Employer FAQ’s

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.

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 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.
