According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), third-party recruiters are defined as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities for other organizations. Third-party recruiters include, but are not limited to: employment agencies, temporary agencies, and search firms.

CBU Career Services does not automatically grant campus recruiting access to third-party recruiters. Those who wish to post a job opportunity and/or participate in on-campus recruiting must adhere to the following:

  • For job postings, provide the name of the client you are representing in the job description.
  • For Career Expo participation, state in the company description that you are a third-party or temporary employment agency and indicate the client(s) and position(s) for whom you are recruiting at the event.
  • State in the job description that any fees assessed by the agency will be paid by the client organization or employer you represent. Career Services will not post any opportunities that require students to pay fees
  • Third-party recruiters and their clients must agree that they will not forward the resumes of CBU students or alumni to any other party without the applicant’s written consent. Failure to comply with this is a violation of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
  • Third-party recruiters may recruit only for clients they represent. Names and/or resumes of CBU students/alumni obtained for a job opening may not be used for subsequent job openings or for solicitation of employer clients, except where specific arrangements have been initiated and agreed to by the candidates involved.
  • Upon request, third-party recruiters must provide verification that the agency has an employer for whom it is working and a job vacancy.
  • All vacancies listed with Career Services must be filled according to strict Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and CBU policy.
