Recruiting Policies

To help you understand the parameters in which we work with our employers, we have outlined our policies here. Please contact us with questions or concerns.

The Center for Career Development applies the NACE Principles for Professional Practice in determining how to effectively work with our customers. 

Employers recruiting on-campus will be expected to maintain Equal Employment Opportunity compliance and follow affirmative action principles in recruitment activities.  Employers must also follow US Department of Labor and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as local, state, and federal laws. Employers should consider all interested students for employment opportunities without regard to race, religion, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability, while providing reasonable accommodations upon request.

The Center for Career Development will not allow postings where the work assignment negatively affects the academic progress of a student, or the employing organization requires or encourages a student to discontinue his or her academic program of study.

At any time, the Center for Career Development reserves the right to refuse service to any employer if, in the sole determination of the Center:

  • A review of specific opportunity or the nature or status of the company suggests that it is inappropriate for the student population;
  • Misrepresentation, whether by dishonest information or absence of information;
  • Fraud
  • Harassment of Duquesne University students, alumni, faculty, or staff;
  • If students are injured or exposed to unsafe working conditions related to the employer's employment opportunities;
  • If the employer discrimates in violation of laws as set forth above;
  • If the Career Center receives student or faculty/staff complaints about discrimination, harassments, threats, unsafe working conditions, or other questionable circumstances;
  • Failure to adhere to Career Center policies;
  • Any violation of Duquesne University policies as well as any violation of local, state, or federal laws.
