Guidelines for Hiring a Thunderbird

Thunderbird Career Management Center at Arizona State University adheres to the NACE Principles for Professional Practice for Career Services and Employment Professionals and expects employers to do the same. These principles are available on the National Association of Colleges and Employers website.

Employers are expected to maintain a positive, collaborative working relationship with Thunderbird staff. That includes cooperation with Thunderbird policies and procedures, meeting necessary deadlines to ensure smooth operation of on-campus interview visits, providing the job / company information and data requested, providing hire data as requested, complying with the legal obligations of recruiters, and maintaining the confidentiality of student data as outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

All employer representatives are expected to support Thunderbird policies in all interactions with students. Employers that are unable to comply with these policies may wish to use other recruiting resources, such as newspaper advertisements, commercial job boards, or third-party agencies.

Recruiting Policy

Purpose

To ensure the quality of our services to Thunderbird School of Global Management students, alumni and other users, Arizona State University Career and Professional Development Services (CPDS) establishes these policies and guidelines for all employer recruiting activities permitted by our office.

 

Basic Terms

Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University supports its students’ prospective employment choice by allowing employers to recruit and interview its students. These employer recruiting activities include, but are not limited to: career fairs, on-campus interviews, information sessions, employer tabling and advertising career-related opportunities through Handshake.

To participate in employer recruiting activities, employers must meet the following terms:

  • Employers must have an established organization email address and operational website.
  • The rate of pay is at least federal, state, or local minimum wage (calculated over any time scale - hourly, weekly, semi-monthly, monthly or annually).
  • If offering an unpaid internship, the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act guidelines must be met.
  • Project/contract work and full-time commission-only positions are reviewed and approved at the discretion of Thunderbird Career Management Center. Thunde does not accept commission only internships or part-time jobs.
  • The employer complies with all applicable federal, state, and local Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Laws, worker’s compensation laws, workplace safety, and unemployment insurance laws, according to the jurisdiction where the employment is offered.
  • The employer complies with ASU’s Prohibition Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation policy, ACD 401, and Career and Professional Development Services Employer Recruiting Policy.

The posting of all job and internship listings is a privilege, and permitted at the discretion of Career and Professional Development Services. CPDS reserves the right to deny a position if it does not follow National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) standards and does not support the best interests of students and/or the University.

 

Excluded Practice

Thunderbird Career Management Center will not permit employer recruiting activities if:

  • The full-time job or internship is not career or degree related. Part-time non-degree positions must provide transferrable skills to a related career field.
  • The job or internship involves in-home healthcare or child-care, door-to-door sales, or marketing goods and services directly to university students.
  • Housing is the sole form of compensation offered in exchange for work.
  • The organization requires an initial payment or investment, or account balance or similar fiscal requirements with the organization itself serving as an umbrella or parent corporation. Investments may include, but are not limited to: requirement to attend unpaid orientation or training sessions; direct payment of a fixed fee; payment to attend orientation or training sessions; and/or purchase, rent, or place deposit on a starter kit, sales kit, samples, or presentation supplies.
  • The organization fails, for any reason, to provide necessary information needed to post a job opening.
  • The organization refuses or fails to provide (upon request) documentation to substantiate any claimed memberships or affiliations with professional organizations, e.g. registration with the Better Business Bureau.
  • The job or internship involves the sale or distribution of medical marijuana. The possession or use of marijuana on ASU’s campus is illegal under state law, the use of marijuana is illegal under federal law, and ASU complies with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act. Medical research projects involving marijuana must comply with A.R.S. § 15-108(A).

Additional practices that may lead to exclusion from employer recruitment activities at Thunderbird School of Global Management include, but not limited to: fraud, misrepresentation, bait and switch tactics, breach of confidentiality, substantiated complaints by or harassment of Thunderbird students, alumni, or staff, and requiring personal information (e.g. bank and/or social security numbers) when not part of the hiring process.

 

Participation in Information Sessions and other On-Campus Activities

Thunderbird Career Management Center reserves the right to deny request to host an on-campus activity by an employer. If it is determined that the event or location is not aligned with the employer’s recruiting interests and/or the academic demographics of the students at that location; alternative options will be recommended.

 

Grievances

Thunderbird Career Management Center staff will investigate complaints by users of our services that may involve employers, job postings, or work assignments. If the complaint is substantiated, Thunderbird reserves the right to reject that employer’s future recruiting requests.

Thunderbird adheres to the aforementioned policies and guidelines to ensure the quality of our services and reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time. All decisions regarding employer recruiting activities are made at the sole discretion of Thunderbird and Arizona State University.

 

Ethical Practices

The success of the recruiting process is based on adherence to ethical practices as established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in their Principles for Professional Practice, which also includes principles for third-party recruiters.

 

Offer and Withdrawal Guidelines for Employers 

Employers should allow students enough time to make a thoughtful decision. Thunderbird Career Management Center expects employers to follow principles set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), which include refraining from practices that improperly influence job acceptances, including undue time pressure for acceptance of offers and encouraging revocation of other employment offers. In the event that an employer must withdraw an offer, the employer will be expected to provide the student with compensation commensurate with the loss of opportunity to secure another offer.

 

Student Reneging Guidelines and Prohibition of Students Accepting Multiple Offers

It is unethical for students to continue to seek or consider other employment opportunities once an offer has been accepted. Thunderbird Career Management Center expects students to honor an acceptance and withdraw from all employment seeking activities. Students who accept an offer from an organization and later renege/decline the offer will be prohibited from further utilizing Thunderbird CMC pending a meeting with the Senior Director of Career Management Center.
