Focus on China, a company which promises to help students immerse themselves in the world’s most populous nation during their internships, was banned from posting positions with University Career Services (UCS), said Associate Director for Strategic Communications and Marketing Melissa Blake.
The company was removed after a user noted in a comment on a Reddit thread that the company makes interns pay for their positions, she said in an email.
“UCS was notified about the comments on the thread where students were discussing employers recruiting on campus,” she said. “UCS took action to investigate the claim and discovered it to be true. While an application fee for programs that connect students to employment opportunities overseas does not necessarily mean it is fraudulent, it is against our policy to have these types of listings in our system.”
