Career and Personal Development
Information for Employers
Thank you for your interest in recruiting Neumann University students. We can help you connect with students, student organizations and faculty in order to recruit talented undergraduate and graduate students.
Our internship program is a blend of academics and work experience. The Neumann intern is required to complete a minimum of 150 hours at their internship site concurrently with a 3-credit course. In the internship course, students will be assigned academic work relevant to the internship.
Must an Intern be Paid?
If your organization is a for-profit business, we strongly encourage you to offer compensation. Remuneration in an internship is greatly appreciated by the student and helps to create demand for the position.
Unpaid student internships will not violate the U. S. Department of Labor’s Fair Labor Standards Act if it is a training program which meets the following criteria:
|1. the training should be similar to that given in an educational environment;|
|2. the experience is for the benefit of the intern/student;|
|3. students do not displace regular employees and work under close supervision of existing staff;|
|4. the site sponsor provides the training and receives no immediate advantage from the activities of students;|
|5. students are not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the training period;|
|6. the site sponsor and student understand that the student is not entitled to wages for the time spent in training.|
