Policies for Use of Career Services & Affiliations

NACE and Equal Employment Opportunity

In order to provide fair and equitable services to our students and employers, the Career Center and its clients adhere to the following policies:

Employers must subscribe to the National Association of Colleges and Employer (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice, the Department of Labor laws and regulations, and to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recruitment and employment guidelines and laws established by the Federal and Nebraska governments. We do not knowingly furnish assistance and facilities for interviewing or other career services functions to employers who discriminate in their selection of employees on the basis of sex, age, disability, race, color, religion, marital status, veterans status, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.

Right to Refuse Service

We reserve the right to refuse service to employers for factors such as the following:

  • Misrepresentation by dishonesty or lack of information
  • Fraud
  • Complaints by students
  • Harassment of UNL students, alumni, or staff
  • Breach of confidentiality
  • Requiring, at the time of application, personal information such as bank and social security numbers
  • Positions not likely of interest to college students or alumni
  • Excessive outlay of personal funding required to obtain the position
  • Failure to adhere to Career Services policies and/or any violation of UNL rules and regulations, and local, state, or federal laws.

Third Party Recruiters

We also reserve the right to refuse service to third party recruiters. Third party recruiters are agencies, organizations or individuals recruiting candidates for employment opportunities other than for their own needs. Third party recruiters using UNL Career Services are expected to follow the same policies and procedures established for recruiters representing their own organization. In addition, third party recruiters are expected to adhere to several specific practices to ensure open and accurate communication with UNL students.

Career Services will provide assistance to third party agencies only when a third party recruiter meets the following conditions:

  • Meets the NACE and EEOC policies and laws described above
  • Charges no fees to the candidate
  • Reveals to Career Services the identity of the employer being represented and the nature of the relationship between the agency and the employer, and permits the career center to verify this information by contacting the named client
  • If requested, provides a position description to Career Services for valid openings.

ON-CAMPUS INTERVIEWS AND CAREER FAIRS - Third party recruiters are allowed to interview on campus or participate in career fairs when the above conditions are met. Career Services may require the name of the employer being represented to be identified on all announcements.

Referrals - By policy, Career Services typically releases resumes to direct hire employers only. However, resume referrals may be processed for third party recruiters and/or search firms if the name and location of the hiring company is disclosed and Career Services is provided permission to verify this information by contacting the named client. In order to process a resume referral, we need a job description including the name of the hiring company.
