Career Policies

UC Santa Barbara Career Services has created policies for employers utilizing our recruiting services, employers attending our career fairs, and for students utilizing our services. The polices also apply to any employers or students utilizing the Handshake career services platform.  It is imperative that all parties involved in the recruitment process become fully aware and informed of their responsibilities and of the policies that we have set forth. Please contact us at 805-893-4412 if you have any questions.

NOTE: These policies are not all-inclusive; they are intended to serve as a framework within which the career planning, placement, and recruitment processes should function, and as a foundation upon which professionalism can be promoted.

Personal Information
Career Services at the University of California, Santa Barbara is committed to providing good privacy practices regarding electronic personal information. All data collected for our job listing/resume database and on-campus recruiting services are stored on NACElink secure servers. Information collected is used to provide and tailor services to our customers. It is also used to construct aggregate reports that assist us in program planning.

Collection and use of data by Career Services is governed by the following campus and federal policies:

Resumes and profiles of students and alumni participating in our on-line services reside on NACElink servers. There are two resume databases in the NACElink system; a central global resume database and a local resume database. Resumes of students and alumni are automatically placed in the local resume database. Students and alumni have the option of submitting their resumes to the central global resume database. Jobs posted on the NACElink system may or may not be reviewed before posting.

Site users are urged to validate job postings and use caution and common sense when applying. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers to unknown employers. For details on their privacy practices, please review the NACElink Privacy Policy and the Direct Employers Privacy Policy.

Third-party partners are granted access to user information when it is necessary to ensure the proper function of a third-party application. In addition user data is password protected, so only the users (or anyone to whom they provide their passwords) can access this information. All personally identifiable information collected by UCSB Career Services is stored in limited-access servers.
