Immediate Job Openings
You may have immediate positions available that would be suitable to a soon to be graduate, a recent graduate or an alumnus. We use Experience as our database to post online internships and jobs. You are encouraged to post your own internships and jobs from any internet connection into our database. You can also edit or reactivate postings at a later date. Please go to Experience and look for the employer section on the right side of the page. Click sign in to create an account or log in if you have set up a prior Experience account.
You may also send immediate job announcements via email in a Microsoft Word document to email@example.com and we will enter this information into Experience. Please note that this data entry method may take several days based on volume of jobs received.
Complete our Internship Announcement Form, so that we can post the opportunity and enter it into our database. Please be sure to include a description of the internship position, guidelines, qualifications and application instructions. It is also helpful to inform students whether the internship is paid or not paid.
Students can register an internship for academic credit, but they are not required to do so. Please read Internships: A Guide for Site Supervisors, which is the Muhlenberg guide for employers that are working with students wanting academic credit for their internship experience. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has compiled a list of best practices for internship programs.
This fact sheet provides general information to help determine whether interns must be paid the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the services that they provide to “for-profit” private sector employers. These are not new guidelines from the Department of Labor, but more attention has been paid to unpaid internships over the last few years.
Part Time/Seasonal/Camp Jobs
Please email part-time, seasonal and camp positions via email in a Microsoft Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a special location in our Career Center for these types of opportunities.
Formal Recruiting Program
You may know whether your organization needs to hire talent several months in advance. You can set up a resume collection or on-campus interview day. The Career Center sets a formal deadline and markets your open positions to students and targeted campus groups. Our recruiting program educates students on resume and job search techniques, as well as ethical practices in the search process through a required meeting. Our staff also does a quick critique of documents before sending them to you to make sure they meet your basic qualifications.
The Career Center welcomes organizations to our facility to conduct on-campus interviews. Our recruiting calendar runs from late-September to early-December, and mid-February through early-May. To request an on-campus interview date, please complete Option #1 on our Recruitment Information Form. You can interview students for internship opportunities or jobs requiring a bachelor’s degree.
The resume collection service is designed for employers who are unable to come to campus, but wish to seek Muhlenberg talent. To request a resume collection date, please complete Option #2 on our Recruitment Information Form.
The Career Center sponsors a Job & Internship Fair in the fall and participates in the Lehigh Valley Collegiate Career Expo (LVCCE) in February each year. Please email Laura Garland at email@example.com if you would like to be placed on the invitation list for the Muhlenberg fair. You may also visit www.lvcce.org if you would like to be placed on the invitation list for LVCCE.
Information Tables & Sessions
The Career Center allows organizations to reserve information tables and sessions as a means of relaying job/internship or career information to students. Employers are entitled to one table and two chairs either located on the Upper Level or Light Lounge of Seegers Union. Information tables are typically scheduled between 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis upon request. Each organization may only reserve one information table each semester. Information sessions can be scheduled during the day or early evening hours. Information tables and sessions cannot be scheduled during College breaks or finals weeks. Please email our Employer Relations Associate at PACareerCenter@muhlenberg.edu to reserve a table or information session.
