Overview of Internships for employers

Employer User Policy

The University of Rhode Island Center for Career and Experiential Education strives to provide information that will connect the University of Rhode Island students and alumni to the best possible job opportunities that offer training, support, and structure in student employment, internships or entry-level positions after graduation. The Center for Career and Experiential Education makes its facilities and services available to organizations for employment listings, campus interviewing, career fairs and information sessions. Our services for employers are designed to assist them in their efforts to hire qualified personnel and afford URI students opportunities to examine career options without disrupting their academic pursuits.

ELIGIBILITY FOR USE OF CENTER SERVICES

It is expected that employers will interact with students, alumni, and Center for Career and Experiential Education staff in a professional and ethical manner, including providing complete information about their organization and conditions of employment within their organization. Employers must also meet the following requirements to be eligible to use the URI Center for Career and Experiential Education facilities and/or services:

  • Must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines, the National Association of Colleges and Employers Principles for Professional Practice, and the The University of Rhode Island Center for Career and Experiential Education’s Employer User Policy. The Center reserves the right to decline approval for any employer job posting or access, as we deem appropriate.
  • Comply with the NACE Internship Principles regarding unpaid internships. (http://www.naceweb.org/connections/advocacy/internship_position_paper/
  • Comply with “for profit” private sector employer standards regarding unpaid internships as set by the Fair Labor Standards Act: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.pdf
  • Supply current contact information including organization name, address, contact person, domain/company based email address, phone number, physical address, organization description, pay rate (if applicable), detailed description of position, and preferably a website.
  • Keep all student information obtained confidential unless receiving additional written student consent. This standard complies with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Compensation

It is expected that positions for which the organization is recruiting will provide a guaranteed salary of at least minimum wage. A draw against future earnings does not constitute a salary. However, employers offering commission-based positions for full-time career positions may use the University of Rhode Island Center for Career and Experiential Education if they inform the Center and interviewees of the specific manner in which remuneration is to be determined. No commission-based part-time or internship positions will be posted unless approved by the Center on a case-by-case basis.
All positions for which the organization is recruiting must provide compensation that does not rely on recruiting others to join the organization.

Fees Charged to Candidates

Those companies requiring candidates to invest, purchase supplies, or pay a fee as a condition of employment will not be allowed access to any Center services. This includes startup or training fees. Positions which require students and alumni to purchase a franchise or “business opportunity” will not be allowed access to services.

Third Party Recruiters

Third-party recruiters as defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as: Third-party recruiters are agencies, organizations, or individuals recruiting candidates for temporary, part-time, or full-time employment opportunities other than for their own needs. This includes entities that refer or recruit for profit or not for profit, and it includes agencies that collect student information to be disclosed to employers for purposes of recruitment and employment. The term “third party recruiters” refers to, but is not limited to: employment agencies, staffing services, temporary agencies, on line job boards, recruiters, and contractors. Representatives from these companies may post under the following conditions:

  • They must fully disclose to the Center the name of the client that the third-party recruiter is representing and to whom the students’ credentials will be disclosed.
  • They must keep all student information obtained confidential unless receiving additional written student consent. This standard complies with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
  • They must not retain any student resumes for future placement unless given additional student written consent.
  • They must not charge a fee to the applicant.

Certain employers will not be allowed to recruit through the Center:

  • Employers who fail to meet the conditions of our Employer User Policy.
  • Employers who post positions requiring employees to sell products or services door to door (cold calling). This is for the safety and security of our students.
  • Employers who request personal data (i.e. social security number, bank account information) at the time of application.
  • Employers who misrepresent their organization by providing dishonest information or omitting critical information.
  • Employers who want to post any position related to the adult entertainment industry.

Again, the University of Rhode Island Center for Career and Experiential Education reserves the right to decline approval for any employer job posting or access, as we deem appropriate. Any reported breach of any part of this policy will result in the termination of all future opportunities to recruit URI students and alumni through the Center.
