Radford University Employer Recruiting Policies and Expectations:

Radford University Center for Career & Talent Development cordially invites employment recruiters to partner with us to provide career, internship, and other experiential opportunities for RU students and alumni.

Employer Expectations:

Employment recruiters who wish to make use of the assistance, services and/or facilities must comply with Radford University Code of Ethics , Nondiscrimination Policies, RU Job & Internship Posting Standards (see below) and adhere to employment laws and principles of professional practice, as outlined by the federal government and The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice.


Internships may be paid or unpaid, but MUST follow the U.S. Department of Labor's Fact Sheet #71: Internship Programs Under the Fair Labor Standards Act. We strongly encourage employers to arrange, at minimum, some kind of stipend for an unpaid internship to cover students travel and lunch expenses. This will help increase your applicant pool.

The average hourly intern wage for bachelor's degree-level interns during the 2015-16 academic year was $17.69 according to the NACE 2016 Internship & Co-op Survey.

Students using Career Services are advised of their rights under federal law, and of the method for filing a complaint with the appropriate agency. Each interviewer should be familiar with the RU Career Services recruiting guidelines as well as the equal employment provisions of federal law.

Questions & Complaints:

Should you have any questions or complaints, please contact Carolyn Sutphin, Any complaint that a recruiting employer has failed to conform to this policy with regard to hiring will be investigated to determine whether such practices have indeed occurred.
