-party” recruiters refers to but is not limited to: employment agencies, staffing services, temporary agencies, online job boards, recruiters, and contractor organizations.

Third party recruiters are required to follow guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals, including:

  • Disclosure of the name of client currently represented, as well as on all marketing material.
  • Disclosure of additional information about client that allows the Career Center to verify the presented opportunities.
  • No disclosure of any student information to a client without written permission from the student.

All relevant policies can be found here.

In addition to our third-party recruitment policy, employers offering commission-based positions may post job listings with the Career Center provided they:

  • Divulge compensation plan in job/internship description (base pay, hourly, or commission), and during application process.
  • Register in Handshake under the name of their current employer/recruiting firm, and not under their client’s name.
  • Include the name of the recruitment firm, in addition to the clients name on all marketing material.
  • Disclose additional information about client that allows the Career Center to verify the presented opportunities.
  • Not disclose any student information to a client without written permission from the student.
  • Must register in Handshake under the name of their current employer/recruiting firm, and not under their client’s name.

Commission-only positions may be approved on a case-by-case basis.  Marketing Ads that fail to provide this information will be rejected

In order to better serve our students, EWU Career Center does not support the posting of temporary, non-career related postings. Examples of these postings are: short-term childcare, non-organized relocation services, and house/home-sitting. In addition to supporting students’ long-term career objectives, this policy allows EWU Career Center to further promote the safety of its students by avoiding opportunities that may place individuals in isolated and/or potentially unsafe work environments. We recommend utilizing other services such as Craigslist to promote these opportunities.

All forms of marketing on the EWU campus must receive the approval from the Career Center and the PUB Administration (located on the 2nd floor).

Because University facilities may not be used for private or commercial gain, employers seeking to hire students to market their services/products may not use EWU Career Center resources.

Employers are requested to:

  • Notify the Career Center immediately regarding any changes or cancellations to scheduled events at 509.359.6365.
  • When applicable, employers must also contact students currently scheduled for interviews. Employers canceling with less than 48 hours notice may request help from the Career Center with contacting students.
  • EWU Career Center is unable to provide a refund to employers canceling less than one week prior to any paid events.

By registering with Handshake and connecting with EWU, Employers agree:

Registration on Handshake does not automatically enable employers to use EWU Career Center resources. Career Center staff members verify all employer connections, and may use their professional discretion to limit recruiting activities for employers when information of concern is found during their research.
