recruiting event

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 PracticePrinciples 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.


Internship Guidelines

Campus Recruiting Offer Policy 

The 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 Recruiters 

Third-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. Hiatt follows the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) policies on third-party recruiters:

NACE defines "third-party recruiters" as agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities other than for their own needs. This includes entities that refer or recruit for profit or not for profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment. The term “third-party recruiters” refers to but is not limited to employment agencies, staffing services, temporary agencies, online job boards, recruiters, and contractors. Representatives from these companies may post under the following conditions:
They must not charge a fee to the applicant.

Commission Based Employers

For Brandeis sponsored programs, including career fairs, treks, interviews, information sessions, and other employer sessions, the Hiatt Career Center does not promote or authorize companies that are 100% commission-based to participate.  Employers are authorized to post general job opportunities in Handshake. 


The 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 Weather

When 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.

Internship Postings

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.
