Why recruit at Biola?
Biola University is consistently ranked as one of America’s best Universities by US News & World Report and Forbes, and has become increasingly known for its academic quality and innovation. Biola enrolls more than 6,000 students each year, equipping them in mind and character for successful careers. The university’s six schools offer more than 150 academic programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels: School of Arts & Sciences, School of Education, Crowell School of Business, Rosemead School of Psychology, Cook School of Intercultural Studies, and Talbot School of Theology.
Employers regularly tell us how impressed they are by the caliber of our graduates which is why so many of them come back to us whenever they have recruiting needs.
Register with Biolalink, submit posting for approval, and respond to inquiries. It’s that simple.
Please note our posting approval criteria:
- The position’s title and job function must match the duties on the job description.
- Salary figures or salary ranges are required for every paid position, including stipend positions. 100% commission positions will not be approved. Salaries must comply with the Department of Labor’s minimum wage laws for the relevant work location.
- The organization’s web presence must instill a reasonably high level of confidence to our office’s review team (i.e., appearance, products, reputation, services, and contact information must meet our reviewer’s satisfaction).
- The organization must not encourage students to market any product, service, or business to other students or staff on Biola’s campus. The organization must not require an investment in inventory nor rely significantly on referral-based activity.
- Third-party recruiters must disclose the name of the client organization(s) where students/alumni will be working.
- An unpaid internship should be an extension of the classroom (i.e., it should enable students to apply classroom learning in the real world). It must not be primarily to advance the operations of the employer.
- An intern’s title must be appropriate for an internship role (i.e., it should not reflect a role which normally requires significant experience and/or is commonly a paid position in the workforce).
- An intern’s skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings and contribute in a strong way on a resume.
- An internship must have a substantive job description, reasonable qualifications, and a defined duration.
- An intern must receive supervision and routine feedback from a professional with expertise and/or professional background in a field related to the opportunity.
- An unpaid internship job description must include a statement that academic credit is a requirement of the position, and it is the student’s responsibility to arrange credit through an academic supervisor.
- Reasonable support (i.e., direction, equipment, facilities, etc.) must be provided by the employer to an intern receiving academic credit to ensure successful task completion and learning outcomes.
