The following opportunities will not be allowed on Sullivan University job boards or other posting platforms:

  4. Opportunities outside of the United States of America (company/organization must be headquartered in the United States to be able to post opportunities).
  5. Internships conducted virtually or that appear to be self-directed.
  6. Part-time student positions or internships paid on a commission-only basis
  7. Positions which require the student or graduate to participate in non-paid training or require the purchase of a sales kit or other materials as a condition of employment.
  8. Positions that pay for work in cash or other informal work/pay arrangements.

Fraudulent Positions and Questionable Hiring Practices

Due to the increased presence of fraudulent positions, phishing scams, and questionable employment opportunities, Sullivan University staff reviews every posting prior to uploading to the student job board.  Although we cannot guarantee the integrity of every position, we take every effort to protect students, and the reputation of our employers, from fraudulent activity.

Information Required for All Positions to be Posted:

  • Provide a physical, commercial address
  • Valid website URL
  • Specific contact individual named, including email address and phone number.  Email addresses that do not match the website domain and that cannot be verified as belonging to the organization will not be approved 
  • Postings must include a clear and concise description of the available position
