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.

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.
