General Guiding Principles and Recruiting Recommendations

The University of Incarnate Word understands the importance of building a partnership of common goals between individual students hired and the employing organization. The Career Services Department of UIW is instrumental in achieving a successful match between both parties. Employers who post jobs, attend a career fair, or recruit on campus at UIW must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals, and the Policies and UIW Guidelines listed on this page.

There are basic foundation principles applied to guide career planning and recruitment and that is to provide job candidates the opportunity to make choices that will optimize their talents and meet their personal objectives through an open and free selection of employment and experienced-based learning. It is also significant to establish and maintain a fair and equitable recruitment process and lend support to help candidates make informed and responsible decisions regarding their employment.

In providing an open and free selection of students for employment and experiential learning opportunities, UIW’s Career Services reserves the right to take appropriate and necessary actions to enforce compliance with the above guidelines, maintaining a fair and equitable recruitment process among all students employed by UIW.
