Handling Employer Calls

Faculty members may receive phone calls from employers requesting names of top students in their fields. It is important that you understand your responsibilities to maintaining a fair and equitable process for all students when faced with such requests.

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), of which Cornell is a member, provides you some guidance on this topic, so that you do not run the risk of contributing to an employer's unintended bias in hiring.
