Third-Party Recruiters

The Halifax Universities Career Fair’s policy on Third-Party Recruiters is in accordance with the accepted practices of the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) Ethical Recruitment Guidelines.


Third-party recruiters are defined as agencies, organizations or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment on behalf of others and not for their own needs.  The following guidelines for third-party recruiters have been established to best meet the needs of students, employers and educational institutions: 


  • No direct referrals will be made to vacancies listed by third-party recruiters without posting and/or contacting candidates with the information relating to the position. 

  • Third-party recruiters will be asked to identify their employer clients in order that educational institutions can determine that the position listed is an actual job vacancy and that it does not duplicate a vacancy already listed with the educational institution. 

  • 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.
