Can you send out a separate e-blast for my job or internship posting?

Due to the volume of postings we receive, we are unable to send a separate blast out for jobs or internships upon request.  For additional visibility (and an exclusive job/internship e-blast) consider conducting on-campus interviews for the position(s).  All postings we receive in a given week will be included in our weekly Career Center Update, sent to all students, faculty, and staff.

What are your policies on unpaid internships?

The Siena College Career Center supports NACE's stance on unpaid internships.  Read about NACE's position on unpaid internships.

We also encourage you to review the US Department of Labor's Fact Sheet on Internships AND the NYS Department of Labor's fact sheet on unpaid internships.  Please note that offering academic credit for an internship does not necessarily absolve a for-profit employer from the requirement of paying their interns.
