ELIGIBLE JOBS AND INTERNSHIPS
Eligible jobs, for which you may recruit through the Career Center, consist of professional duties and salaries or hourly wages. Full commission-based positions and opportunities that require candidates to pay fees for application processes, training, equipment, or other job-related expenses are not supported by the Career Center. Additionally, the Career Center does not support positions that are based in home offices or private residences.
Acceptable internships provide students with structured learning experiences, regular supervision, and exposure to professional aspects of chosen fields.
NON-DISCRIMINATION AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY
In order to utilize Career Center services, you and your organization must adhere to the following policy:
American University policy expressly prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, family responsibilities, political affiliation, disability, source of income, place of residence or business, or certain veteran status and any other bases under federal or local laws.
Compelled by law (the Solomon Amendment), the Career Center grants one exception to the U.S. military so as to avoid the loss of all federal funding, which includes federal student financial assistance and research grants.
NACE PRINCIPLES FOR PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT
The Career Center ascribes to Principles for Professional Practice, set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, and expects employers to review and honor Principles for Employment Professionals.
THIRD-PARTY RECRUITMENT POLICIES
Third-party recruiters must adhere to NACE Principles for Third-Party Recruiters and may recruit AU students and alumni at the discretion of the Career Center.
As a third-party recruiter, you may participate in select campus recruiting activities as long as you provide position descriptions for eligible jobs upon request and refrain from charging candidates for your services. You may recruit AU students and alumni through AU CareerWeb listings, semi-annual Job and Internship Fairs, and networking receptions, while other services are reserved for employers.
EMPLOYER RECRUITMENT GUIDELINES
If you seek candidates for eligible jobs and internships, you may formally recruit AU students and alumni through AU CareerWeb listings and resume books, semi-annual Job and Internship Fairs, on-campus interviews, information sessions, information tables, and networking receptions. However, the Career Center reserves the right to deny you access to recruiting services at any time.
You may only use campus facilities, reserved by the Career Center on your behalf, for the purpose of recruiting AU students and alumni for eligible jobs and internships. Information session room requests and tabling are subject to availability.
Hosting an information session is a privilege provided to you if also conducting on-campus interviews in the same time frame. Additionally, you may host one information table per academic year.
WEATHER EMERGENCY OPERATION PLAN
In cases of inclement weather, on-campus recruiting activities proceed as planned when the university is open and are canceled or rescheduled when the university is closed. Please call 202-885-1100 for daily updates about the university’s operating status.
