Policies:

Career Services reserves the final right to determine which postings are appropriate for inclusion in its database of listings. We do not accept postings from the following:

1.  Third party recruiters or  staffing agencies, unless the position is within the company's office.
2.  Employers offering full-time positions listed with  a rate of pay lower than minimum wage (internships may be non-paid or compensated with a stipend).
3.  Employers offering internships that do not provide a learning environment supported by supervision for their interns.
4. As a private and Catholic institution, The Catholic University of America reserves the right to post opportunities at its discretion.

 

Employer accounts must be linked to a professional e-mail address, preferably one that directly reflects the name of the organization (such as @cua.edu). Use of a personal e-mail system (such as yahoo and g-mail) for an organization must be approved in advance with the Office of Career Services or the opportunity may not be posted.

Non-discrimination policy:
All employers are expected to abide by the non-discrimination policy of The Catholic University of America.

CUA's Privacy Policy is available here.

Post An Internship

Any internship posted must follow all United States Department of Labor FLSA Guidelines. Posting an internship in Cardinal Connection serves as verification that you have read and will abide by these guidelines.

Note on unpaid, for-credit internship opportunities:
Internship opportunities that are offered for academic credit can only be posted until the the last day students can drop or add a class for that semester.
                                    Last Day To Post
Term                            For-Credit Internship
Spring 2014                  January 24, 2014

Fall 2014                      September 5, 2014

While there is no limit to the number of internships that an organization can post, the Office of Career Services limits the term of internship postings. No posting can remain active beyond a single recruiting season (Spring, Summer, or Fall). The major advantage for the organization is that tailoring the internships to each semester for applications will help keep the opportunity in the front of the search results as well as clearly indicating for potential applicants the season for which they are applying.
