The Office of Personal Career Development at the University of Dallas has established guidelines to help facilitate the hiring process for all employers. If we can be of assistance in your recruiting efforts, please contact our office at (972)721-4135.
You are invited to participate in our recruiting programs and events if you are an employer with actual or anticipated bona fide entry-level positions and career-related paid internships. A bona fide position is defined as a career opportunity that is salaried (not 100% commission), and does not require the candidate to pay a fee for training or other job-related expenses. Graduate and professional school representatives may also schedule events to recruit University of Dallas students.
Employers that use Handshake or through UD's Office of Personal Career Development will have access to participant's (i.e. applicant's) resumes and the personal information contained therein for recruiting, interviewing, and hiring purposes only with the explicit permission of the student. Resume books are not available to employers in an effort to vigorously protect the privacy of our students. Handshake and University of Dallas are not responsible for what employers do with the personal information that is available or accessible on this site.
The Office of Personal Career Development at the University of Dallas requires all employers to comply with all applicable state and federal civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in hiring and in the workplace, which includes discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex (gender or gender identity), sexual orientation, age, marital status, religion, disability, national origin, ethnic origin, or prior military service.
Handshake, a career services platform that connects students and employers to democratize the job finding experience, in college and beyond. From the very beginning, our goal has been to design privacy into our platform in a way that respects the rights of students, the obligations of Universities, and the needs of employers. We understand that student data privacy is a hot topic these days so we want to make clear the very basic privacy principles that guide our policies and practices:
University of Dallas does not offer resume books or make student accounts (or any student information within) public facing. Students and University of Dallas Career Development staff, with explicit permission of the student as it relates to the specific employer and/or opportunity, may provide resumes and other relevant information to employers upon request (i.e. in response to a job posting).
Opportunities posted on Handshake may or may not be reviewed by the Office of Personal Career Development before posting. Users are urged to review the opportunities on a case by case basis and use caution and common sense before applying to any opportunity. The Office of Personal Career Development strongly advises students to not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers to unknown employers. The Office of Personal Career Development cannot be held responsible and/or liable for any damages, real or imagined, past, present or future, from the information contained in or requested by the opportunities posted on Handshake. Site users are urged to validate job postings and use caution and common sense when applying.
Whether trainees or students are employees of an employer under the [Fair Labor Standards Act] will depend upon all of the circumstances surrounding their activities on the premises of the employer. If all of the following criteria apply, the trainees or students are not employees within the mean of the [FLSA]:
Employers often schedule students for second round interviews the next day after their initial interviews. This practice does not provide any flexibility to the student, or offer any consideration for his/her previously scheduled commitments. Ideally, second round interviews should not be scheduled within three days of your first round interviews/notification of your second round interviews. Students have classes, exams and other prior obligations that they cannot cancel on a moment's notice. Often, if they are unable to attend at your requested times, they feel that they will be eliminated from the pool of considered candidates.
We suggest that students not be immediately eliminated from the pool of second round candidates should they be unable to meet on the first requested date. Alternative options should be provided to students who cannot meet with you on the first scheduling attempt. Organizations that have been flexible with scheduling are often able to attract and attain the strongest candidates.
Consistent with the guidelines of the National Association of Colleges & Employers, we ask that students be given at least two (2) weeks to make an informed and responsible decision. Providing students with insufficient time to decide on an offer can be detrimental to both parties. An exploding offer on a signing bonus is also considered inappropriate.
Offer Policy to Summer Interns
If you would like to make a full-time offer to a summer intern, we request that you allow the student two weeks to accept/decline the offer. This will ensure that the student has the time necessary to make an informed decision.
We encourage employers to not serve alcohol as part of the recruitment process. Given the issues college campuses are having with alcohol use among students, serving alcohol at a reception can send the wrong message. Many college students are younger than the state's drinking age as well. Our concern is for your liability and the safety and welfare of our students, especially when attending an off-site event that would require students to drive back to campus in a safe manner.
Due to liability and risk management issues, the college does not endorse interns or job applicants into a home office or home training situation.
Employers are expected to be familiar with and to honor the Principles of Recruiting and Employment published by the National Association of College and Employers
