 Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

 
The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act requires that we will obtain consent from students and alumni before releasing their profile and resume information. You may use this information only to fill employment vacancies within your own organization. Any information you acquire from profiles and/or resumes may not be redisclosed to any other employer or third party, and you may not disclose the information to individuals within your own organization for other than employment purposes. Further detail is available from the U. S. Department of Education website.
 

 Fair Labor Standards - Intern Compensation

 
Employers are expected to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act with regards to intern compensation. Briefly, this specifies that employers in the for-profit private sector need to pay interns at least the minimum wage and applicable overtime unless they meet the six-part test for unpaid interns. Unpaid internships in the public sector and for non-profit charitable organizations, where the intern volunteers without expectation of compensation, are generally permissible. Find details on the U. S. Department of Labor website or fact sheet.
 

 Office Policies

 
Our full range of services is open to employers who recruit candidates for salaried or hourly-compensated positions on their own payrolls. Employers offering commission-only positions must clearly identify this if listing positions with us or in the recruiting process. Third party organizations are welcome to post positions with us, but they must disclose the employer with whom they have contracted and verify that no fees will be charged to applicants. We reserve the right to edit or refuse publication of vacancy descriptions submitted to our office.
