Recruiting Guidelines for Employers and Recruiters

All jobs & internships posted on the Handshake website or advertised through the Center for Career Connections at Bellevue College must follow these guidelines. Internships may be paid or unpaid, but if they are paid, they must also follow these guidelines.

  1. Only regional jobs and internships may be posted on our site. For virtual positions we will review and approve if acceptable.
  2. Although remote jobs and internships are definitely acceptable, jobs and internships may not require the employee to travel to a home-based business, unless that building has a separate entrance for the licensed business. As such, we cannot usually post requests for in-home healthcare, child care, or tutoring from families. Once the pandemic is over and the college returns to regular operations, if you would like to post an in-home position, you may contact Student Programs at (425) 564-6150 for information about posting on the Bellevue College community bulletin board, located in the Cafeteria / Student Union.
  3. Employer must have a current business license.
  4. Jobs must pay a guaranteed hourly wage or salary that is not based on a minimum deliverable of sales or performance.

We do not accept the following types of jobs:

  • Opportunities that require any equipment or products to be purchased, rented, or borrowed by the prospective employee in order to earn their wage. This is true prior to being hired, after the employment offer, and after employment has commenced.
  • Opportunities that charge for any training that is required prior to employment. Required training must also pay an hourly wage to the prospective employee.
  • Commission-only pay and multi-level marketing opportunities.

We require that you:

  • Provide a safe environment for your employees
  • Are an Equal Opportunity Employer
  • Comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act

Right of refusal: We reserve the right to refuse service if an organization has any unresolved investigations, complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau, or for any other reason.
