Recruitment Guidelines
In line with the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE)’s Guide to Ethical Recruitment, we request that employers, Asper School of Business students, alumni and other users of our services comply with the following guidelines for all recruitment and employment-related activities on campus.
  • All employers must abide by all relevant federal and provincial legislation
  • All recruitment activities must be coordinated through and approved by Asper School of Business Career Development Centre. Exceptions: special events or curriculum-related activities organized by an Asper School of Business department or professor
  • Only opportunities considered relevant to at least one of Asper School of Business’ academic programs will be approved for on campus recruitment and online job board. Exceptions may be made for the following:
    • Part-time positions (20 hours week commitment maximum) that are directed towards current students
    • Summer positions (May to August duration)
    • We will not promote full-time opportunities that do not require post-secondary education

Third Party Recruiters

  • Candidates' resumes must not be held in the files of the third party recruiter for later referral to other positions unless authorized by the candidate
  • Organizations advertising third party job posting websites are not permitted

Sales/Commission-Based/Franchine Opportunities


 We do not allow recruitment for 100% commission-based positions unless there is a minimum wage.

All postings for sales, commission-based or franchise opportunities must provide the following details (if applicable to the position):

  • Detailed descriptions of the job responsibilities
  • Compensation arrangements (i.e. how income will be calculated). Potential earnings and guaranteed earnings must be clearly distinguished in the posting
  • Lengths of required training and any costs associated with the training
  • Any applicable start-up costs (franchise fee, demo kit costs, travel/accommodation costs, etc.)
  • Any financial obligations or penalties if the students/graduate chooses to leave the position

International Opportunities

Due to the high level of risk involved with going abroad, we require that all recruitment activities for international opportunities clearly explain the following details:

  • Where the opportunities will take place
  • Main tasks and responsibilities of the position
  • The formal structure of the program if it is an internship, cultural exchange or ESL teaching program
  • Application process and policies
  • Any applicable required training or fees
  • How the student will be supported while abroad


Internships can be great opportunities for students to gain meaningful experience and receive valuable hands-on training. As a member of CACEE, we share CACEE’s position on unpaid internships and would only promote unpaid internships that meet the following criteria:

  • The training is similar to field-specific or applied training that can be found at a post-secondary institution
  • The training is for the benefit of the intern
  • The organization providing the training derives little, if any, benefit from the activity of the intern while he or she is being trained
  • The intern does not displace employees of the organization providing the training
  • The intern is not accorded a right to become an employee of the organization providing the training
  • It must be clearly stated within the posting that the position is an unpaid internship
  • The skills and/or experience gained must be transferable to other employment settings
  • There are clearly defined and articulated learning outcomes for the intern to realize by the conclusion of the internship
  • Regular supervision is given by a professional pertinent to the internship and feedback is shared with the student on a regular or ongoing basis
  • Internships must be for a defined period of time.
