Referral & Recruitment Guidelines for Faculty, Employers & Students

We accept professional full-time, part-time, internship and graduate school opportunities. If you know of a great opportunity for our students or alumni or if an employer contacts you regarding a student job or internship opportunity, please encourage the employer to post the position on JBU Handshake. This will help create a win-win situation for our students and the employer by maximizing the number of JBU students who have the opportunity to express interest, ensuring the employer has a diverse applicant pool and enabling the Career Development Center to expand employment opportunities and develop recruiting relationships.

 

The NACE Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards of Student Employment explains the legal and ethical principles governing student referrals to employers. By following these principles, you can help JBU foster a community of opportunities available to all students. If you have questions about the student referral process, please do not hesitate to contact the Career Center at CDC@jbu.edu.

FACULTY TESTIMONY

We were so thankful to incorporate the Vocational Expedition Program into the Spring Transfer Gateway course. 

The focus of the course is community, vocational discipleship and faithful learning. The VEP offered a wonderful self-assessment, vocational assessments, follow-up one-on-one appointment and an in-class vocational discipleship presentation.  Everything tailored so well with the course objectives, outcomes and activities.  Some incredible outcomes of VEP:

  • Students were challenged and grew in their faith
  • Some students redirected their major as a result of VEP
  • Students were strengthened and developed toward their vocational goals

We aim to include VEP in future Gateway courses. 

Thank you Career Development!
