In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Center for Career Services releases student information only with the written permission of the student and only to identified employers. Re-disclosure of candidate information is strictly prohibited.

All employers must abide by Marymount University’s Center for Career Services Policies and the Principles of Professional Conduct for Career Services & Employer Professionals as established by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The Career Center reserves the right to deny Handshake accounts to any employer who fails to comply with our policies.
The Career Center will NOT list an opportunity (posting) if:
- The work assignment interferes with or negatively affects the academic progress of a student, or requires or encourages a student to discontinue his or her academic program of study
- The student is required to purchase or rent any type of sales kit or presentation supplies
- The student is required to pay a non-refundable fee for training or to participate in a work experience
- The student is assessed any sort of fee for the work placement
- The student would be employed by a private individual (e.g., babysitting, nanny, caretaker, tutor, pet care, etc.). We encourage individuals looking to hire for such positions to utilize SitterCity and Care.com. Our office encourages Marymount students utilize these sites when searching for these types of positions
- The job involves on-campus solicitation, posting of materials, or sales of products or services not authorized by Marymount University
- The employer site cannot be verified through a company-affiliated email address, physical address, phone number, or website
The Department of Labor has developed a six-factor test for determining whether workers are to be considered “trainees” (e.g., unpaid interns) or “employees” (hourly or salaried interns) that must be paid at least minimum wage under the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA). To list with the Career Center as an unpaid internship the following criteria must be met:
- The employer derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern
- The training is for the benefit of the intern
- The intern does not displace a regular employee
- The training, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to that which would be given in a vocational school
- The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the completion of the training period
- The employer and the unpaid intern understand the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in training
- Students may volunteer or donate their services to religious, public service, and non-profit organizations, without contemplation of pay, and not be considered employees of such organization
For additional information regarding compliance provisions of the FLSA, go to:
