Employers

Becker College seeks to help employers connect to current students and alumni. Our hope is to create a long-term partnership with employers and become a top of mind source for your recruiting efforts.  Networking events, internships, full-time, or interviewing, we can help you connect to our talented students and alumni.

Recruiting Policies and Hire a Hawk

Becker College accepts postings from employers who are in accordance with our Mission and Core Values. We reserve the right to refuse an employer account or job posting from any company, organization, or entity who college officials deem as not a match. View our Vision and Mission (opens in new window)

Approval Process

For legal, professional, and safety reasons, Becker College can only accept job or internship posting requests from organizations that fit certain legal and structural standards.  These standards include, but are not limited to legally recognized employers.  Generally this means a business, nonprofit organization, or government agency that holds a federal tax ID and employer ID number. We do not require proof of an organization’s status. However, we might ask for documentation if there is minimal public information available.

The Center for Career Education & Advising (CCEA) at Becker College expects our employer partners to abide by industry-standard practices, presented by the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Ethical Professional Practice, as students and alumni are recruited from the College.

Specific policies to note at Becker College, to supplement the Principles for Ethical and Professional Practice, are included here:  http://www.naceweb.org/career-development/organizational-structure/principles-for-ethical-professional-practice/ (opens in new window)


Becker College Non-Discrimination Policy

By recruiting Becker College students and utilizing CCEA recruiting services, employers should respect and follow College standards in the recruiting process. Becker College is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action institution and prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, gender identification, genetic information, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law.  This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, admission to and enrollment with the College, including, but not limited to, recruitment, selection, hiring, placement, transfer, promotion, training, compensation, benefits, discipline, termination, educational policies, admission policies, financial aid, scholarship and loan programs, housing, athletic and other College-administered programs and activities.  Further, faculty, staff, students, and applicants are protected from retaliation for filing complaints or assisting in an investigation of discrimination.

Inquiries regarding non-discrimination policies may be directed to: Michelle Fatcheric, Title IX Coordinator, 44 West Street, Worcester, MA, 774.354.0462, michelle.fatcheric@becker.edu.


Job Offers

We expect employers of Becker College students abide to the following guidelines concerning the acceptance of job and internship offers:

  • Employers should refrain from any recruitment practice that improperly influences and pressures students regarding job offers. Such practices may include, but are not limited to, unreasonable time pressure for acceptance of employment offers, encouragement of revocation of another employment offer, and “exploding offers”/reduced offer package incentives as penalties for students
  • If an employer is in a position to rescind or defer an offer for employment, the CCEA highly recommends that the employer read the NACE Advisory Opinion (opens in new window) regarding these types of situations to understand the risks and alternatives.

Confidentiality and Non-Solicitation

All organizations utilizing Becker College’s CCEA services for recruiting, agree to maintain full confidentiality of personally identifiable information in regards to student data. Employers must maintain student confidentiality, regardless of source (electronic applications, networking events, interviews, etc.). By utilizing the CCEA’s services, employers agree to use information only for open positions inside that organization, and may not share with any other source. For this reason, career fairs, on-campus interviews, and other services are only available to organizations hiring for internships, volunteer positions, or jobs within their organizations. Additionally, the CCEA at Becker College will not post jobs, internships, or volunteer positions that require students to promote/solicit products on campus or recruit other students for those purposes.


Student Behavior and Other Expectations

Should an employer find an interaction with a Becker College student to be questionable, concerning, or inappropriate, we would ask that the employer contact the CCEA Executive Director Rich Davino, at 774.354.0451.

CCEA reserves the right to deny or discontinue employer-recruiting privileges such as job and internship postings through our Handshake system, on-campus interviews, career fairs, and networking events, etc., to any organization at any time. Any individual who violates these expectations, may be barred from access to recruiting services, at the discretion of the CCEA Executive Director.
