Career Services Policies for Employers

If you have questions or concerns regarding the following career services employer policies, please contact our assistant director, Karl Aldrich, at karl.aldrich@slu.edu.

Home-Based Business / In-Home Dependent/Childcare / Nanny Policy

We will only post positions based at commercial businesses. Home-based business, in-home dependent/childcare or nanny positions will not be posted. This is to ensure that Handshake provides students with safe and worthwhile work experience.

This policy applies to all opportunities, including full-time, internship and part-time positions.

Third-Party Staffing Firm Policy

Career Services defines any third party staffing to be any organization recruiting on behalf of, or providing any recruitment services to, another organization. If you or your company falls into this category, please see the details below on our policy regarding third party staffing firms.

Please create an employer profile on Handshake and request access to Saint Louis University.  After requesting access, a Career Services staff member will review and respond to the employer profile in Handshake.

Submitting a request for access to Saint Louis University in Handshake does not guarantee access.  If approved, employers must abide by the following requirements:

  • All positions posted must be internal to the third-party staffing firm OR clearly disclose the client for which the third-party staffing firm is recruiting
  • Review and abide by the NACE Principles for Third Party Recruiters

In the event that any member of an approved third-party staffing firm  fails to uphold the standards discussed above, access to Handshake and Saint Louis University students will be permanently terminated for the entire organization.

Fee-based Opportunities Policy

No organizations or employment opportunities that require applicants to pay any fee will be approved in Handshake. This policy does not apply to colleges and universities recruiting for academic programs.

Unpaid Internship Policy

Internship compensation must meet the U.S. Department of Labor standards. All internships for academic credit must be agreed upon by the student and their academic program.

Employment and Internship Offer Deadline Policy

All employers participating in on campus recruitment are required to give 2 full weeks for students to decide to accept or decline the offer.  All bonuses or other incentives should remain in full effect for the entire duration of the 2 week offer period.  The 2 week offer period will begin when a written offer is extended to the student.

Employer Tabling Policy

Employers can schedule a tabling session in Saint Louis University’s student center free of charge.  Table availability is pre-set each semester on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10a-2p and are reserved for employers on a first-come-first-served basis.  Employers cannot schedule more than 3 tables a semester.  All tabling session cancellations must be communicated at least 24 business hours prior to the schedule table.

If a tabling session is cancelled with less than 24 business hours notice or the employer no-shows to the reserved tabling session, the employer will be given a warning via email and reminded of the policy, but allowed to keep their remaining tabling reservations.

If there is a second offense, all future tabling sessions for the semester will be cancelled and the employer will be banned from tabling for the following semester.

Special consideration will be made for extenuating circumstances.
