Recruiting Policies and Guidelines

Radford University Employer Recruiting Policies and Guidelines

Radford University Career Center cordially invites employment recruiters to partner with us to provide career, internship, and other experiential opportunities for RU students and alumni. Please note our interview times begin at 8:30 a.m. and must end at 5 p.m.

Employer Expectations

Employment recruiters who wish to make use of the assistance, services and/or facilities must comply with Radford University Code of Ethics, Nondiscrimination Policies, RU Job & Internship Posting Standards and adhere to employment laws and principles of professional practice, as outlined by the federal government and The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice.

Students using Career Center are advised of their rights under federal law, and of the method for filing a complaint with the appropriate agency. Each interviewer should be familiar with the RU Career Center recruiting guidelines as well as the equal employment provisions of federal law.
