  • York College policies

    Overview of Employer Recruitment Policies

    All of the York College of Pennsylvania policies and guidelines have been informed and developed in accordance with the Principles for Ethical Professional Practice set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The York College Career Development Center is committed to ensuring that the recruitment experience with our campus is a positive and fair process, which includes maintaining a fair and equitable recruitment process as well as supporting our students in making informed and responsible decisions regarding their future employment.

    Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

    The York College Career Development Center adheres to applicable federal and state EEO laws, regulations, standards, and guidelines, and offers employment information without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. The Career Development Center works only with those employers who abide by EEO guidelines. 

    Employer Policy

    Recruiters are welcome on campus when sponsored by Career Development or another department and are required to adhere to all campus policies, including the College’s no solicitation policy. This policy applies to businesses and students selling to and/or recruiting other students. Any employer seeking an opportunity to hire students for these purposes will not be permitted to post opportunities or have access to students. This also applies to email blasts, posters, fliers, and other efforts to reach York College students and faculty. In addition, recruiters may not enter classrooms to distribute materials or make presentations without prior approval from the professor of the class you wish to enter.

    Handshake Policy

    Employers must not impose fees, upfront costs, or initial monetary investments upon students and alumni in order to become an employee of the organization. This does not include industry or occupational licensure fees that may need to be covered by the employee (e.g., insurance, real estate, etc.). Positions that require participants to raise their own financial support must clearly specify this within the job description.

    Employers offering full-time positions must offer a salary or a salary with commission. Positions CANNOT be commission-only.

    Private homes, teaching English abroad agencies, and home-based businesses are currently ineligible to participate in any recruiting services on campus, including posting on Handshake. Employers are encouraged to utilize sites such as Care.com, Urban Sitter, and other reputable apps when seeking individuals to hire for home based-positions (e.g., babysitting, tutor, pet care, yard work, etc.)

    Third-party agencies who are approved for Handshake may only post for positions within their own organization. Third-party agencies may not refer resumes from Handshake to any other employer or client unless permission from the student or alumni is explicitly and voluntarily given.

    Cannabis companies are not eligible to post on Handshake. Since York College receives federal funding, the college must be in compliance with federal law which states that marijuana use is illegal. In addition, the use of marijuana violates the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act and is a banned on campus. Cannabis companies approved for federal research may reach out to Career Development to learn more about the cannabinoid chemistry program on our campus.

    The Career Development Center reserves the right to edit, delete, or refuse any job, internship, or volunteer posting.

    Career Development strives to accommodate employers to the best of our ability; however, we do not guarantee room availability, audience attendance, or classroom visitation opportunities.

    Career Development encourages students to consider all types of career opportunities and does not endorse specific companies or organizations. While offering its services to serve as a liaison between students and off-campus employers, the Career Development makes no guarantees regarding the qualifications and/or credentials of the York College students and alumni who utilize Handshake.

    Career Development reserves the right to limit or revoke recruiting privileges on campus or within Handshake to any employer who violates any of the stated recruiting policies.

    Third-Party Recruiting Policy

    Third-party recruiters, temp agencies, and staffing services firms may be eligible to participate in on-campus recruiting services by adhering to the following college policies: 

    • Third-party recruiters must abide by all policies stated above including EEO and NACE’s Principles for Ethical Professional Practice.
    • Third-party recruiters will provide information about their operations, services, and candidate review processes to Career Development when requested. 
    • If approved to post, all positions posted on Handshake must be for their own organization’s hiring needs (e.g., recruiter, office administrator, etc.).
    • Students/alumni may not be charged a fee or upfront costs for the third-party recruiter’s services or to apply to any position.
    • Third-party recruiters may not use any resumes obtained from Handshake for referral to any other employer or client unless permission from the student or alumni is explicitly and voluntarily given.
