Third Party/Network Marketing Policy

Job Listing and Company Recruiting Policy:

The University of Wyoming Career Services works to connect our students and alumni with varied kinds of bona fide employment opportunities. We encourage organizations large and small, in the public or private sector to utilize our services.  However, the University does not consider the below organizations as “employers” and thus they are not eligible to participate in job postings, career expos, on-campus interviewing, résumé referrals, employer presentations, or sponsorships for on-campus recruiting activities.

1. Network Marketing Agencies

A network marketing company is defined as one that engages in the following:

  •  Sponsors individuals to set up their own businesses for the purpose of selling products or services and/or recruiting other individuals to set up their own businesses

  •  Requires an initial investment (payment of a fixed fee, payment to attend orientation or training session(s), and/or the purchase of a starter kit or product samples)

  •  Offers compensation in the form of straight commission, fees from others under their sponsorship in the organization, and/or a percentage of sales generated by others

  •  Offers compensation in the form of merchandise (commonly known as “swag”)

2. Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Agencies (similar in scope to Networking Marketing Agencies)

A MLM company is defined as one that engages in the following:

  • Has a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit. 

  • The compensation structure is commission-only or a draw. A draw is a pay advance against expected earnings or commissions.

  • Position is usually based out of the hired employee's home or, candidate is expected to report to another person's home to complete the work; thus not having an office structure where the employee reports to regularly or on a consistent basis.

3. Third Party Agencies

These organizations (search firms, placement services, etc.) that are not considered the employer-of-record are offered job positing assistance ONLY when they meet the following:

  • Provide disclosure of vacancy position(s) and employer represented for recruiting activities

  • Acknowledges that University Career Services may verify with the employer the third party’s recruiter relationships

  • We reserve the right to review all postings for legitimacy and accuracy:  Third Party Agencies are not eligible for other employer services.

4. Other companies/job notices not falling under the above categories

Occasionally we are contacted to list positions that fall under the service industry and are not considered to be ‘professional’ student/post-graduate employment opportunities (i.e. babysitting, nanny, landscaping, bartender, housekeeper, etc.). These types of positions will be screened and posted on a case-by-case basis depending upon the type of position and requirements expected.

Any questions about these policies, which fall in-line with the Collegiate Career Services Association of CO and WY (CCSA), can be directed to the Advising • Career • Exploratory Studies Center at 307-766-2398.
