Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services & Employment Professionals.
College Placement Council, Bethlehem, PA.
This booklet presents the principles for professional conduct developed by the College Placement Council, Inc., the national professional association for career planning, placement, and recruitment. It is noted that the principles are designed to provide practitioners with three basic precepts for career planning, placement, and recruitment: (1) maintain an open and free selection of employment opportunities in an atmosphere conducive to objective thought, where job candidates can choose optimum long-term uses of their talents that are consistent with personal objectives and all relevant facts; (2) maintain a recruitment process which is fair and equitable to candidates and employing organizations; and (3) support informed and responsible decision making by candidates. The principles are intended to serve as a framework within which the career planning, placement, and recruitment processes should function, and as a foundation upon which professionalism can be promoted. The document provides a list of 12 principles for career services professionals and a list of 13 principles for employment professionals. Recommendations are given for problem-solving procedures and for obtaining an advisory opinion regarding an interpretation of the principles. (NB)
