Please note that network marketing companies are not eligible to participate in job or career fairs, on-campus interviewing, resume referrals, employer presentations, or sponsorships for on-campus activities.
A network marketing company is defined as one that engages in the following practices:

  • Sponsors individuals to set up their own businesses for the purpose of selling products or services and recruiting other individuals to set up their own businesses;
  • Requires an initial investment (payment of a fixed fee, payment to attend an orientation or training session, or purchase a starter kit) from an individual, with the organization itself serving as an umbrella or parent corporation;
  • Offers compensation in the form of straight commission on the individual’s own sales revenue, as well as on the sales revenue of the sales force recruited by the individual and his or her recruits (also known as downline).

Colleges and universities will not be allowed to participate in College of Business Career Fairs with the exception of the University of Louisville. This event is geared towards job seekers, and we encourage schools to participate in alternate university events that are more focused on students considering graduate school.
