Career Treks allow employers to host UIW students at their facility. Many employers choose to take students on a company tour, facilitate hands-on learning activities, and simply show off what makes their company stand out. Students provide a captive audience of committed individuals, who have applied and been selected to attend your Career Trek. After the Career Trek, students will have the confidence to apply to open positions, as they have a strong understanding of your company culture. If you are interested in a Career Trek, contact us at email@example.com.
The University of Incarnate Word understands the importance of building a partnership of common goals between individual students hired and the employing organization. The Career Services Department of UIW is instrumental in achieving a successful match between both parties.Employers who post jobs, attend a career fair, or recruit on campus at UIW must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals, and the Policies & UIW Guidelines listed on this page.
There are basic foundation principles applied to guide career planning and recruitment and that is to provide job candidates the opportunity to make choices that will optimize their talents and meet their personal objectives through an open and free selection of employment and experienced-based learning. It is also significant to establish and maintain a fair and equitable recruitment process and lend support to help candidates make informed and responsible decisions regarding their employment.
In providing an open and free selection of students for employment and experiential learning opportunities, UIW’s Career Services reserves the right to take appropriate and necessary actions to enforce compliance with the above guidelines, maintaining a fair and equitable recruitment process among all students employed by UIW.
Connecting with and recruiting students is at no cost to the employer; however, when reserving interview rooms or any other space oncampus, employers will be charged a canceling fee for on-campus interview rooms, classrooms, or similar spaces.
Third parties (employment agencies and search firms) may not list openings online,recruit on-campus nor attend career fairs but are welcome to contact the Director of Career Services to discuss other options.
Beyond, UIW reserves the right to make a determination of the appropriateness of the positions being offered for the populations the agency serves.
Employers offering positions that provide compensation that is 100% commission based can offer these positions under the following conditions:
Whether you are developing an internship program or offering a one-time internship opportunity, you should be aware that The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division developed a six-factor test for determining whether workers are to be considered “interns” or “employees” under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The guidelines below will help you determine if the position should be considered an unpaid/credit internship or paid part-time job. By following these guidelines you will be sure to be in compliance with the criteria set forth by the FLSA.
We appreciate your interest in recruiting UIW students and look forward to our partnership in an effort to make for a dynamic recruiting experience!
