Job Posting Policies 

The Center for Career Development has created the following policies to ensure that current students and alumni are treated fairly and are being recruited for legitimate positions.

  1. Lebanon Valley College cares about the safety and well-being of our students and families in the community.  With respect to job placement, childcare positions involve particularly sensitive vetting of both job candidates and potential employers. Lebanon Valley College’s Center for Career Development believes that our students and community families will be best served by using other placement services that are specifically designed to address these sensitive childcare job placement needs. 
  2. Positions which require a charge to the student will not be approved
  3. Job description provided must be detailed, clear, and comprehensive
  4. Compensation should be indicated and based on base salary (not including commission)
  5. Company/organization must have an active website and company email address (no personal email addresses will be permitted)

Employers are asked to adhere to the following: 

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Ethical Professional Practice

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

Handshake

Why Handshake?

Handshake is the recruiting platform used by Lebanon Valley College since July 2016. Handshake utilizes cutting edge technology to provide the employer with a user-friendly ability to manage the elements of your engagement with students at LVC. This includes features that allow you to post jobs and internships, manage on-campus recruiting, register for events and career fairs, and communicate with students and alumni who meet your qualifications. 

You are able to promote your brand through customizing your employer profile, events, and job posts. 

How do I create a Handshake account?

To Create Your Own Handshake Account:

Click on the "Employer" area at lvc.joinhandshake.com/register. You will be asked to pick your company from a list or create a new company. Any company whose email domain matches yours will be suggested. For example, if your email is "me@handshake.com", all companies using "handshake.com" will be suggested.

These are the options depending on your situation:

  • Claim Company: If you are the first user from your company to sign up for Handshake, and your company was pre-created by Career Development, then you can claim your company. We will then be notified of your request and verify your account, allowing you to take most actions in the system.
  • Join Company: If your company already exists and you are not the first user, select your company from the list of suggestions. One of the other Handshake users at that company or Career Development will need to verify you before you can access most site features. Notifications of your request to join will be sent to ensure that it is handled in a timely manner.
  • Create Company: If your company doesn't exist, you can create a new company. It will start out with the same name as your email domain. For example, if you signed up under "me@email.com", the company would be named "email.com". Click on the company name, then click "Edit" in the upper-right corner to update your company name and details.
