Career Services - Recruitment Policies and Procedures for Employers

You are invited to register on Purple Briefcase and to use this University of the Sciences’ portal if you are an employer with actual or anticipated bona fide position(s) and career-related paid or unpaid internships/and or volunteer opportunities. There is no fee associated with the registration of the company or posting of job/internship opportunities. A bona fide full-time or part-time position is defined as a career opportunity that is salaried (not 100% commission) and does not require the candidate to pay a fee for training, purchase a membership and/or product(s), or any other job-related expenses.

Approved participating employers and employer representatives are expected to comply with Equal Employment Opportunity regulations and related legislation in their recruitment and hiring practices (job postings, on campus recruiting, campus visits and career event attendance). Consideration should be afforded to all candidates without regard to race, religion, color, sex, disabilities, sexual orientation, national origin or age. All employers are expected to be familiar with and to honor the NACE Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals. For more information, please visit NACE.
