    • Please note: Career Services will verify the legitimacy of each employer who submits a request. Some of the things we look for are an active business license; a corporate email address that matches the company's domain (no personal email address such as gmail, yahoo, etc.); a working (not under construction) website; an active contact telephone number, and a commercial business address¬† (no PO Box or residential address). This list is not inclusive and may change depending on the organization's IRS status, in which case additional proof will be requested
