Recruiting employers must follow all labor laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, and ensure that employment access is available to all qualified candidates.

For the safety of our students, Career Services does not accept job/internship opportunities that are based in private residences, lack a robust website and/or matching email domains for contacts, or are located outside of the continental United States. Career Services also reserves the right to exclude organizations or postings that do not fit or are in conflict with the Lewis University Mission and Values, or are believed by the University to not be in the best interest of our students/alumni.
