Recruiting Policy

Herkimer College’s recruiting policy reflects our mission to help students persist to graduation and allows for up to two recruitment sessions per semester for military branches and for companies seeking to employ students.  We are also asking recruiters to target recruitment to those who will be graduating at the end of the semester. 

Posting Policy

Through HireHerkimer, employers can find diverse, well rounded and skilled talent from our many academic programs. You are invited to use the HireHerkimer site if you are an employer with genuine employment and internship opportunities.

Genuine employment is defined as full-time or part-time compensatory positions, either salaried or hourly. Commission only positions must be clearly labeled as such.  Required fees for memberships, training, products, or equipment must be clearly outlined in the posting.  Employment may not require candidates to use their social media profiles, personal data (i.e. bank accounts, social security numbers, etc.) during the application process. Employment may not include those related to the adult entertainment industry.  Employment may not be based on a “pyramid-style” networking structure, requiring the recruitment of others, who recruit others, etc. to sell products or services.  Positions in private homes and/or for personal services (i.e. babysitting, lawn work, personal care) may not be posted. 

As a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Herkimer College’s expectation is that any interaction with students or alumni is in compliance with the NACE Principles for Professional Conduct. Likewise, if posting an internship, Herkimer’s expectation is that the opportunity meets the NACE definition of an internship and complies with the Fair Labor Standards Act.

All employers must comply with all federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws (Title VI and IX) and ADA).  Release of candidate information provided by the HireHerkimer site is intended exclusively for the identified employer.  Re-disclosure of candidate information is not permitted. 

Third party recruiters and staffing agencies may post genuine employment and/or internship positions provided a complete position description is included that clearly states candidates will be working through a third party.  Positions must be located within the United States; recruiting candidates for foreign employment is prohibited.  Herkimer College reserves the right to request the name and information about the originating employer at any time.  All other aspects of this policy must be observed. 

Herkimer College reserves the right to deny access to posting services to any employer or third party recruiter/staffing agency at any time.
