Student/Alumni Rights and Responsibilities as a Job Seeker

Choosing and attaining meaningful post-graduation employment is an important challenge for college students/alumni. To aid this process, your career center and employers develop connections and programs, such as on-campus recruiting, resume referral services, and job fairs, in which you and your fellow students/alumni are active participants. In order for this process to be successful, everyone involved must work together. These principles provide guidelines for that process in order to guarantee:

  • That students/alumni can openly, freely, and objectively select employment opportunities, making these choices based on their assessment of the best use of their abilities, their personal goals, and other pertinent facts;
  • A recruitment process that is fair and equitable to students/alumni and employers alike;
  • Support for informed and responsible decision making by students/alumni.
