If these criteria are followed, it is the opinion of NACE that the experience can be considered a legitimate internship.

Once your positions are posted in HireNKU, there are additional ways to advertise your positions and let qualified students know that you're hiring.
1. Search for students using HireNKU (access to this is limited). You can search by majors, key words, student involvement, leadership experiences, skills, and more! Once you find qualified students, you can view their resumes or send a mass email.
2. Identify related student organizations (examples: Women in Informatics, Sports Business Club, Early Childhood Education Club, Psi Chi & Psychology Club, etc.) Contact the student group directly to discuss possible ways to connect, such as bringing a guest speaker, a case study, or providing sponsorship. Use NKU's MyEngage site to find organizations.
3. Attend career fairs in the semester before your new hires will start (attend Career Expo in February to recruit May grads). Career fairs are the best way to build brand presence on campus and generate interest in your organization.
4. Partner with our colleagues across campus to help generate interest in your positions and to build brand presence on campus.
