Job Opportunities Benefiting Students (JOBS)

Posting Policy Standards

Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) is committed to non-discriminatory practices and it is the policy of SCSU to afford equal opportunity to all employees and/or applicants without judgment on the basis of race, color, religious creed, age, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, ancestry, disability including learning disability, past or present history of a mental disorder, or genetic background or other protected status, unless there is a bona fide occupational requirement which excludes persons in one of the above protected groups. 

We welcome the participation of employers with regard to the utilization of JOBSs - Job Opportunities Benefiting Southern students - and request that each participating employer be in agreement with Southern Connecticut State University's  commitment to non-discriminatory practices. The Center for Career Services will ascertain the appropriateness  of all full-time, part-time, and co-op/internship position announcements submitted for Southern students and alumni. Employers will be informed in a timely manner if a request, which must provide accurate information, has been approved for posting.

The Center for Career Services at Southern Connecticut State University reserves the right to determine if a third party request will be granted, and will only consider one for review if the establishment identifies the employer they represent to the Career Center for internal purposes. Third party postings include positions from the following categories (but are not limited to): Employment Agencies, Search Firms, Contract Recruiters and Resume Referral Firms. Employers must explicitly agree not to share or sell student and/or alumni information. If applicable, any fee payment must be clearly stated, although the Center frowns upon this practice with regard to Southern students who predominately are new to the post-graduation job search process. We recognize that  third party establishments could expand  job search opportunities for Southern students as they embark upon their desired careers. In addition (but not limited to) posting opportunities to our system do not include childcare, yard work, snow removal, etc.

With a strong commitment to all of the University's Core Values and in particular "Student Success and Community Involvement" we trust that your participation with JOBS, a stream lined approach for recruitment purposes, will benefit  you as an employer as well as  our students. The Center for Career Services has at the forefront of its recruitment standards the Principles for Professional Conduct for Career Services & Employment Professionals as outlined by the National Association for Colleges & Employers (NACE). We welcome an ongoing partnership and thank you for recruiting our students for your specific employment needs.
