Employer/Recruiter Policies for Use of Career Services at IUPUI

The IUPUI Career Services Council is first and foremost committed to working in the best interest of IUPUI students.

In addition to these legal and ethical guidelines, the following recruiting practices will NOT be allowed:

  • Providing fraudulent information and/or misrepresentation of positions or company information through dissemination of dishonest information or absence of information to the IUPUI Department or to students

  • Requiring, at the time of application, personal information such as bank accounts , social security numbers, or photo of the applicants

IUPUI will provide assistance to third party agencies only when a third party recruiter meets the following conditions:

Resume Referrals

IUPUI does not release resumes to employers without student consent. Each school with an online recruiting system has resume books where students may self-select to include their resumes or allow viewing by employers. By policy, IUPUI releases resumes to direct hire employers only.
