Internships and Jobs

Helping Students Find On/Off-Campus Jobs or Internships        

All jobs and internships are posted on Purple Briefcase, Viterbo University's Job Bank. Faculty were uploaded to the system and have access to the same jobs and internships. 

If you already have an account: Click on the logo and enter your username and password that you created for this system.

If you do not have an account: Follow this link.  All enrolled staff/faculty have an account and can log-in with their Viterbo email and a password of their choosing. Purple Briefcase will ask for your Student ID. Enter any six-digit number and select 'Submit ID.' Then select 'Create Pending Account.' You will be brought to a separate page where you can enter a password. Be sure to select "I am a Faculty/Staff" again. Your account will be approved within 24 hours. In the meantime, you do have partial access to the site and can browse jobs and internships. 


Helping Students Register a For-Credit Internship

All undergraduate internships, with the exception of PSYC-487, are run through Alyssa Gostonczik in the career services office. Students wanting to register their internship for credit should follow the instructions in the "I have secured an internship, now what?" section of the internship informational page

Unlike traditional classes, students may register for an internship at almost any point in the academic semester. Students may repeat up to 15 internship credits and apply them towards graduation. The internship class is offered online in fall, spring, and summer as a pass/fail course. 

Students also have the option of completing an internship for 0-credit. This option allows them to be paid by the Career Readiness Internship Grant, but the internship does not show up on their transcript.

A Faculty Guide to Ethical and Legal Standards in Student Hiring

The National Association of Colleges and Employers has established best practices for faculty involvement in student hiring efforts. These recommendations are to protect YOU, your STUDENTS, and the SCHOOL and are based on notions of fairness, equal opportunity, truthfulness, non-injury, confidentiality, and lawfulness.

DO
SHARE employment and internship opportunities with ALL of your students (post signs, send mass e-mail, send to the career center, and so forth)—do not hand pick students to share information with. 
ADHERE to FERPA guidelines when disclosing information about a student to employers and be sure to secure permission from the student to speak about them. All information shared should be firsthand and based when possible on factual or written documentation. 
CONSULT your campus career center on ALL employment and internship requests, including those seeking to connect with specific groups of students (by major, race, gender or other protected categories). 
|AVOID discussing personal matters and areas that fall outside the job requirements when providing references and recommendation.

DON’T
LIMIT opportunity and access by sharing information with select students. 
VIOLATE privacy and FERPA standards by disclosing information about top students, sharing information without student consent or sharing personal details unrelated to the job description. 
ASSUME that you are the only person with a relationship with the employer—share information with the career center so that strategic employer engagement can occur to ensure equal and fair service is provided to each employer. 
UNDERESTIMATE the liability assumed by you personally and by the school when the above standards are not followed.
