Recruit Pitt Panthers
Are you interested in recruiting interns from Pitt?
Pitt students are eager to gain hands-on experience in the real world as undergraduates. We can help to connect students to your opportunities through Handshake and our Internship Prep Program. We are glad to assist your organization with drafting an internship description, developing a new internship program, enhancing an existing program, training for optimal use of Handshake, and marketing to our students.
Below are some critical resources to assist you with your recruitment.

Responsibilities for Academic Internships (For Credit)
There are Federal and State guidelines and standards which determine whether interns should be paid at least the minimum wage and overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act for the services that they provide to “for-profit” private sector employers. For more information, visit the Federal Department of Labor’s fact sheet here http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.htm and also identify and review the requirements for the applicable Department of Labor for the State. By posting an unpaid internship in Handshake you attest that you have reviewed the Federal and State guidelines, and your organization’s unpaid internship meets the required standard.
