Recruiting Guidelines

University of West Georgia Career Services adheres to The National Association of Colleges and Employers (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.

The principles presented here are designed to provide practitioners with three basic precepts for career planning and recruitment:

  • Maintain an open and free selection of employment and experiential learning opportunities in an atmosphere conducive to objective thought, where job candidates can choose to optimize their talents and meet their personal objectives;
  • Maintain a recruitment process that is fair and equitable;
  • Support informed and responsible decision making by candidates.

Employers are expected to maintain a positive, collaborative working relationship with UWG staff. That includes cooperation with 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).

Please feel free to call or e-mail the UWG Career Services department if you have any other questions.
