Employers Statement of Responsibility
Refrain from any practice that improperly influences and affects job acceptances (e.g., undue time pressures, encouragement of revocation of another acceptance, etc.).
Employers are required to provide students/alumni with a three-business day notice of a second round interview and must accommodate student requests for alternate second round interview dates if they present a legitimate scheduling conflict (i.e. class, work assignment, previously scheduled interview).
Supply accurate information about your organization and employment opportunities.
Honor all offers of employment to candidates.
Strive to communicate with candidates and the Center for Career Development within the agreed upon time frame.
Serving alcohol should not be part of the recruitment process.
Maintain equal employment opportunity (EEO) compliance and follow affirmative action principles in recruiting activities.
Employment professionals must advise the Center for Career Development of any test conducted on campus. They must advise students of the type and purpose of any test that is required in the recruitment process and to whom the test results will be disclosed.
Exploding offers will not be tolerated and could result in a suspension from Handshake recruiting. Sign-on bonuses should be honored whenever the student accepts the offer.
Students are prohibited from accepting any monetary payments from employers with specific instructions to deposit said monies into their personal banking account to then forward a pre-determined amount to the employer. This is considered unethical and will not be tolerated.
If Employers must cancel their interview session date they need to inform the Recruitment Coordinator immediately. Employers are also required to send an email or letter of explanation to any scheduled student that details your future recruiting plans. A copy of this communication should be provided to the Center for Career Development.
All employment professionals participating in our recruiting program are required to work within a framework of professionally accepted recruiting, interviewing and selection techniques as stipulated in the NACE Principles for Professional Practice.
The Manhattanville College Center for Career Development works diligently to prevent fraudulent companies from posting jobs or internships for Manhattanville students. We have criteria we consider before a job or internship is posted on Handshake.
We exclude postings from companies that ask Manhattanville students to pay any funds up front as part of the hiring process so NEVER wire funds via Western Union, Money gram or any other service.
