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. Third Party Staffing firms must also agree and adhere to our Third Party Recruiting Guidelines which will be provided at the time of the Handshake request. 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 Career Center would like to allow organizations in the cannabis industry who legally operate within pertinent state laws to recruit Villanova students and alumni through university services. This includes educational and advocacy organizations, healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical organizations, financial services organizations, and consulting organizations. Similarly, we would like to allow students to earn academic credit for internships with organizations like these and to be eligible for funding for such experiences (provided that the donors do not object to such use of the funds). To comply with the University’s Policy on Drug-Free Schools and Drug-Free Workplace, the Career Center will not permit employers to post or recruit for retail positions that would have students involved directly with the possession, use, or distribution of cannabis, medically or recreationally. Cannabis-based companies interested in recruiting with Villanova University are required to agree and adhere to our Cannabis-Based Company Recruiting Guidelines confirming that the positions for which they will recruit will not have students involved with immediate possession, use, or distribution of cannabis with the exception of controlled research environments that do not involve human use. These guidelines will be provided at the time of the Handshake request.
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
