Create an Employer Account (Please register using a permanent staff member's name and email address as the organization's contact, and not someone in a temporary or internship position.)

Please note: If you are a local employer with part-time jobs for current IUP students, please go to Off-Campus Student Employment Job Posting.

Also available are on-campus recruitment events and sponsorships to give employers more exposure to IUP students.

Posting Policy

All employers wishing to recruit IUP students or post positions are required to work within a framework of professionally accepted recruiting, interviewing, and selection techniques and guidelines. This includes the policies set forth by the NACE Principles for Professional Practice and the United States Department of Labor FLSA Guidelines.

Note that we do not accept postings from the following:

  • Third-party recruiters who cannot disclose the employer they represent
  • Employers offering internships that do not provide a learning environment supported by supervision for their interns. Please note that all internship sites must be approved prior to an IUP student being approved for the internship, and that site approval may take as long as 45 days or more. Internship agreements are coordinated through Academic Affairs.
  • In most cases, employers must use a corporate email address. If a personal email address is used; e.g., Gmail, Yahoo, etc., employers and/or positions will be critiqued on a case-by-case basis.

All employment and internship postings are subject to approval, whether it is sent directly to the IUP Career and Professional Development Center and/or posted on the Handshake site. The IUP Career and Professional Development Center reserves the right to determine which postings are appropriate for inclusion in its database of listings.
