General guidelines

Employers must adhere to all federal and provincial legislation pertaining to recruitment and other activities that may affect students and graduates of Capilano University.

It is not our role to monitor the recruiting practices of employers, but the Career Development Centre reserves the right to ban or suspend an employer from participating in any of its events and/or services based on student complaints, behaviour or actions by the employer contrary to the employer guidelines, and for any reason deemed necessary by Capilano University's Career Development Centre.  

We do not regularly vet or screen employers, although we reserve the right to contact you for more information and to refuse to post your advertisement.  Please note any advertisement asking students for an upfront payment or a photograph of themselves can be considered discriminatory/unethical and we may refuse to post your advertisement.  Any start-up costs (for example clothing, equipment, product, licensing fee) must be clearly identified in the job posting.

Please note that at Capilano University we do not post overseas opportunities as we are unable to easily verify the positions that we are encouraging our students to apply to.  Thank you for your understanding.

Unpaid internships

Current legislation in British Columbia requires at least minimum wage as hourly remuneration for positions which are classified as “work”.   Because of this, Capilano University will no longer accept postings for unpaid internships unless these are for a not-for-profit organization.
