Recruiting Policies

Wake Forest University

By recruiting at Wake Forest University, I understand and agree to the following:

1.) Wake Forest University is committed to administering all educational and employment activities without discrimination as to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or status as a disabled or Vietnam era veteran, except where one of these classifications constitutes bona fide occupational qualifications or statutory requirements.  All persons, companies, and organizations who recruit, post opportunities (jobs, internships, fellowships, etc.), attend a career fair, source candidates from a resume book, host an information session or presentation at Wake Forest University (WFU), or participate in any other recruiting-related activity must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines and the Policies & Guidelines laid out by Wake Forest University below.

2.) The Wake Forest Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) subscribes to and makes every effort to comply with the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Conduct. Every person, company and organization recruiting at Wake Forest is expected to do likewise. Upon request, individuals, companies, and organizations may also receive copies of these principles.  Document link: nace-principles-for-professional-practice

3.) Alcohol Policy: The OPCD adheres to the NACE policy which states that serving alcohol should not be a part of the recruitment process. Therefore, all recruiting activity, regardless of its location, should be alcohol-free. If a person, company, or organization chooses to provide or serve alcohol in violation of this policy, the person, company, or organization assumes complete liability and agrees to indemnify the OPCD and WFU, including its trustees, officers, and employees, for any damage or injuries sustained to persons or property as a result of or arising out of a violation of this policy. In addition, the OPCD  reserves the right to revoke the recruiting privileges of any person, company, or organization who violates this policy.

4.) Individuals With Disabilities: If, due to a disability, you require a reasonable accommodation to utilize the services of the OPCD, please contact the office to let us know how we may assist you.

5.)  On-Campus Testing Policy:  The University recognizes the need of many employers and recruiting firms to conduct pre-employment testing while recruiting students on-campus for prospective employment.  In an effort to accommodate this need, the University permits employers and recruiting firms to administer such tests while on University-owned property subject to the availability of space and to the following terms and conditions:

  • The employer or recruiting firm conducting on-campus testing of students attending the University harmless as to any and all claims or suits arising from and out of the administration of such tests;
  • The employer or recruiting firm will give notice to all students taking an on-campus pre-employment test that the firm is solely responsible for the content and administration of the tests.  In addition, the notice will state that the University is not responsible for the development, content, or administration of the tests, and further, that the University shall not be liable for any claims or suits arising from the on-campus testing.
  • The employer or recruiting firm agrees to abide by all applicable University policies and procedures.
  • The University will not oversee or proctor the administering of such tests.
  • The University reserves the right to revoke an employer or recruiting firm’s permission to conduct on-campus testing at any time without prior notice.
