Welcome to UVM, in-person &/or virtually!
Employers are essential partners in our mission to connect students to the people, opportunities & resources. Thank you for reviewing and honoring these responsibilities
Expectations for employers seeking to recruit with UVM:
Adhere to the National Association for Colleges & Employers (NACE) Principles for Ethical Professional Practice, the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Recruitment and Employment Guidelines, and the laws established by the federal government and the state of Vermont.
Share additional information, if requested, such as workplace policies and procedures, that will allow the Career Center to verify compliance with applicable laws, University policies, and ethics of practice.
Adhere the policies and procedures of The University of Vermont. This includes but is not limited to space utilization, parking, drug free schools, and carrying of firearms (concealed or otherwise). Please contact the Career Center for more information.
Expect only those services and information appropriate within all legal and ethical constraints imposed on the Career Center to be provided by the Career Center.
Once approved in Handshake, employers can post legitimate opportunities that follow ethical recruiting guidelines.
- Postings for external job boards, promotion of products or services to other students, requests for financial investments by the employee/intern/volunteer, home-based businesses, multi-level marketing, and/or international positions that can’t be assessed online or via best practice resources (e.g., SHRM, NACE, GoinGlobal) will not be approved.
On Campus Engagement
Employers wishing to come to campus should:
- Make all arrangements for presentations, career fairs and interviews—on campus or virtual—through the Career Center and operating within the limits of those arrangements.
- Stick to the schedule, marketing methods, and locations agreed upon, and announced to the University of Vermont community, allowing sufficient time for the Career Center to announce/publish their visit.
- Send a qualified interviewer or informed representative of the organization to meet with students.
- Ensure appropriate ethical and legal conduct of the organization’s representatives.
Internships + Micro-internships
Internships should consist of well-structured learning experiences with clearly outlined responsibilities, regular supervision and evaluation. Responsibilities should relate to the student’s academic or career interests.
Internships must meet the standards dictated by the US Department of Labor, as outlined in Fact Sheet #71 - Requiring that interns be paid minimum wage unless the intern is the “primary beneficiary” of the intern-employer relationship.
