Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards
"The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the leading source of information on the employment of the college educated and an organization to which a great number of academic and hiring organizations belong, provides a set of ethical standards for guiding the job-search process. Titled Principles for Professional Practice for Career Services & Employment Professionals, these standards are based on notions of fairness, equal opportunity, truthfulness, non-injury, confidentiality, and lawfulness."
When applying for employment, you will often be asked to provide professional letters of recommendation or a list of people to be contacted in the future by the prospective employer. These individuals should be able to testify to your skills, achievements, character, and more.
