Kellogg’s recruiting policies were developed in the best interests of our students, faculty and corporate partners. The recruiting experience is enhanced by adherence to these policies. They apply to any organization recruiting a Kellogg student. Organizations will be held accountable for the actions of their representatives; therefore we recommend that these policies be communicated to recruiters, interviewers and hiring managers.
The intention of these policies is to create an environment where students are able to make educated, purposeful decisions and create an equitable recruiting landscape for all employers. Failure to abide by these policies may necessitate sanctions* for the violating company.*Sanctions may include: inclusion on a list of non-compliant companies (located on the student website), implications for event/interview scheduling or restricted access to students.
On-campus recruiting is available for Full-Time or CMC eligible Evening & Weekend Kellogg students. Student populations that are not eligible for our services, and thus cannot interview in our building or participate in CMC scheduled events, include non-CMC eligible Kellogg students (Evening & Weekend, Executive MBA, PhD), alumni, Northwestern undergraduates or students in other Northwestern graduate programs and students from other universities. These non-eligible candidates may reach out to you and you are free to interview them outside of the Kellogg on campus recruitment process.
Please contact your Industry Relationship Manager if you would like to discuss the recruiting channels available for the broader Kellogg and Northwestern University student population.
Violations of Kellogg’s recruiting policies will be evaluated on a case by case basis. In addition to the policies above, Kellogg considers the following to be infractions of our recruiting policies:
Just as we expect our employers to adhere to stated policies, we have also established a Recruiting Code of Conduct for our students. If you feel that students are behaving in an unprofessional manner, please reach out to your contact on our team.
*Change in bonus incentives is acceptable.
