Job & Internships Posting Policies

Our goal is to build relations with organizations who are of interest to our students/alumni, and whose work is aligned with our institutional priorities.

These types of job and internship postings are not approved by the UVM Career Center:

  • Positions exclusively or primarily dedicated to promoting company products or services to other students. (eg: Campus ambassadors, campus reps) Campus ambassadors who promote internships or hiring programs are usually permitted.
  • Business opportunities that require financial investment by students/alumni.
  • Training or work opportunities that are not paid at the time the work/training is done, and for which the employee must pay for/pay back if they leave the program.
  • Internships that are really jobs.
  • Internships that do not involve regular and substantive supervision by the employer while the internship work is being conducted.
  • Opportunities that require students/alumni to join (paid or free) networks/groups/job boards in order to access the organization's information.
  • Organizations whose products and services are not aligned with UVM’s Common Ground Statement.
  • Organizations that are noted as having substantial scam reports or Better Business Bureau flags.
  • Opportunities to engage in work or promote products or services that are offered already at UVM. (eg: tutoring fellow students)
  • International jobs or internships that have expensive program fees and/or are not easily assessed online or via best practice resources, such as NACE, Going Global or UVM alumni on LinkedIn. Credit-bearing international internships should coordinate with the UVM Office of International Education to facilitate credit transfer. Non-credit internships and international jobs will be screened according to our overall policies, with an alert in the system to students to do their own due diligence research.
