Third-Party Recruiting Policy

Ensure your agency understands our guidelines for recruiting

Atlas requires all third-party companies to comply with the below stated requirements. If the agency is unable to comply, Career Services will be unable to provide services to the agency. Atlas recognizes a variety of third-party companies exist in today’s competitive business world.

In an effort to help provide every possible employment opportunity to our registrants, we choose to work with selected third-party employment services that meet university approval. Third-party recruiters are defined according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities other than for their own needs. This includes entities that refer or recruit for profit or not for profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment.

To safeguard our University, our staff and our graduates, we carefully examine each agency that approaches us for services and require they agree to the following criteria: 

  • Job Posting Guidelines: Job posting must specialize within the Computer Engineering industry and adhere to Atlas’s set guidelines for job postings by third-party recruiters, including accuracy of job descriptions, salary transparency, and adherence to equal opportunity employment laws.
  • Services available through the Hire System to third-party employers: Job postings and Career Fair registrations only.
  • Third-party recruiters will abide by Atlas Career Services general employer policies in addition to third-party policies.
  • Code of Conduct: The third-party recruiter agrees to comply with the nondiscrimination requirements of Equal Employment Opportunity, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Fee Structure: No fees are charged or assessed to the candidates with whom this third-party recruiter provides service. If fees are assessed by this agency, then all are to be paid by the employer. 
  • Candidate Representation: The third-party recruiter must actually be representing an organization and recruiting for a legitimate job within that organization. The third-party recruiter understands and expressly agrees that it shall provide any candidate materials only to the employer it is currently representing. Should Atlas Career Services discover the third-party recruiter re-discloses information to another employer, the school will cease working with the third-party recruiter and require the return of all candidate information previously distributed.some text
    • Any student information disclosed by Atlas Career Services is for a single use only and not to be retained or re-disclosed for future contracts by the third-party recruiter. The third-party recruiter agrees to ensure that any re-disclosure of student information for other purposes, including other recruiting contracts, will occur only with the written consent of the student/alumni.
  • Partnership Agreement: The third-party recruiter will disclose the name, address, telephone number, and primary contact person the agency is representing; and gives Atlas Career Services permission to contact the employer to verify contract, job or any related information should it be deemed necessary. 
  • Compliance and Monitoring: Define processes for monitoring and enforcing the policy, including periodic reviews of participating third-party recruiters, addressing complaints or violations, and maintaining an updated list of approved agencies.
  • Communication and Transparency: Ensure clear communication channels between the career services department, employers, candidates, and third-party recruiters. This may include providing guidelines and resources on the department's website, hosting information sessions, and conducting regular feedback surveys.
