Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair Policy

The policies outlined in this document pertain to employer recruitment activity at the Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair.

We invite organizations to register for Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair provided they meet the following basic criteria:

  • The organization must have actual or anticipated bona fide internship, clinical, field placement, or full-time opportunities for our students.
  • The organization must accurately describe the responsibilities and requirements for the opportunities it offers at Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair.
  • All conditions for advertised positions must be clearly publicized in the position description. This includes, but is not limited to, positions that are commission-based, involve out-of-pocket financial expenses, test taking, etc. 
  • Employer organizations are expected to be familiar with and to honor the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals.

Third Party Recruiting/Staffing Agencies
Third party organizations are able to recruit for their own staff positions and for other organizations.

All conditions for advertised positions must be clearly noted on job listings and are thoroughly explained in recruiting conversations and interviews with students. Furthermore, the agency must meet the following requirements in order to attend Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair: 

  • Charge no fees to the candidate.
  • Provide a position description for valid openings.
  • Commit to applicant privacy. Organizations should only share candidate information with clients when a specific job description is shared with the student/alumni fair attendee.
  • Comply with all federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws (Title VI and IX, and ADA). 
  • We have the right to limit the number of recruiters in this area or eliminate their attendance without prior notice. Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair has a primary purpose of assisting students in connecting with direct employers.

Duplicate Organization Policy
Employers with the same umbrella organization (such as a headquarter office and a branch location) must register as two separate companies since they will receive two separate guidebook entries.

Payment Policy and Deadline
All fees must be paid in full by the registration deadline (excluding government and military employers). Failure to submit full payment will result in forfeiture of registration and the space will be given to another organization.

Refund Policy
To receive a full refund, the organization must notify Kim Matteson, mattesonkimberly@sau.edu 10 days prior to the event. If notification is received after, the organization will NOT receive a refund. We hold that organizations benefit from Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair and its promotion even if the organization is unable to attend because:

  • Organizations receive exposure through web advertising.
  • Organizations receive exposure through the guidebook. 
  • Organizations receive exposure through career fair promotions at two institutions.
  • Revenue from the fair helps to support SAU's Health Careers Adventure Camp

Inclement Weather Policy
We will decide whether to cancel Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair due to inclement weather. Good faith efforts will be made to communicate event cancellation to relevant constituents via e-mail messages and phone calls. We advise all employers to make their own judgment if weather conditions pose an issue or concern.

Participation Requirement
To ensure students are able to take advantage of the opportunities at the fair no matter what time they arrive, please ensure you have a representative at your booth throughout the full duration of the event.

Space Limitations
Each organization will receive a 6x10 foot space. Please limit any floor displays to 6x8 foot dimensions. Display space will be strictly enforced. If the display exceeds the allotted area and infringes on neighboring booths or fire exits, they will be asked to remove the portions of the display which exceed the space.

Confidentiality Statement
Employment professionals will maintain the confidentiality of student information, regardless of the source, including personal knowledge, written records/reports, and computer databases. There will be no disclosure of student information to another organization without the prior written consent of the student, unless necessitated by health and/or safety considerations.

Disclaimer
We require all employers who attend Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair to follow the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) practices as well as NACE Professional Standards in the recruiting process. There shall be no discrimination against any qualified person on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, political or personal favoritism, marital status, sexual orientation or disabling condition. By registering your company or organization with us, you agree to accept and comply with the policies and procedures of Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair regarding employer recruiting activities. We reserve the right to refuse service to any company or organization whose business we believe is of a nature that is not appropriate for our students and alumni, nor consistent with the mission of both institutions. If we determine that an employer has practiced recruiting techniques that are inconsistent with the requirements set forth in this policy, the employer will not be allowed to attend Health Sciences Career & Networking Fair, or will be asked to leave if already present. All decisions concerning registration of companies and organizations are made in our sole discretion.
