Third Party Recruiters
Third Party Recruiters include agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities other than for their own needs. The Hofstra Career Center endorses the NACE Principles for Third Party Recruiters. In addition, The Hofstra Career Center requires that third party recruiters abide by the following:
- Third party recruiters must comply with the applicable federal and state non-discrimination laws to include the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA.)
- All job listings must clearly indicate that candidates will be working through a third party recruiter.
- No direct referrals of candidates will be made by The Career Center to third party recruiters
- Under no circumstances may fees be charged to candidates.
- Third-party recruiters will not disclose to any employer, including the client-employer, any candidate information without obtaining prior written consent from the candidate. Under no circumstances can candidate information be disclosed for other than the original recruiting purposes nor can it be sold or provided to other entities. Online job posting and resume referral services must prominently display their privacy policies on their web sites, specifying who will have access to candidate information. Candidate’s names and/or resumes 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 candidate involved.
- Third party recruiters may not post positions for employing organizations that participate in The Career Center’s On-Campus Recruitment Program.
- Third-party recruiters attending career fairs will represent employers who have authorized them and will disclose the names of the represented employers to candidates.
- When deemed necessary, third-party recruiters will disclose information upon request to The Hofstra Career Center that would enable The Career Center to verify posted job opportunities. Job posting information should include contact information for the organization for which the third party is providing recruiting services. The Hofstra Career Center will respect the confidentiality of this information and may not publish it in any manner.
- Third party recruiters may not have access to resume books.
