Policies

Bryn Mawr College Career and Professional Development has set the following guidelines for participating companies in the Recruiting Program to ensure a positive and equitable recruiting experience for all parties involved.

General Guidelines

Bryn Mawr College is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Organizations participating in the recruiting program & posting opportunities are expected to comply with the "NACE Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals" as well as applicable Equal Employment Opportunity laws.

Offers & Second Round Interviews

On Offer Deadlines: Participating organizations are expected to give students ample period of time to make an informed decision on their search. We strongly suggest November 14 as a reasonable and appropriate date to ask employers to accept as a date for early Fall recruiting offers or 2 weeks after the offer date, whichever is later.

On Second Round Interviews: Please provide students with sufficient time to arrange their schedules. If a student is already scheduled to interview with another employer and this poses a conflict, please demonstrate reasonable flexibility by providing the student with alternate dates for the second round interview.

Alcohol Policy

Bryn Mawr College has adopted a no alcohol policy at any and all recruiting events whether on or off campus pursuant to the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. Please read the Bryn Mawr College Drug & Alcohol policy for more information. Furthermore, Bryn Mawr College abides by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles of Professional Conduct, which states, "Serving alcohol should not be part of the recruitment process on or off campus. This includes receptions, dinners, company tours, etc."

Internships

Employers posting an internship to the Bryn Mawr online recruiting system should review The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division guidelines on compensation. This fact sheet provides information on whether workers are considered unpaid interns or paid employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). It is expected that employers who post internships are in compliance with this criteria.

Excluded Recruiting Practices

The Recruiting Program will not sponsor the following recruiting activities:

  • On-campus solicitation or on-campus sales of goods or services.
  • Positions with commission-only compensation.
  • Hiring students to recruit other students for the employer's purposes.
  • Organizatons without valid company email addresses (from free services such as gmail, yahoo,etc.)
  • Fee-based opportunities or initial investments to be paid by student to gain employment.
  • Third-party recruiting agencies that do not disclose the hiring entities that they represent.
