Employer Recruiting Policy
To ensure the highest quality of our services and to better assist SUNY Fredonia students, alumni and other users of our services, the SUNY Fredonia Career Development Office (CDO) has established these policies and guidelines for all recruiting activities sponsored by the CDO.
Overview and Definition
Recruiting activities include, but are not limited to: posting and advertising job and internship opportunities, campus interviews, information sessions, campus tabling, and career or related fairs. The CDO offers assistance to employers in accordance with the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). These principles have guided our policy for University recruiting activities.
Services for Employers
The CDO offers employers the use of its services and facilities so that they may access students and alumni from the University. Employers are expected to act in accordance with the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals outlined by NACE.

EXCEPTION: This does not apply to fees for Federal and State licensing requirements such as real estate, securities, etc.
Definition of third-party recruiters:
Temporary Agencies – Temporary agencies are employers, not third-party recruiters, and will be expected to comply with the professional conduct principles set forth for employer professionals. These are organizations that contract to provide individuals qualified to perform specific tasks or complete specific projects for the client organization. Individuals perform work at the client organization, but are employed and paid by the agency.
Services for Third-Party Recruiters
Agencies may post positions in Quest, our web database system, provided they include on the listing the name of the employer with the opening and indicate
that there are no fees to candidates for applying.
In no case will the CDO refer, electronically or otherwise, students to agencies that charge fees to the job seeker.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the CDO releases candidate information only with the written permission of the employment candidate and only to the identified employers or third-party recruiters. Re-disclosure of candidate information is not permitted.
The CDO reserves the right to review all employment or internship opportunities and
reject or place conditions upon vacancies as deemed appropriate. Employers or agencies
who violate any of the above policies or who have been judged by a court of law in
the United States to be engaged in illegal activities are prohibited from using CDO
