Before posting an internship, please review the U.S. Department of Labor's Fact Sheet (PDF) on intern compensation. 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.
“We have found Seton Hill to be one of the finest local universities with which to work. Their career center uses technology to its fullest but have not neglected the personal touch and are willing to work with employers to make sure their openings are understood and reach qualified students. Their attention to detail is outstanding and they are exceptionally responsive.
