The Center for Career Development maintains its websites as a service to students and alumni for their career development and job search efforts.
The Center for Career Development would like its students using the services of the office to understand and adhere to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) position on your rights and responsibilities as a job seeker.
The Center for Career Development adheres to the ethical standards of the Principles for Professional Practice that was established by NACE. The office holds its staff as well as employers and third-party recruiting organizations recruiting Davidson students and alumni accountable to these principles to ensure that:
It is Davidson College's policy to admit qualified students and administer all educational, athletic, financial, and employment activities without discrimination based on race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, or any other status protected by applicable federal, state, or local law unless allowed by law and deemed necessary to the administration of the college's educational programs or operations. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment as well as all academic, athletic, and other educational admissions, enrollment, participation, and programming. Davidson College expects that any employer or third-party organization representing an employer that posts a position through the Center for Career Development or uses the college's facilities for the purpose of recruiting for full-time, part-time, temporary or intern positions adheres to this policy and complies with federal and state equal employment opportunity laws in its recruiting and hiring.
The no-show policy applies when a student does not appear for a scheduled interview and/or when a student cancels an interview after the interview schedule freezes at midnight two business days before the employer's interviews begin.

Falsifying data such as your GPA, dates of graduation, major/minor, work experience, eligibility to work in the United States or other information is unethical. If you falsify documents or misrepresent yourself to any employer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, Career Development has the right to rescind your privileges to use our services. Employers have the right to withdraw an offer or terminate your employment for misrepresentation.
Once you accept a job offer, whether via our recruiting program or in your independent job search, you are expected to withdraw completely from the job search process. If you are uncertain as to whether you should accept an offer, please consult with a Career Development staff member. Reneging is unprofessional and jeopardizes Davidson's reputation in the employment community as well as your own. Should you renege on an offer, Career Development may block you from participating in any additional on-campus interviews.
The intention of the campus recruiting offer policy at Davidson is to allow students ample time to carefully consider all of their employment options and to make informed decisions about their employment after Davidson. We educate students on evaluating and negotiating job offers and discourage them from hasty decisions that may lead to reneging, which we strongly discourage. In order to better meet student and employer needs, we have created the following campus recruiter offer policy:
Employers may not offer incentives or exert undue pressure to students to accept/decline an offer before the deadlines stated below. An offer may not expire before the stated deadlines.
This fact sheet (PDF) produced by the United States Department of Labor provides general information to help determine whether you must be paid the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the services that you provide as an intern to "for-profit" private sector employers.
The Center for Career Development adheres to the aforementioned policies and guidelines to ensure the quality of our services and reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time.
