Privacy Policy of the Career Services Office

PVCC's Career Services Office is committed to protecting the privacy of the electronic personal information of its users. We operate computer systems that are developed by our technical group and also partner with external organizations for our job listing, resume database and on-campus recruiting services.

JobNet is the online system used by PVCC's Career Services Office for job listings, resume database and on-campus recruiting services. These services are provided through the NACElink Network, a web-based recruiting system resulting from an alliance between the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a nonprofit professional organization for career centers and employers, the Direct Employers Association, a nonprofit association of national employers and Symplicity, a state-of-the-art technology provider of web-based tools and software solutions. For details on their privacy practices, please review the NACElink Network Privacy Policy and the Direct Employers Privacy Policy. All privacy policies for our partners have been reviewed by the Career Services Office.

Data Collection and Usage 
Data collected by the Career Services Office for in-house systems is stored on NACElink secure servers and is used to provide and tailor services to our customers. These systems use cookies and some collect system information such as IP address and browser versions. Cookies are a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store on a Web browser so that it can be read back from that browser. Information is also used to construct aggregate reports that assist us in program planning. Any information shared with third parties is only shared in aggregate form. Collection and access to student information is governed by federal and PVCC policies under the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Jobs posted on the JobNet/NACElink system may or may not be reviewed before posting. Employers may post jobs directly to the site and the presence of job announcements on this Web site does not indicate an endorsement from PVCC's Career Services or the College. The Career Services Office acts only as an intermediary between employers posting job opportunities and candidates searching for job opportunities. The Career Services Office is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates.

Students are responsible for all necessary precautions when applying for these positions and for checking the credentials of an employer. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers with unknown employers.

External Web Sites 
As a convenience, PVCC's Career Services Office creates links to other Web sites which may help students in exploring career and education options. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these additional Web sites.

The Career Services Office is not affiliated with NACE and NACElink; therefore, PVCC cannot guarantee, nor does it otherwise accept responsibility for, any portion of this statement that depends upon NACE's representations and its compliance with those representations.

By using the JobNet/NACElink system, you release the Career Services Office and the College, our agents and employees, from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect of every kind and nature, known and unknown) arising out of or in any way connected with use of the system.

Policy Changes 
The Career Services Office may modify this privacy policy from time to time. If we make substantial changes, we will post an announcement on this site. You should also check this page from time to time to ensure that you are aware of the most recent version of the policy. Your continued use of the site after our posting of any modifications to the policy will indicate your acceptance of the new or modified terms.
