Job and Internship Posting Disclaimer and Safety Tips
UNC Career Services requests information from entities who wish to post job or internship openings within Bears Career Connection in order to attempt to assess their legitimacy and screen out entities about which may not comply with applicable employment laws. Career Services also considers information it receives from students regarding their interactions and experience with entities who have posted within Bears Career Connection in determining whether organizations’ posting will be allowed. The University of Northern Colorado does not, however, affirm or represent that a posting or opportunity for a job or internship, whether paid or unpaid, complies with the Fair Labor Standards Act and/or other applicable Federal and State Labor and Employment Laws. Responsibility for information disseminated, and experiences gained, through interaction with any web site, representative, or posting, resides with the posting organization. Please be conscientious when inquiring about any job or internship opportunity/posting. Below are a few tips to consider when engaging in such inquiries.
Consider carefully whether to submit your information for a job or internship opening if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the following questions:
- Does the email of the ‘recruiter’ appear to be a personal email (e.g. gmail, yahoo, aol, etc.) address?
- Does the posting offer a large salary, require little experience, and claim you can work your own hours?
- Are the job duties unclear and/or is the written information provided ungrammatical?
- Does the employer require or supply money for any purpose in order to act on your expression of interest in the position?
If you have had an experience with an organization that has posted a job or internship opening that you believe has infringed on your employment rights, please provide Career Services with this information for its consideration in determining whether to allow further postings by that organization. If the interaction resulted in physical, emotional, and/or psychological harm, please contact the UNC Police Department and/or UNC Counseling Services.
