For Employers

Recruiting Oglethorpe students means recruiting some of Atlanta’s most talented thinkers and doers. With rich liberal arts education, our diverse student population is made of qualified and eligible candidates for the workforce.

Learning to think critically is not a new trend for Oglethorpe students. For more than 75 years, OU students have participated in an intentionally designed sequence of courses called the CORE. OU students know how to relate concepts and ideas, even when complex. They think on their feet and are better prepared to motivate people and lead initiatives. The CORE at OU prepares students for every job they will ever have.

Oglethorpe University is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and abides by NACE principles for ethical and professional practice.

Types of Internships: There are two types of internships offered to students at Oglethorpe University: Academic for Credit and Not for Credit. In either case, Oglethorpe recognizes the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ (NACE) position on a legitimate internship.

Oglethorpe University expects organizations to appropriately compensate students for work they perform during an internship. We expect that all employers abide by the standards established by the Fair Labor Standards Act and accompanying regulations.
