TCCS Recruiting Policies

Teachers College, Columbia University
Career Services Recruiting Policies


Employment and Non-Discrimination Policy Statement

At the Teachers College Career Services Office, we promote equal access to employment opportunities without discrimination against individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national origin, age, veteran status,  disability marital status, citizenship status, ancestry, military status, pregnancy or any other class protected by federal or state and local laws.  Questions or complaints regarding this policy may be directed to: Director of the Office of Human Resources, Office of Human Resources, Box 149, 112 Zankel, 525 West 120th Street, New York, NY 10027, telephone (212) 678-3175).

We adhere to the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services and Employment Professionals as outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).  To review please see http://www.naceweb.org/principles/.

Representatives visiting Teachers College, Columbia University’s campus for recruiting purposes are expected to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws governing equal opportunity.

Interview Schedule/ Event Cancellation

If it is necessary to cancel interviews or information sessions, please do so as far in advance as possible. We expect recruiters to immediately notify participants and the Teachers College Career Services Office of any schedule changes.  You may contact Teachers College Career Services at 212.678.3140.

Offer Policy

Most students are not ready, nor should they be, to make a final decision before completing all of their interviews. Furthermore, pressure on the students to accept early offers makes it harder for the Teachers College Career Services Office to enforce Teachers College’s policy against reneging, detailed in the TCCS Recruiting Services Agreement, which Teachers College students must sign.   

Therefore, TC students may request extensions beyond your stated deadlines; we hope you can accommodate such requests.  Most employers have been very understanding and willing to give our students the time they need. We appreciate your cooperation in the past, and ask for your flexibility in the future.

Confidentiality Policy

All materials received from our students (letters, resumes, transcripts, via email or hard copy), as well as all email exchanges should be shared only with those persons at your firm involved in the hiring process.

Notification

The Teachers College Career Services Office may review job descriptions posted by any employer for appropriateness and content, and reserves the right to remove any job descriptions without notice or explanation to the employer.
