Center for Career and Professional Development Privacy Policy

Clemson University and the Michelin Career Center are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information.

The Michelin Career Center contracts with Symplicity Corporation to provide Clemson University students with ClemsonJobLink. ClemsonJobLink is an online system that provides job listings, the on-campus recruiting system, and resume services.

Use of Personally Identifiable Candidate Information
by the Michelin Career Center at Clemson University

  • Through ClemsonJobLink, available via the Michelin Career Center website, students and registered alumni can post resumes, view and apply for jobs, and schedule on-campus interviews. The information in a candidate’s profile is used by the Career Center for job-search advising, promoting programs and services, notifying candidates of employment opportunities, and referring qualified candidates to employers.
  • Unless a student opts out in their Security preferences in their ClemsonJobLink profile, student default resumes are included in our Public Resume Books made available to Michelin Career Center approved employers.
  • Resumes are not shared with third parties, such as employment agencies or search firms.
  • Resumes are selected based on objective, legally-permissible requirements.
  • Employers do not have general access to view information or resumes directly from the Michelin Career Center database. ┬áMichelin Career Center approved employers will be granted limited access upon request to public resume books.

The Michelin Career Center may conduct searches on resumes and candidate profiles to notify candidates of educational or employment opportunities through email communications. By entering data into the ClemsonJobLink system, 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.

The Michelin Career Center is continually involved in educational research in the areas of recruitment and employment therefore student data maintained in ClemsonJobLink may be used in support of this research. Your privacy is important to us. In accordance with institutional research guidelines, we maintain strict confidentiality of all student data.

Security

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

The Michelin Career Center does not endorse any employer and urges students to use good judgment in all of their interactions with employers. The Michelin Career Center is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the volume of jobs posted through ClemsonJobLink, The Michelin Career Center is unable to research the integrity of each organization or person that posts a job in ClemsonJobLink. The Michelin Career Center suggests that students request business references for unknown organizations before interviewing with them off campus or exploring job opportunities. Students should never give a potential employer their credit card, social security numbers, or bank account numbers, and never spend any of their own money on an employment “opportunity”. The Michelin Career Center advises students only to agree to interview in public places. For more information about protection during a job search, students may review the section, "Safeguarding Your Job Search" at http://career.clemson.edu/michelin_career_center/career_development_recruiting/job/safeguard.php

Students and alumni should contact The Michelin Career Center 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 ClemsonJobLink account on the Michelin Career Center website.
