1. Understanding Our Verification Policies

Our Employer Verification Policies guide what type of internship postings are allowed on Switch Idea. When employers post an internship, each listing gets reviewed against these policies. If your internship listing is not approved, please contact us.

2. Approval Process

Before an internship listing gets published on Switch Idea, it is reviewed to make sure they meet our Verification Policies. Typically most listings are reviewed within 24 hours, although in some cases it may take longer.

During the internship review process, we'll check your company website, registered address, targeting, and remuneration, in addition to the content of your listing. The listing you create will not be approved if the company website isn't fully functional.

After your internship listing gets reviewed, you'll receive an email update regarding the status of your listing. If it's approved, we'll start showing your posting and candidates can apply to it. You can see your applications in the My Postings page.

3. Steps to Take if Disapproved

If your posting does not get approved for not complying with our policies, you can create a new posting and re-submit for review. 

Check the email address associated with your employer account. If your posting doesn't get approved, we'll send you an email with details that explain the reason for non-approval. By using this information, you can re-submit your new listing and create a compliant one.
