Accuracy of Job Descriptions
Employers are responsible for ensuring that their job, internship and/or volunteer description is an accurate reflection of the duties of the employee. Please include the name and details of the company, a clearly stated description, qualifications, responsibilities, contact information and application deadline.
Internships should involve work that is relevant to a student’s academic training. If your internship is mostly administrative or cold-calling, the description must state clearly what percentage of the work will be of this nature.
Federal laws prohibit job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay and disability. These guidelines are available from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In addition, the New York City Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination based on gender (including gender identity and sexual harassment), sexual orientation, marital status and partnership status. The Office of Career Development, Wellness and Disability Services will not post positions that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Employers must offer a safe and appropriate work environment for students.
Employers will not engage in sexual harassment as prohibited by the Policy Against Sexual Harassment of the City University of New York.
Deadlines on Accepting Positions
Employers should allow students at least 24 hours to decide on whether to accept a job or internship.
