    By registering with Handshake and connecting with EWU, Employers agree:

    Registration on Handshake does not automatically enable employers to use EWU Career Services resources. Career Services staff members verify all employer connections, and may use their professional discretion to limit recruiting activities for employers when information of concern is found during their research. 

    EEO/Affirmative Action & Non-Discrimination Policy

    EWU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Employers recruiting on campus will be expected to maintain EEO compliance and follow affirmative action principles during all recruitment activities.

    In addition, as per EWU's Human Rights policy, Eastern Washington University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, genetic information, age, marital status, families with children, honorably discharged veteran or military status  or the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability. We ask that any employer partners recruiting on campus maintain the same standards.

    Employers affirm compliance with these requests when participating in any campus recruitment activity, including the posting of employment opportunities.

    Third Party/Agency Recruitment Policy

    Third party recruiters are required to follow guidelines set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals, including:

    In addition, EWU requires that third party recruiters must register for Handshake under the name of their current employer/recruiting firm, and not under their client's name.

    All relevant policies can be found here.

    Commission-Based Positions Policy

    Employers offering commission-based positions may post job listings at Career Services provided they abide by the following guidelines:

    Temporary/Non-Career Posting Policy

    In order to better serve our students, EWU Career Services does not support the posting of temporary, non-career related postings. Examples of these postings are: short-term childcare, non-organized relocation services, and house/home-sitting. In addition to supporting students' long-term career objectives, this policy allows EWU Career Services to further promote the safety of its students by avoiding opportunities that may place individuals in isolated and/or potentially unsafe work environments. We recommend utilizing other services such as Craigslist to promote these opportunities.

    On-Campus marketing positions such as Campus/Brand Ambassador

    Because University facilities may not be used for private or commercial gain, employers seeking to hire students to market their services/products may not use EWU Career Services resources.

    Restricted Recruiting Activities Policy

    Eastern Washington University reserves the right to restrict or prohibit employer recruitment activities according to the following criteria:

    Employers must:

    Employers may not:

    Cancellations and/or Changes to Scheduled Events
