Employer Usage Policies

The UC San Diego Career Center serves employers that offer bona fide full-time, part-time, internship, volunteer or fellowship positions to students and UC alumni.  All employers must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity guidelines, NACE Guidelines for Professional Practice, and UC San Diego's Offer and Acceptance Guidelines. For accounting firms, please also refer to the Accounting Recruitment Calendar.  Employers are prohibited from posting positions that request donations, non-refundable fees, investments or have items or services for sale.

We reserve the right to refuse service to employers at the discretion of the Career Center Director due to any objectionable activities, including, but not limited to: requiring at the time of application personal information such as bank and social security numbers; misrepresentation by dishonest information or absence of information; student complaints; fraud; failure to adhere to Career Services Center policies or any violation of University of California, local, state, or federal laws.
