Recruiting Policies

Albers Placement Center Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

The Albers Placement Center at the Albers School of Business and Economics provides placement services to all students and graduates on an equal opportunity basis. We do not knowingly furnish assistance and facilities for interviewing and other placement functions to persons, firms, agencies, or organizations that discriminate in the selection of candidates or employment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, or status as a veteran of the Vietnam era.

An employer that requests to use our placement services in any manner acknowledges that it is willing to adhere to the non-discrimination policy. The Albers School of Business and Economics expects all employers will consider, in good faith, each applicant on the basis of his or her merits.

Recruiting Policy

Nondiscrimination: Seattle University makes its facilities and services open only to employers who are in compliance with state and federal law pertaining to Equal Employment Opportunity.

Third Party Recruiters or Employment Agencies Representatives may be approved to recruit or post opportunities under the following conditions:
No fee is charged to the student or applicant
The name of the hiring company is released to Albers Placement Center staff and is approved by the staff
The hiring company is an Equal Opportunity Employer

Fees to students: Seattle University will not host organizations such as pyramid-type organizations and other organizations that require a financial investment, purchase of supplies or equipment, or pay a fee as a condition of employment unless such fees are required in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws.

Commission based positions: The organization needs to fully disclose compensation package and business costs incurred up through the first year of employment. This includes salary, duration of salary, training allowance, incentive programs, stock options, commission structure, benefits, and any costs borne by the applicant/employee, including testing, licenses, classes, travel expenses, and equipment. Those positions providing a salary for less than one year will be considered business opportunities and recruitment will not be permitted.

Requesting information on academic performance: An employer should feel free to seek information from an applicant about his/her academic performance and to request a copy of the applicant's transcript if that information is important to the hiring process.

Disclosure of company information: Employers using Seattle University's facilities for recruitment activities must register with the Albers Placement Center and provide complete information concerning conditions of employment, including accurate and clear information on methods of remuneration, within their organization. Employers listing employment opportunities for posting anywhere on campus should clearly disclose such conditions both in writing and when speaking with candidates.

The final approval for employers to utilize the Albers Placement Center’s facilities and services rests with the Director of the Albers Placement Center and the Executive Director of Career Services. If deemed necessary, the Executive Director may refer difficult cases to the Executive Team for a final decision.

The permission to use Seattle University's facilities does not imply university approval or endorsement of the policies, practices, or products of the recruiting organization.
