Villanova University’s Career Center is a centralized center for Villanova’s undergraduate and graduate students, as well as for alumni. We use Handshake for posting full-time, part-time and internship positions.
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 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.
The Villanova University Career Center does not post non-professional positions on Handshake. If you are currently recruiting students for a paid position that is unrelated to academic pursuits, below are a few websites to consider. Please note: the Career Center does not endorse any specific website or service.
- Snagajob - job posting site dedicated reaching applicants for hourly positions. Fees for posting may apply.
- WayUp - job posting site and candidate search dedicated to the recruitment of college students. Fees for posting may apply.
- Indeed - job posting site for all types of positions. Free basic services and postings available.
- QuadJobs - job posting site catering to students with a busy schedule.
Villanova University cares deeply about the safety and well-being of Villanova students and families in our community. With respect to job placement, childcare positions involve particularly sensitive vetting of both job candidates and potential employers, including some new background check requirements under Pennsylvania law that may apply.
Villanova University's Career Center believes that Villanova students and community families will be best served by using other placement services that are specifically designed to address these sensitive childcare job placement needs.
Such services include, without limitation:
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)
Employers must always use corporate email addresses, not personal email address, for posting purporses; Gmail, or Yahoo, etc. domains are not accepted.
