Service Guidelines for Usage for Students, Alumni, Employers, and Vendors

Career Development Services acts only as a referral service, and makes no particular recommendations regarding off-campus employers. Career Development is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the high volume of jobs received by our offices, we are unable to research the integrity of each organization, business, or person listing a job with us. Therefore you, the student, are urged to undertake this responsibility yourself.
