Policies and Guidelines
We review each posting individually and reserve the right to accept or decline any postings submitted through GWork. Review the U.S. Department of Justice’s Best Practices for Online Job Postings to ensure that your organization is in compliance with the law regarding work authorization when you’re recruiting at GW.
You are required to only post opportunities that require college-educated candidates in a manner that includes the following:
- All postings adhere to EEO compliance standards.
- Job postings are suitable and appropriate for GW students and alumni.
- Internship postings meet the U.S. Department of Labor definition and criteria for internships (PDF).
We do not play a role in determining whether an internship or co-op job qualifies for academic credit; neither do you as the employer. If a GW student wishes to earn academic credit for an internship, the student must consult his/her dean’s office.
Your role, if any, would be to assist the student by providing any information requested by the dean’s office so that a determination can be made about what kind of academic credit might apply.
When students earn academic credit in an experiential setting such as an internship, tuition must be paid to the university in exchange for that credit. A student’s individual course load and financial profile may determine whether or not he or she seeks credit for an internship. We encourage you to provide competitive hourly wages or stipends to help students defray the ever-increasing costs of living and tuition.
If you are offering unpaid internships, we expect you to comply with the six federal guidelines (PDF), particularly as it relates to internships.
