Third–Party Recruiters are agencies, organizations or individuals that recruit candidates for other organizations’ temporary, part time or full-time employment opportunities. They may also recruit for their own organization’s internal hiring needs.
Third–Party Recruiters using UNL Career Services are expected to follow the same policies and procedures established for recruiters representing their own organization. In addition, Third-Party Recruiters are expected to agree to these Third-Party Recruiter policies, ensure all staff understand and comply with these policies, and ensure open and accurate communication with UNL students.
