Job Posting Policy

Villanova University’s Career Center is a centralized center for Villanova’s undergraduate and graduate students, as well as for alumni. We use Experience’s recruiting online system (Handshake) for posting full-time, part-time and internship positions.   

The Career Center will post employment opportunities for companies and organizations that provide the following complete contact and job  information:

  1. First/last name and job title of contact person
  2. Company email address.
  3. Full mailing address  
  4. Telephone and Fax numbers
  5. Website address
  6. Description of company
  7. Job Title
  8. Job Description
  9. Skills and experience required
  10. Status of applicant (e.g. freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, master’s candidate, alumni)
  11. Location of position
  12. Compensation

Job opportunities are posted and assigned a 60 day application period.  Employers can contact the Career Center if a specific date is desired or if the application period should be extended.

The University’s Career Center reserves the right to determine the eligibility of a posting and to delete postings deemed unsuitable for our students.  We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or gender.  All positions requiring a fee for training or participation in a work experience or for any other reason are unacceptable and will not be posted.  Any position that does not support the interests of the University or our students will not be posted.

The Career Center strongly encourages employers to compensate interns in order to create a more competitive applicant pool.  Otherwise, you may prevent some of our highly qualified students from applying.  Companies positing unpaid internships must make it clear that the position is unpaid, or may be eligible for academic credit.

Third Party Staffing  firms must select “Third Party Staffing” as the Industry, provide the name of the client within the job description and choose the appropriate functions/tasks in the Job Function area when entering the position description.  Student information must not be provided to any other employer or used for any other reason than the original recruiting purpose.  Third-party recruiters charging fees to Villanova students will not be permitted to post positions or have access to any Career Center services. 

We do ask employers are asked to adhere to the following:
The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice

U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
