Legal information

On-campus recruiting policy

It is Linfield Career Development’s On-Campus Recruiting Policy that all individuals and organizations wishing to conduct recruiting activities on the Linfield Campus must first contact Linfield Career Development. We will work with each recruiting organization to determine appropriate recruiting activities on campus that best serve the organization and our campus community.

Linfield Career Development follows NACE’s Principles for Ethical Professional Practice and advisory for appropriate recruitment and employment practices to best maintain a recruitment process that is fair and equitable, and support informed and responsible decision making by candidates.

As part of this policy, all organizations and individuals must also adhere to our confidentiality and Equal Employment Opportunity Compliance policies and are subject to our Right of Refusal.

Right of refusal

The Office for Career Development reserves the right to terminate from or refuse the participation of any organization in our recruiting activities. Reasons may include misrepresentation by providing dishonest information or absence of information, or complaints by students/alumni. In addition, the Career Development staff reserves the right to remove organizations or job postings that do not align with the college’s mission and/or provide any risk to a student's personal or financial well being.


Employment professionals will maintain the confidentiality of student information in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). There will be no disclosure of student information to another organization without the prior written consent of the student, unless necessitated by health and/or safety considerations.

Equal employment opportunity compliance

All employers recruiting Linfield students and using Linfield’s Cat Connect system, must comply with all applicable laws relating to equal employment opportunity (“EEO”) and may not discriminate against a job applicant because of his or her race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, military or veteran status, marital status, or any other classes protected by local, state, and federal law. Federal law also prohibits citizenship status and national origin discrimination with respect to hiring, termination, and recruiting. For additional information on prohibited EEO practices, please visit the EEOC's Website and the Department of Justice Website.

NACE principles for employment professionals

All employers recruiting Linfield students are required to uphold the professional conduct standards outlined in National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals, a subsection within the Principles for Professional Conduct.
