Office of Academic Advising & Career Services

NACElink (known as USF NACElink at University of St. Francis)

The Office of Academic Advising & Career Services offers access to the NACElink Network web site (known as USF NACElink), which is owned and operated by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The Office of Academic Advising and NACE are committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information provided by students, alumnae, and employers as users.

Employers use NACElink Network to post internship & employment opportunities and search the central resume database directly on NACElink.com, through the University of St. Francis’s Career Services website or NACE’S website (NACEWeb), where there is a direct link to NACElink Network. USF is a NACElink Custom School and uses NACElink Network to provide a web-based system for posting jobs, maintaining a résumé database, registering its job seekers and for the employers who recruit at USF. Students/alumnae use NACElink Network to post resumes and review job opportunities.

NACE’s commitment to all participants – schools, employers, students/alumnae – is to maintain the confidentiality of all information collected on NACElink Network and NACE will not sell, transmit, or disclose, in any fashion, this information to any other organization. NACElink Network is the host server, storing and maintaining the data. NACE also has a partner, Symplicity, which will provide backup hosting services to NACE’s servers and is as committed to privacy as NACE. NACE and Symplicity have access to the data in aggregate form.

Students and Alumnae

Personally identifiable information that is collected will be used to enable registered employers to access and use the various features of the NACElink Network system, such as posting jobs, scheduling interviews, and using resume search engines. Students/alumnae will be able to access the various features of the NACElink Network system, i.e. job posting, résumé databases, and job-search agents. Communications with employers will be enhanced regarding use of NACElink Network, site changes, or information on possible events/activities associated with recruiting.

NACE receives and collects personal identifiable information about a student/alumnae participant, (name, contact information, demographic information, academic history, employment history, etc.) via NACElink Network after the participant registers for services and uploads resumes, cover letters and other documents containing personal information.

The Office of Academic Advising & Career Services may access some of the job seeker’s personal information in order to send email using communication tools on the site, to publish resumes in the school’s resume books, and to send resumes to registered employers on behalf of the students/alumni.

Employers

Employers that use NACElink Network directly through NACElink or through the Office of Academic Advising & Career Services will have access to participant’s resumes and the personal information contained therein for recruiting, interviewing, and hiring purposes. Employers will also have access to limited information from participant’s profiles only if the profile matches an employer’s search criteria. NACE and USF are not responsible for what employers do with the personal information that is available or accessible on this site.

While NACE endeavors to restrict access to this database to eligible employers, NACE cannot guarantee that other parties will not, without consent, gain access to the database. USF and NACE will collect information from employers utilizing the site, such as contact information (phone numbers or email addresses), unique identifiers (NACE membership, account numbers, or passwords to NACElink Network), and demographic information (location, type of organization, size of organization).

Security

NACE takes precautions to protect the participant’s information. When participants submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line. In addition, the job seeker and employer data is password protected, so only the participant can access this information. All personally identifiable information collected by NACE is stored in limited-access servers. NACElink Network uses firewalls and has technical, administrative, and physical security measures and safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under NACE’s control.

Disclaimer

NACE and NACElink Network are not affiliated with USF and therefore, USF cannot guarantee, nor does it otherwise accept responsibility for, any portion of this Statement that depends on NACE’s representations and its compliance with those representations
