On-Campus Recruiting Policies

All employment professionals participating in On-Campus Recruiting activities: career fairs, networking events, Handshake job postings, industry panels, etc., are asked to review, comprehend, and follow a framework of professionally accepted recruiting, interviewing, selection, and job offer practices as specified in:

Visiting Campus

Employer’s visits to campus, including using TWU’s facilities for recruitment activities, must be planned and organized by/through the Career Connections Center and/or The Center for Student Success. This includes classroom visits, student organization meetings, tabling events, information sessions, career fairs, on-campus interviews, flyer posting or marketing materials/takeaways, etc.

The University prohibits recruiting and related activities in any public space on campus or in a room not specifically designated, approved, and organized for recruiting activities by the Career Connections Center.

Third-party Organizations

"Third-party Recruiter” refers to Employment Agencies/Search Firms/Staffing Services/Temp Agencies/On Line Job Board Services/IT Training/Contract/Recruiters, etc. Representatives may be approved to recruit or post opportunities under the following conditions:

  • The employer discloses that they are a third party employer

The TWU Career Connections Center asks third-party recruiters to review and follow the Principles of Professional Conduct for Employers set forth by NACE.

Requesting Student Information or Referrals from Faculty or Staff

Employers are ONLY permitted to acquire information (academic or otherwise) about applicants or potential applicants directly from the student.

In accordance with FERPA regulations, the TWU Career Connections Center and TWU department faculty and staff will not provide any student information to an employer.

Student Brand Ambassadors

Texas Woman’s University does not allow employers to post positions and/or hire students to act as their brand ambassadors and/or participate in marketing, branding, recruiting, soliciting, or commercial activity on campus.

Solicitation and Commercial Activity

The University prohibits employers and organizations from posting, promoting or marketing any fee based or free/no-cost opportunities that have not been pre-approved by the University, collecting student, faculty or staff information on campus, and taking photographs which may infringe on trademarks. Below are a few examples of prohibited solicitation and commercial activities.

  • Promote, distribute, or sell a free service, resource, or product on campus.
  • Promote jobs that require students to purchase supplies or pay for training/certification.
  • Collect student information or photographs on campus for any reason unless pre-approved by The University or in conjunction with a Career Connections Center sponsored/authorized recruiting activity.

Posting Flyers on Campus

To post flyers on campus bulletin boards, materials must be submitted to the Career Connections Center for approval prior to being distributed to approved locations by employer.

Student Organizations

The University prohibits recruiting at student organization on-campus meetings and events unless planned and organized through the Career Connections Center. This includes: recruiting students, collecting resumes or other student information, sharing employer information for the purpose of recruiting, tabling, or posting marketing material at these events on-campus. Upon the invitation of a student organization and following approved co-sponsorship with the TWU Career Connections Center, recruiting events/activities may be permitted on a case-by-case basis.

Home-based Employment

Unfortunately, because of the lack of enforced federal/state employer regulations/guidelines and our inability to conduct an effective vetting process, we cannot allow home-based jobs (babysitting/nanny, private caregiver, tutor, housekeeping, transportation services, etc.) to be posted or offered to Texas Woman’s University students.

Employment Opportunities with Costs or Fees

Texas Woman’s University will not allow job posting or participation in on-campus recruiting to organizations such as franchise, home or party sales and/or multilevel marketing-type organizations and/or other organizations that require a financial investment, purchase of supplies or equipment or pay a fee as a condition of participation or employment unless such fees are required in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws.

Texas Woman’s University will not allow job postings or participation in on-campus recruiting to organizations that charge fees for training or housing.

* The permission to use Texas Woman’s University’s facilities does not imply University approval or endorsement of the policies, practices or products of the recruiting organization.
