The Office of Career Development assists employers in connecting with Albion College students and the campus.
Albion College has a tradition of producing quality graduates trained in the liberal arts tradition in a setting which supports and encourages the practical aspects of professional preparation. The liberal arts curriculum, along with the many experiential learning opportunities available here (including internships, externships, off-campus programs, and professional concentration programs) provides Albion students with an exceptional education. It emphasizes the development of their critical thinking abilities, problem-solving, communication and leadership skills. Perhaps most important in today's world, Albion College graduates are well-trained in the process of learning.
Connect with Students
Employers are encouraged to come to campus and meet out students in person through on-campus recruiting. Want to do more than just post a job for students to apply? Do you want to develop a relationship with the students and faculty on campus? Contact the Office of Career Development for ideas for connecting your organization with Albion talent and use Albion's online recruiting tool.
Special Note Regarding Unpaid Internships
- Reference the FLSA Fact Sheet #71 to see if the intern 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.
- Consider the socioeconomic background of interns that cannot afford to accept an unpaid internship. We hope that you will consider providing opportunities to all students and not just those that have the money to take unpaid positions.
