Cooperative Education Information
In order to recruit on Spartanburg Community
College’s campus, along with following SCC policies and guidelines outlined
below, we ask that all employers abide by the Principles for Professional
Practice for Career Services & Employment Professionals of the National
Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). To protect the best interest of
our students, employers conducting recruitment activities through student
associations or academic departments should do so in accordance with the
policies of NACE and career services.
If employers are found violating any of these
policies and/or student complaints are filed regarding an employer, Career
Services will investigate and reserves the right to deny an organization campus
recruiting services pending the results of the investigation.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS TO RECRUIT AT SCC
All employers must be deemed legitimate
organizations with verifiable business name, physical address, email address,
phone number (website is desirable) and the name of a contact who can be
reached at the listed address(es). Most companies with salaried positions that
require college degrees are eligible. Foreign based businesses may be verified
by the U.S. Department of State.
Employers must agree to abide by the National Association of Colleges and
Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice, including the following
Network Marketing Organizations
Network Marketing Organizations are not
considered "employers" by Career Services and are not eligible to
participate in on-campus interviewing, resume referrals, job listings, employer
presentations, and/or sponsorships for on-campus activities.
Career Services considers organizations that
engage in the following to be Network Marketing Organizations:
Another characteristic of a Network Marketing
Organization may be that compensation is in the form of straight commission,
fees from others under their sponsorship in the organization, and/or a
percentage of sales generated by others.
Third-Party Recruiting Agencies
The SCC Career Services uses the National
Association of Colleges and Employers' definition of third-party recruiters as
"...agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for
temporary, part-time or full-time employment opportunities other than for their
own needs. This includes entities that refer or recruit for profit or not for
profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be
disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment."
We follow general NACE guidelines in working
with third-party agencies as published in the Principles for Professional
Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals.
We provide direct assistance to third-party
agencies that meet the following criteria:
Commission, Sales and Financial Industry
Career Services strives to provide information
that will connect Spartanburg Community College students to the best possible
job opportunities offering training, support, and structure in internships or
entry-level positions appropriate to recent graduates and alumni. Ideally, we
look for positions that offer work experience related to a student's major or
career goals in which they can continue building skills on-the-job. Due to
varying employment, business and compensation models used by employers, Career
Services will exercise discretion in working with those employers that comply
with our established policies and practices including policies with regard to
commission positions as applicable. Commission based sales, full-time
opportunities and paid summer/internship opportunities must comply with the
SCC CAMPUS RECRUITING GUIDELINES

Student Direct Referrals
Career services staff supports and maintains
fair and equitable recruiting practices and is therefore precluded from making
direct student referrals or recommendations as outlined in NACE
Principles of Professional Practices.
Financial Investment by Student
Employers are prohibited from charging fees to
students during the job search process or during employment. Career services
will not post positions where the student is required to purchase or rent any
type of sales kit or presentation supplies.
Unapproved Campus Marketing
All forms of marketing on the SCC campus must
receive the approval of the appropriate career services office, department
and/or the student activities office.
OFFER GUIDELINE AND POLICIES
If your organization has a required contract
that must be signed in order to be employed with your organization, the student
must be allowed to take the contract with them in order to review and seek any
needed counsel or advice before signing. They must also be afforded a
reasonable amount of time (general rule is a minimum of two weeks) to consider
before making a decision. Career Services also reserves the right to request to
review any contracts being used in campus recruiting.
Breaches of Conduct by Employers
Consistent unfair treatment of students has
the potential to result in any/all of the following:
We encourage students to immediately release
offers they do not plan to accept. Additionally, any student reneging on an
accepted offer is considered in serious breach of our recruiting policies and a
poor reflection on Spartanburg Community College. If this situation occurs,
contact career services prior to taking any action. The student will receive
