The Career Development Office reserves the right to approve any internship or job that does not support the interests of the university.

The University of Saint Joseph does not perform background checks on students applying for jobs. Therefore, employers are urged to request reference information from students to establish credentials and overall fit between the employer and job applicant.
Students who decide to accept off-campus employment must note that Financial Aid will not be affected by this decision.
