Any employer whose job postings or recruiting practices are found in violation of the Career Development Center’s Employer Recruiting Policies or the NACE Principles for Ethical Professional Practice will have their recruiting privileges permanently revoked. The Career Development Center reserves the right to determine whether or not to publish a job or internship.

On-campus recruiting and career fairs

Employers participating in on-campus interviews and career fairs must abide by the Career Development Center’s job and internship posting terms and conditions. Contact us if you have questions regarding career fair registration or on-campus interviewing space.

Job and internship posting terms and conditions

The Career Development Center will only publish job/internship postings that abide by the following terms and conditions:

Pay structure

Organizations are encouraged and expected to clearly define compensation structure in job postings. The Career Development Center does not publish 100% commission-based jobs and internships, nor does the Center permit job or internship postings with base salaries that are drawn from future commissions. All job postings must meet or exceed the North Carolina minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

Advanced leads or monetary start-up costs

Employers or internship hosts requiring a monetary start-up fee or contact information on potential leads will not be permitted. No training or application fees may be required of the applicants.

Network marketing or multi -level relation (pyramid)

Postings for network marketing organizations or organizations with a multi-level relation (pyramid) structure will not be made.

Inclusive language

Employers and internship hosts must use inclusive language in their job and internship descriptions.

Complete contact information

Employers and internship hosts must offer complete contact information to the Career Development Center, including phone numbers, email address, web address, and physical address of the business and the exact location of the job or internship. We do not post jobs that require travel to an individual home.

Clearly-defined descriptions

The Career Development Center does not post positions in which the job or internship description is not clearly defined or is subject to suspicion.

Organizational structure

Job and internship postings must be associated with a clearly-defined business or organization. All organizations must have a website with a matching email address domain for its contact person. The Career Development Center does not service private individuals.

Third party recruiters (employment or staffing agencies, search firms)

The Career Development Center does not service third party recruiters. Agencies, organizations, or individuals must recruit to hire for their own organization and may not post or hire on behalf of another agency, organization, or individual.

International opportunities

The Career Development Center only posts international opportunities that are sponsored by Appalachian State University.

Academic department feedback

The Career Development Center reserves the right to withhold a job or internship posting if an academic department at Appalachian State University requests relations with an employer or internship host be restricted or terminated.
