Posting internship positions
We are pleased to invite you to join IUPUI on Handshake, our new career services platform, which is now being utilized by all IU campuses.
IUPUI’s move to Handshake makes it even easier to post to all IU campuses. When posting an internship opportunity, you will now be able to quickly select any IU campus for your positions. This new approach will continue to be enriched with support from the career services offices on IU’s campuses and schools, and it vastly simplifies employer engagement with IU. Likewise, it will make it much easier for IUPUI students to find internships for which they are qualified.
Need help creating an internship position or program? Contact Brian Benedict, assistant director for internships (firstname.lastname@example.org), or contact a specific school's career services office directly, and we will be happy to assist you.
Guidelines for internships
The IUPUI Career Services Council has developed guidelines specific to the university that must be followed for recruiting and hiring students from the campus.
Employers are encouraged to pay interns. If you want to post an unpaid internship, it must meet the guidelines set forth by the Fair Labor Standards Act for internship programs.
When recruiting interns, employers are expected to follow the Principles for Employment Professionals set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in their recruiting and selection practices.
Employers should also ensure compliance with EEOC laws that are designed to protect both the employer and student workers.
Third-party recruiters are welcome to recruit interns from IUPUI for their clients. The hiring company must be disclosed in the job posting. In addition, there must be no cost to the student for any services provided in the recruitment and placement process.
