Handshake Posting Policy for Employers
UIC Student Employment reserves the right to refuse any employer access to posting positions on the Handshake system at any time.
All jobs and internships posted on Handshake must be career-related and/or professionally oriented.
Employers posting personal services positions listing an in-home, private residence, apartment, condo, etc. will be denied. Examples include caregiver, nanny, in-home tutor, personal aide, lawn care and cleaning/maintenance or any company positions that place students in residential homes.
Employers must provide a physical, verifiable address that is not a private home or residence. Employers who run their businesses out of a private residence, use a P.O. Box, UPS store or non-verifiable physical address will not be allowed to post positions.
UIC Student Employment implemented this policy in order to uphold our responsibility to the safety and well-being of our students. We do not perform any type of screening, security or background check on the residences for whom our students may be working. Additionally, we also do not perform any sort of screening, security or background check on the students that are hired for positions off campus. This policy is consistent with the policies present in student employment offices in universities throughout the country.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We appreciate your interest and continued support of UIC students.
