Job Posting Requirement – Student Intern

Maria L. - Mar 25, 2016
Back to Ask the Experts

I understand there are only three exceptions to the job posting requirements; I am wondering if we need to post a position on our website and concurrently with the state job board and other diversity job boards for a student intern program. My company has participated in hiring a high school student through the Step-Up Achieve program organized by the City of Minneapolis and Chamber of Commerce, and other local organizations. The high school students are required to complete a program preparing them to work over the summer at businesses that support the program’s efforts and the students are placed based on their interest and the businesses need.

The question we have is – Does the Step-Up summer student internship position need to be posted? We use a 3rd party to post our job postings to state job boards and many other organizations. Since we do not necessarily get to choose the student that is placed with our company – although there can be a job interview – does it make sense to post the position because others who would not be eligible to participate in this specific Step-Up program may see it and apply.

Thank you for your assistance!
