Engineering Career Services (ECS) adheres to the NACE Principles for Professional Practice for Career Services and Employment Professionals and expects employers to do the same. These principles are available on the National Association of Colleges and Employers website.
Employers are expected to maintain a positive, collaborative working relationship with ECS staff. That includes cooperation with ECS policies and procedures, meeting necessary deadlines to ensure smooth operation of on-campus interview visits, providing the job / company information and data requested, providing hire data as requested, complying with the legal obligations of recruiters, and maintaining the confidentiality of student data as outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Employers that violate FERPA regulations will lose access to ECS services for five years, as stated in the regulations.
All employer representatives are expected to support ECS policies in all interactions with students. Of course, the ECS management team welcomes employer feedback and input on those policies at any time.
Employers that are unable to comply with these policies may wish to use other recruiting resources, such as newspaper advertisements, commercial job boards, or third-party agencies.
Engineering Career Services is committed to equal employment opportunity for all persons and provides services to our students and employers on a nondiscriminatory basis. We expect all employers to comply with U.S. and [state] employment laws and we recommend including an EEO statement with all job descriptions.
