Ursinus College privacy policy - career and Professional Development

The Ursinus College Career and Professional Development Office is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information.

The Career and Professional Development Office contracts with NACElink Network to provide Ursinus College students and alumni with job listings and resume services.  Please refer to the NACElink Privacy Statement for technical details and a description of the NACElink.com site.

Use of Personally Identifiable Candidate Information by the Ursinus College Career and Professional Development Office

  • Through NACElink, known as UC CareerNet at Ursinus College, students and registered alumni can post resumes and view and apply for jobs.  The information in a candidate’s profile is used by the Career and Professional Development Office for job-search advising, promoting programs and services, notifying candidates of employment opportunities, and referring qualified candidates to employers. 
  • Only the resumes of students and alumni who have given permission to have their resumes released to employers are shared with prospective employers. 
  • Resumes are selected based on objective, legally-permissible requirements.
  • Employers do not have access to view information or resumes directly from UC CareerNet unless students or alumni apply to a specific position or if the Career and Professional Development Office grants them permission.

The Career and Professional Development Office may conduct searches on resumes and candidate profiles to notify candidates of educational or employment opportunities through email communications.  By entering data into UC CareerNet, students and alumni may have data included in aggregate reports used for evaluation of employment activities, educational programs, reports developed for institutional studies, and salary surveys.

NACElink cannot use or sell individual candidate data. Unlike commercial vendors, NACElink staff cannot look at individual candidate data.

Jobs that are posted in this system are not screened by Ursinus College or by NACE. Job seekers are required to use appropriate caution and use their judgment when applying, interviewing, and accepting positions. If you believe that a job posted at Ursinus is inappropriate or unsafe, inform us immediately via an e-mail to career@ursinus.edu.

The Career and Professional Development website contains links to external websites. Ursinus College is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of those sites not housed on Ursinus servers.

Security

Personally identifiable information is protected both on and offline. The data of students, alumni, and employers are password protected. NACElink has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under NACE’s control.

Students and alumni should contact the Career and Professional Development Office if they have any concerns about the use of their information.  Students and alumni can view, correct or change their information by logging into their account on UC CareerNet.
