Employer Recruitment Policies

Policies Regarding Employer Practices

Employers who recruit at Purdue University North Central must comply with state and federal Equal Employment Opportunity legislation, as well as University policy. Failure to do so will result in immediate suspension of on campus recruitment activities, including removal of any active job postings within our CareerTrax system. To review all applicable state and federal laws as well as University policy, please visit the Office of Institutional Equity Web page.

Additionally, the Career Center has developed the following policies to ensure that PNC students and alumni are treated fairly and are being recruited for viable positions. The Career Center reserves the right to deny recruiting privileges (resume drops, on campus interviewing, career fairs, etc.) to any organization.

others and so on to sell products and services will not be permitted to recruit on campus or attend Job Fairs.

Third Party Recruiters
Definitions of Third Party and Temporary Employment Agencies:
Third Party or Temporary Employment Agencies are organizations or individuals that recruit candidates for temporary, part time or full time employment opportunities for other organizations rather than for their own organization’s internal hiring needs.

Policies for Third Party and Temporary Employment Agencies:
Agencies wishing to list a position with the PNC’s Career Center’s CareerTrax system must adhere to the following:

  • For Job Postings, provide the name of the client you are representing in the Job Description
  • State in the job description that any fees assessed by the agency will be paid by the client organization or employer you represent. We will not post any opportunities that require students to pay fees.
  • Agree that you or your client may not forward PNC students’ resumes to any other party without the student/applicant’s written consent. Failure to comply with this is a violation of The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
  • Third party recruiters, whether recruiting for internal or third party organizations, may not participate in career fairs.

Babysitting or other In-Home Employment

We do not post babysitting jobs or other positions where an employee will work out of someone else’s dwelling (house, apartment, condo, etc).
