Thank you for your interest in hiring ESU students and alumni. We have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions below to jump-start your recruiting efforts.
- When are ESU Career and Internship Expos?
Every semester, ESU has a Career and Internship Employment Expo open to all students and alumni. We hope you will consider coming out to the university to meet the students and introduce them to internships, part-time and full-time career opportunities. All of our events, including Career and Internship Expos can be found listed in WarriorCareers under the Events tab. Sponsorship and partnership opportunities are also available.
- Do you offer on-campus interviews?
Yes, on campus interviews are held in our Career Development Center offices and are offered throughout the academic year to fit your recruiting needs. Contact Career Development at (570) 422-3219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- How do I post a position on your job board?
Focus your recruiting efforts and get targeted results by posting open job positions and collect student résumés online. Employer opportunities are posted to WarriorCareers. The first step to posting your open position is to create an account on the system. Once you have an account, you’ll be able to post your position.
When you receive résumés from qualified students, you may contact them to arrange an interview at your place of business or on campus. We will work with you on each step of the process. To schedule, please contact Career Development at (570) 422-3219 or email email@example.com
- What kind of positions can I post?
We allow full-time and part-time professional positions that require a degree and align with our employer policies. You are also able to post internships that meet our definition of an internship: a hands-on and career related experience, that supplements classroom academic experience to enhance a student’s education. Part-time and volunteer opportunities are also permitted for posting.
- How do I recruit for interns?
Internships are a great way for you to get to know potential employees. Students benefit by contributing in a real-world business environment, while employers benefit by seeing how productive ESU’s highly trained and motivated students can be in a professional setting. Many students have been offered permanent, professional positions as a result of their participation in the internship program.
Helpful Information for a Successful Internship Program
Having a dedicated internship coordinator can help facilitate the process for all involved. This could be a human resources representative, an office manager or project or team leader; whoever it is, they should have the capacity to implement the following:
Write Job Description, Solidify Pay and Hours, and Post the Opening
Internship descriptions should clearly state:
Post the position to WarriorCareers recruiting database.
Eligibility for Academic Credit for Internships
Students may have the option to participate in ESU’s three-credit academic internship during their junior and senior year, managed by the appropriate faculty internship coordinator. In addition, during the internship, the intern’s supervisor will be asked to complete a performance evaluation for the student.
- How much should I pay my intern?
We strongly encourage employers to compensate interns. Interns can add significant value to your organization and a paid internship may also create a more competitive applicant pool. Companies posting unpaid internships must make it clear that the position is unpaid and are encouraged to review the NACE position statement on U.S. internships and compensation and the criteria put forth by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
Levels of Internship Compensation
Typically, intern wages for undergraduate majors range from $10-$20 per hour, while students in the graduate programs may earn $15-$25 or greater.
- What are other ways that I can be involved on your campus?
Opportunities exist to sponsor a variety of our events or the publications associated with these events. Examples of special events include:
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (570) 422-3219 for more information about sponsorship involvement.
Within our service delivery, we are consistently looking for classroom speakers, opportunities for real-world student projects, judges for competitions and mentors for students.
