The Springfield College Career Center is committed to providing its students and alumni with fair and equitable access to experiential education experiences and professional employment opportunities. To ensure that students’ and alumni rights are upheld and that they have the opportunity to make well informed decisions, the Career Center has developed the following employer policies regarding on-campus recruiting, the scheduling of Information Tables and Information Sessions, the listing of internship and job opportunities in our on-line resources, and participation in college sponsored job/career fairs.
Large and small businesses, educational systems, government and not-for–profit organizations offering full-time jobs may list opportunities on the Career Center’s on Job Etc. system at no cost. The Job Etc. posting system allows an employer to manage all components of the of the system including creation of an employer profile form with a self created username and password. Employers are able to post internship, full & part time vacancies, additionally, they have the capacity to edit, update, enable and change any of the information they have listed. All vacancies are archived indefinitely which allows the employer to edit and repost.
If you prefer, EEO compliant listings can also be mailed, emailed email@example.com, phoned (413.748.3222/3110) or faxed (413.748.3022). All listings must identify the employing organization and provide complete and accurate contact information.
Internships, part-time and seasonal jobs and internship or fieldwork opportunities can similarly be forwarded via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, phoned (413.748.3222/3110) or faxed (413.748.3022). Please submit all relevant information including qualifications, term, whether it is a paid or unpaid opportunity, application deadline, and complete contact information. All vacancy information including internships is posted on the Career Center's Jobs Etc. web site and searched by students, career counselors and faculty to locate appropriate student experiences.
The NACE Principles of Conduct also apply to hiring and recruitment practices for these opportunities.
