• Employer FAQs

    Q: What should I know about Hamline students?
    A: Hamline students are diverse, (from 37 states and 42 countries; 39% are students of color and indigenous students with 52% of the 2020 incoming class being First Generation students) smart, (more than two-thirds receive academic scholarships) and involved in 80 student organizations, 20 intercollegiate athletic teams, and six music ensembles. Our students are hard-working, conscientious, community-builders, and have a strong sense for volunteerism with more than 150,000 combined hours of community service in 2016.

     Q: What recruiting services does Hamline offer?
    A: Hamline offers a variety of services for employer such as free online job posting, on-campus interviewing, information sessions, and tabling.  

    Q: How do I post a job or an internship opportunity for Hamline students? 
    A: All our job posting and on-campus recruiting activities are done through Handshake. Register for a Handshake account to post jobs or request on-campus recruiting activities. For employers using Handshake for the first time, these articles may be helpful. 

    Q: Are internships paid or unpaid?
    A: Students tend to respond better to paid positions. About 2/3 of our internships are paid. Offering a paid internship tends to bring a more productive pool of applicants. For information on the Department of Labor's guidelines regarding internship programs and compensation, see the fact sheet.

    Q: Do internships count for academic credit?
    A: A student will decide whether or not to use an internship for academic credit. If you are currently or are interested in supervising a Hamline intern, please visit the Employer Internship Guide page for more information.

    Q: Is it possible to present in a classroom?
    A: Generally, faculty members do not consider their class time to be appropriate for employer presentations. However, you can contact us at workshop@hamline.edu or 651 523 5802 to inquire about your own information session.
