Excluded recruiting practices

Established guidelines for all employer recruiting activities permitted by Arizona State University ensure the quality of services offered and limit the risk to students, alumni, and other users. To be eligible to recruit at Arizona State University, organizations must be approved within the university-wide career management system, Handshake. See more employer resources.

Arizona State University does not permit the following employer recruiting activities:

  • Promotion of full-time job or internships that are not career or degree related. *Part-time, non-degree positions must provide transferable skills to a related career field.*
  • Promotion of opportunities involving in-home health care or child care, door-to-door sales or marketing goods or services directly to university students.
  • Opportunities based on commission-only structures. Project/contract work and full-time commission-only positions are reviewed and approved at the discretion of Arizona State University.
  • Opportunities requiring fees from the candidate in order to be eligible to work for the employer, with the exception of select internship programs; these are decided upon on a case-by-case basis by Arizona State University.
  • Opportunities with housing as the sole form of compensation offered in exchange for work.
  • Organizations requiring an initial payment or investment or account balance or similar fiscal requirements with the organization itself serving as an umbrella or parent corporation. These investments include, but are not limited to:
    • Direct payment of a fixed fee
    • Payment to attend orientation or training sessions
    • Purchase, rent, or deposit for a starter sales kit, samples, or presentation supplies
