Quicken, Inc. ("Quicken") has an internal recruiting department. Quicken may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters ("Agency"). Agencies are hereby specifically directed NOT to contact Quicken employees directly in an attempt to present candidates – Quicken's recruiting team or other authorized Quicken personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.
To protect the interests of all parties, Quicken will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to Quicken, including unsolicited resumes sent to a Quicken mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to Quicken employees, or to Quicken's resume database will be considered Quicken property. Quicken will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. Quicken will consider any candidate for whom an Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.
Agency must obtain advance written approval from Quicken's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. Quicken will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such agreement in place.
Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing and signed by an officer of Quicken or his or her designee. No other Quicken employee is authorized to bind Quicken to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by Agencies. Quicken hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of a Quicken officer.
