The success of students in obtaining employment is important to a number of stakeholders on the university campus. Occasionally, helping students in their job searches can result in unanticipated illegal or unethical actions. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), to which many academic and hiring institutions (including Stony Brook) belong, provides a set of ethical standards for guiding the job search process: A Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring.
