The services and programs of the University Career Center (UCC) have been developed in accordance with the Principles for Professional Conduct established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Employers using services and/or facilities of the Center for campus interviewing, employment listings, candidate referral, career fairs and/or information group meetings are expected to follow these guidelines. All employers must abide by Equal Opportunity Employment and Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines. Additional policies include, but are not limited to
- Employers must provide valid contact information including an organizational email account. Personal email addresses (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.) will not be authorized to use UCC services. The only exception is if the company name is listed at the beginning of the email address, and that email address is listed on the company website and/or used as the "contact us" email for the organization.
- Employers must provide a brick-and-mortar location for centralized company operations; a residential or PO Box address provided for the business and/or point of contact will not be accepted, unless the opportunity is posted as a virtual internship (see "Virtual Internship Policy")
- All marketing material must be approved by the UCC. We reserve the right close employer’s accounts in Hire-A-Niner and restrict access if there is a violation.
- The UCC reserves the right to deny a posting, contact access, and terminate an employer account at any time.
- All companies who recruit UNC Charlotte students or alumni, either on- or off-campus, should be aware of, and adhere to, our recruiting policies. The UCC staff is happy to help you with any questions or to address any concerns that a company might have about these policies. A company that fails to abide by these policies may be penalized with the loss of priority scheduling status, restriction on student and event access, and cancelation of on-campus events.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte prohibits discrimination and harassment against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, age, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, veteran status, genetic information, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender identity in its programs and activities, and in its employment and educational decisions. The University Career Center observes this policy and requires all employers to comply with applicable laws and regulations related to non-discrimination (see, e.g., https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/index.cfm.)
The Following Exceptions Apply
- Multi-level or pyramid marketing opportunities will not be accepted.
- Positions for which the work assignment is in a private residence or a residential or PO Box address is provided for the business and/or point of contact, will not be accepted. This also applies to start-up organizations that would require a brick-and-mortar location for centralized company operations.
- Positions related to in-home care or in-home employment with private individuals will not be accepted (including babysitting, senior companions, housekeeping, yard work, etc.). Positions of this type will only be listed through a licensed and bonded business or agency.
- Positions requiring students to pay money upfront or fees to be employed will not be accepted. This DOES NOT including professional licensure fees that may need to be covered by the employee (e.g., insurance licensing fees to sell insurance, etc.).
- Positions that violate copyright or intellectual property guidelines will not be accepted.
- Positions soliciting organ donations, blood donations, or clinical drug trials or studies will not be accepted.
- Positions soliciting illegal or fraudulent activities will not be accepted.
- Marijuana/Cannabis Industries: The UCC will not accept positions related to the use or distribution of recreational or medical marijuana. As the use of marijuana is illegal at the federal level, and UNC Charlotte receives federal funds, we must comply with federal law. In addition, the use of marijuana violates the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act and continues to be banned on campus.
- Third-Party Organizations recruiting for international positions, or International Third Party Organizations, will not be allowed to post opportunities in the system.
