Employer Code of Conduct for Recruiting
The Department of Construction Management follows the University Career Center and National Association of Colleges and Employers' Principles for Professional Conduct in Student Hiring. Please be aware of the following guidelines when recruiting our students:
We ask that employers convey decisions to candidates within a reasonable time frame and communicate that time frame to candidates. As a general rule, employers should give students a minimum of two weeks from the date the offer is made to make their decision, ideally within the semester of graduation. Please give students a minimum of two-weeks to respond to offers.
Exploding offers (offers that do not afford the candidate the appropriate time to either accept or decline) are unacceptable. Employers are to refrain from exerting any undue pressure on candidates to accept an offer.
If conditions change and require your company to rescind an offer made to a student, we ask that you contact the CM Placement Office prior to taking any action. If after discussions with the Placement Office, the offer is rescinded, we ask that you pursue a course of action for the affected candidate that is fair and equitable, including (but not limited to) financial assistance and outplacement services.
Employers should not try to persuade students to renege on employment offers from other companies under any circumstances. This would be in direct breach of the university recruiter code of conduct and ethics. Students who renege face serious consequences limiting or revoking their access to career services.
Companies who violate these guidelines, may face penalties including being barred from further recruiting activities. The department asks for your support as we prepare our graduates for a professional career in the construction industry.
Students are held to similar recruiting conduct – reference our 'Student Code of Conduct for Recruiting'
Third Party Recruiting Agencies
The CM Phelps Placement Office, in accordance with the CSU Career Center and the Collegiate Career Services Association of Colorado and Wyoming (CCSA) uses the National Association of Colleges and Employers' definition of 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."
Staffing agencies and third party recruiters are not permitted to recruit on-campus through the CM Department at this time. This includes the career fair, info sessions, on-campus interviews, and other on-campus recruiting events hosted by Construction Management.
Staffing agencies and third-party recruiters are permitted to post position announcements to our on-line job board, provided they:
- Charge no fees to the candidate.
- Reveal the identity of the employer being represented and the nature of the relationship between the agency and the employer, and permit the verification of such information by contacting the employer directly. The Phelps Placement Office will not attempt to solicit business away from third-party recruiters, however, we will require employer permission to advertise any opportunity with one of our existing industry partners.
- Submit only current valid openings which disclose the employer and specific position within the posting.
- Use candidate information exclusively for the identified employer and position. Re-disclosure of candidate information is not permitted.
- Comply with all federal and State Equal Employment Opportunity laws (Titles VI and IX, and ADA).
Network Marketing Organizations, as defined by the CSU Career Center, are not permitted to recruit on-campus through the CM Department. This includes the career fair, info sessions, on-campus interviews, and other on-campus recruiting events.
Employers are not permitted to recruit Construction Management intern or work experience candidates for commission or sales positions.
For information on other recruiting services provided by the CSU Career Center, please visit their website.
Note: Member institutions of CCSA often share information with one another regarding their relationships and experiences with third-party agencies and, at the discretion of individual career offices, other conditions of the agreement may apply.
