Career Center Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

Policy Overview

The Career Center at Kansas State University is committed to providing exceptional services for K-State students, alumni and employers. Our commitment includes respecting your right to privacy. We also want you to understand your obligations in using our services. This policy statement has been developed to let you know about the uses of your personal information, who has access to your data, the information security measures of our online system and our principles of conduct for the use of Career Center services.

Privacy Issues

Via our Web site at www.k-state.edu/careercenter, students and alumni have the option to create a Career Center Account for job/internship searching. Employers create a Career Center account to search for potential applicants, post jobs, register for career fairs and manage on-campus interviews. The web-based system for managing your Career Center account uses SSL encryption across the entire system for secure data transmission. The off-campus data center is well protected and fire-walled for added security. Students' personal information (which may include your name, address, e-mail address and other resume information) stored in the system is not shared with any individuals or organizations outside of the Career Center unless you have authorized us to do so as dictated by FERPA guidelines. Authorization is requested before your Career Center account is activated and made available to employing organizations. For university reporting purposes, some post-graduation data is shared with academic and administrative units of Kansas State University.

Jobs posted in the system may or may not be reviewed by Career Center staff before posting. Individuals are urged to validate job postings and use caution and common sense when applying online. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers to unknown individuals.

Individual Conduct

All student, alumni and employer clients using Career Center services are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner throughout their job/candidate search process. This includes providing truthful and accurate information in your Career Center account. Students who provide false information to any university official or office are in violation of the Student Code of Conduct at Kansas State University. Misconduct or misuse of your Career Center account may result in the filing of a student conduct complaint and/or discontinuation of access to Career Center services.

As a NACE member, the Career Center supports and affirms the association's Principles of Conduct for Career Services ProfessionalsEmployment Professionals and Third-Party Recruiters.
