Third Party Recruiters

Gustavus Adolphus College Career Development works with third-party recruiting/staffing organizations* who are able to follow these guidelines (adapted from National Association of Colleges and Employers and the "Principles of Fair Conduct for Temporary Employment Agencies”) outlining professional standards of conduct to insure a productive and successful recruiting relationship.

To source and identify recent graduates and experienced alumni, third party recruiters agree to:

  • Promote “real time” employment opportunities and provide sample listings of such at career fairs and through online postings;
  • Not charge Gustavus applicants for any services rendered;
  • Respond promptly to requests from applicants and Career Center professionals;
  • Follow EEO standards in the screening, recruiting and referring of qualified applicants to employers without regard to the race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation or disability;
  • Provide accurate information to applicants and Gustavus Career Development on the terms and conditions of services;
  • Obtain written consent from applicants prior to disclosing any information to organizations (Under no circumstances can applicant/student information be disclosed for anything other than recruiting purposes nor can it be sold or provided to other entities.);
  • Provide applicants with copies of documents, including signed applications/agreements;
  • Not prohibit, restrict or penalize applicants from accepting a job directly with a client company.

*The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) defines a third-party recruiter as an individual, agency or organization that recruits candidates for temporary, part-time or full-time employment opportunities for another organization.
