The College of Engineering Recruiting Guidelines and Policies can be found here, but we want to highlight a few of these policies specifically for Career Fair Recruitment.

Inviting Candidates to Recruitment Dinner:

When inviting student candidate(s) to dinner during recruiting visits to Auburn, please do so through an official email or through a printed invitation provided during the recruitment event. Please let the candidate(s) know the following information:

  • Location and time of dinner
  • Dress code for dinner
  • How many candidates you are inviting
  • How many team members will attend
Job Offer Guidelines:

The Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations seeks to facilitate a positive experience for employers and students regarding job offers, providing an optimal amount of time for students to consider job opportunities as well as a reasonable guideline for employers when making a job offer.   

    • The Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations prohibits exploding offers (defined as offers that will expire or be retracted in a short timeframe).
    • Please contact us if a student has made an unreasonable request regarding an offer deadline.
    • Based on the 2022-2023 recruitment calendar, we ask that employers adhere to the following deadlines for student decisions:
      • For a spring offer, March 17 or three weeks, whichever is longer
    • Additional resource regarding job offers: NACE Advisory Opinion: Setting Reasonable Deadlines for Job Offers
Title IX:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” - Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

Auburn University is responsible for the safety of its students, even while they are participating in an off-campus Co-op or internship. If a student reports to us a negative experience with a company, we are required to report the incident to Title IX Office at Auburn University. The Title IX Office will then follow up with the student and begin the process of further investigation.

The Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations reserves the right to suspend recruitment with a company until the investigation concludes. We may ask for documentation of the process the company took with the student once the complaint was made, as well as a list of steps the company will take to ensure the future safety of its student interns and Co-ops before recruitment reinstatement is issued.

Equal Employment Opportunities

Employment professionals will maintain equal employment opportunity (EEO) compliance and follow affirmative action principles in recruiting activities in a manner that includes the following practices:

  • Recruiting, interviewing, and hiring individuals without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability, and providing reasonable accommodations upon request
  • Reviewing selection criteria for adverse impact based upon the student's race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability
  • Avoiding questions that are considered unacceptable by EEO guidelines for fair employment practices during the recruiting process
  • Developing a sensitivity to, and awareness of, cultural differences and the diversity of the workforce
  • Informing campus constituencies of special activities that have been developed to achieve the employer's affirmative action goals
  • Investigating complaints forwarded by the Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations regarding EEO noncompliance and seeking resolution of such complaints

AU Co-op strives to host a recruitment process that is fair and equitable and support informed and responsible decision-making by candidates.

  • Please remember that you are recruiting 18-20 year old young adults who are navigating the formal interview and job offer process for the first time. They rely on you, career coaches, academic advisors, and family to help make informed decisions.
  • Additional resource regarding job offers:   NACE Advisory Opinion: Setting Reasonable Deadlines for Job Offers

"Experience shows the best employment decisions for both students and employers are those that are made without pressure and with the greatest amount of information and transparency. Students given sufficient time to attend career fairs, participate in on-campus interviews, and/or complete the interviewing in which they are currently engaged are more likely to make good long-term employment decisions and may be less likely to renege on job acceptances."

Please note: to ensure that you attract the right applicants, job postings for Co-op Interview Day must be unique to Auburn ( i.e. do not use a job posting that is also posted at other schools).  Any position posted at multiple schools will be duplicated so that a posting unique to Auburn can be used.
