Employer Recruiting Policies

By registering with EagleAXIS, Employers agree:

  • That they are an equal opportunity employer and to abide by Eastern Washington University's Non-Discrimination Policy.  
  • To follow guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals (source) and Position Statement: U.S. Internships (source)
  • To follow guidelines set forth by the Department of Justice in Best Practices for Online Job Postings (source)
  • To provide accurate and complete information to students concerning conditions of employment
  • To interact with students, alumni and Career Services staff in a professional and ethical manner

Registration on EagleAXIS does not automatically enable employers to use EWU Career Services resources. Career Services staff members verify all employer registrations, and may use their professional discretion to limit recruiting activities for employers when information of concern is found during our research. 

EEO/Affirmative Action & Non-Discrimination Policy

EWU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Employers recruiting on campus will be expected to maintain EEO compliance and follow affirmative action principles during all recruitment activities.

In addition, as per EWU's Human Rights policy, Eastern Washington University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, genetic information, age, marital status, families with children, honorably discharged veteran or military status  or the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability. We ask that any employer partners recruiting on campus maintain the same standards.

Employers affirm compliance with these requests when participating in any campus recruitment activity, including the posting of employment opportunities.

Third Party/Agency Recruitment Policy

Third party recruiters are required to follow guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals, including:

  • Disclosure of the name of client currently represented (5a) [EWU addendum: when requested by Career Services]
  • Disclosure of additional information about client that allows Career Services to verify the presented opportunities (5b)
  • No disclosure of any student information to a client without written permission from the student (6)

In addition, EWU requires that third party recruiters must register for EagleAXIS under the name of their current employer/recruiting firm, and not under their client's name.

All relevant policies can be found here.

Commission-Based Positions Policy

Employers offering commission-based positions may post job listings at The Career Center provided they abide by the following guidelines:

  • Provide Career Services and/or interviewees of the specific manner in which remuneration is to be determined, when asked
  • Select  "Commission" or "Base + Commission" as the Compensation Type
  • Follow all other EWU Career Services Recruiting Policies
  • For short-term internships (one to two quarters), students must have the option to also pursue academic credit for the experience.

On-Campus marketing positions such as Campus/Brand Ambassador

Because University facilities may not be used for private or commercial gain (exceptions noted here), employers seeking to hire students to market their services/products may not utilize EWU Career Services resources.
