Recruiting Policies and Guidelines
Radford University Employer Recruiting Policies and Guidelines
Radford University Career Center cordially invites employment recruiters to partner with us to provide career, internship, and other experiential opportunities for RU students and alumni. Please note our interview times begin at 8:30 a.m. and must end at 5 p.m.
Employment recruiters who wish to make use of the assistance, services and/or facilities must comply with Radford University Code of Ethics, Nondiscrimination Policies, RU Job & Internship Posting Standards and adhere to employment laws and principles of professional practice, as outlined by the federal government and The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice.
Students using Career Center are advised of their rights under federal law, and of the method for filing a complaint with the appropriate agency. Each interviewer should be familiar with the RU Career Center recruiting guidelines as well as the equal employment provisions of federal law.
RU Career Center: Job & Internship Posting Standards
Organizations wishing to recruit students and alumni of Radford University using Hire-a-Highlander or other electronic or print-media posting can do so free of charge. All submissions to RU career services and community engagement job and internship databases are reviewed and approved/rejected based upon the information contained in the postings.
Postings must adhere to the following criteria:
- All jobs and internships posted should be relevant for candidates pursuing or already possessing a university degree.
- All recruiters must follow the NACE Principles for Professional Practice for Employment Professionals and for Third-Party Recruiters. Third-Party Recruiters that charge fees to students will not be permitted access to career services. Students will be advised to review the NACE publication A Student’s Guide to Interviewing with Third-Party Recruiters.
- Internship postings must meet the definition and criteria established for internships by the NACE Position Statement on U.S. Internships and internship providers are encouraged to review the US Department of Labor Internships Programs Under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
