Ohio University's Career Network established recruiting guidelines to create an equitable and fair recruiting environment. Employers are expected to follow Equal Employment Opportunity guidelines and to abide by the ethical framework provided by NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Employer Requirements on Handshake
Employers who request to recruit with Ohio University through Handshake must have a functioning website with information about the company. Additionally, staff members connected to the company should have an email address that matches the company’s domain (no Gmail, yahoo, etc.). The Career Network may make exceptions for small businesses who do not own an email domain.
Making Employment Offers
The Career Network recommends that companies do not place unnecessary pressure or time constraints to accept a job or an internship offer. Exploding offers – offers that require candidates to accept or decline an offer within a unreasonably short amount of time – are prohibited.
Multilevel, 'network' or ‘pyramid’ marketing companies sell goods through distributors, and employees recruit others to receive commission through their ‘downline.’ The Career Network does not deem these opportunities appropriate for Handshake or for other recruiting avenues at Ohio University.
Sales companies are expected to represent their opportunities accurately and to be transparent about the commission structure, what the employee is selling, and the method of selling (door-to-door, etc.). Companies that use 'bait and switch’ tactics or who post intentionally misleading jobs will be declined to recruit at our institution.
Third party recruiters must clearly identify as such and name the employer client that they’re hiring for in the job description. If this information is not disclosed, the Career Network will decline your job postings and acceptance to our school.
Unpaid internships must abide by the Department of Labor‘s Fair Labor Standards Act, which states that unpaid interns must be the primary beneficiary of the relationship and that their work should complement, rather than displace, the work of paid employees.
