When is the virtual job fair?

The employer seminar is from 10:00-11:00 am on July 20th. We will walk you through setting up your job and getting it posted for students to see. 

What students will be involved?

This is a campus-wide event, so you will have access from all of our schools looking at your opportunity. In addition, we will have graduate and undergraduate students in the pool. 

How many students will I have the opportunity to interview?

The minimum number of students really depends on the type of project and if it aligns with the goals of the students. But, you will have a maximum of 8 students to interview.  

What type of projects can/should I post?

If it is something you need done, consider posting it. Micro-internships can be any project that a business needs completed. Generally, if is something that takes between 5 and 40 hours to complete. Projects could range from finance, accounting, sales, business development, human resources, strategy, marketing, research, and operations.  

How much do I pay?

Micro-internships are paid by the project rather than by the hour. Generally, the project should pay under $600, total. When figuring out how much to pay, estimate the number of hours and multiply by $10-$15.  

Do I have to collect taxes and/or provide a 1099?

No. As long as the project is under $600, you, as the employer, do not have to fill out a 1099 for the student. They are considered an independent contractor. 

When will I get to look at students’ resumes?

Students will begin to look at your postings starting on the evening of June 29th. You will have access to student resumes once they start signing up for interview slots on the 30th
