Employers seeking to recruit Brandeis students are expected to comply with the principles set forth by the federal government and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
The Hiatt Career Center adheres to these policies including the Principles for Professional Practice, Principles for Employment Professionals and Position Statement for U.S. Internships as well as the following. For more information regarding these recruiting expectations, please contact our employer relations specialists.
Campus Recruiting Offer PolicyThe campus recruiting offer policy provides students with sufficient time to complete their job search, consider employment options and make informed decisions about their future career. The Hiatt Career Center provides programming on evaluating and negotiating job offers so students can feel more comfortable and confident when responding to potential employers. It is required that offers made to students are honored and that no conditions/ pressures are placed as it can result in reneging on the offer. See NACE’s Reasonable Offer Deadline Guidelines for best practices.
Third-Party RecruitersThird-party recruiters, and internship and job placement organizations that charge fees to students will not be permitted access to the services of the Hiatt Career Center. Positions will be approved if the organization they are recruited for is provided. See NACE's Third-Party Recruiting Policy for additional information.
NondiscriminationThe Hiatt Career Center opposes discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, age, national origin, marital status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or disability.
Cancellations/Inclement WeatherWhen Brandeis University is closed due to inclement weather or another emergency, all activities hosted by the Hiatt Career Center are suspended and canceled. Our employer relations specialists will work with employers to reschedule canceled events. Check the university homepage for news of weather closings.
Internships are supervised work experiences that allow students to sharpen their skills, develop career interests and employer contacts, assess their strengths, and connect classroom theories to practice in real world settings. While most students intern during the summer months, Brandeis undergraduates complete fall and spring internships as well. Learn more about student internship guidelines, compensation and academic credit.
Marijuana and Cannabis Industry
Brandeis University's career centers will not accept companies or positions involved with the use, production, testing, or distribution of recreational or medical marijuana. As the use of marijuana is illegal at the federal level and Brandeis receives federal funds, we must comply with federal law. In addition, the use of marijuana violates the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and continues to be banned on campus.
