The Concordia University, St. Paul Office of Career Development (CSP CD) is committed to providing exceptional services for students and alumni. Our commitment includes respecting your right to privacy. We also want you to understand your obligations in using our services. This policy statement has been developed to let you know about the uses of your personal information, who has access to your data, the information security measures of our online system and our principles of conduct for the use of Handshake.
CSP CD makes no representations or guarantees about positions and/or employers posted through Handshake. Students are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers and job postings when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment. We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus or on-campus employment.
Resumes: Employers may view resumes of qualified candidates. By selecting the “Make Profile Public” option within Handshake, you are permitting interested employers to access your resume (with your contact information if you include it in the document).
Job Postings: Jobs posted within the Handshake platform may or may not be reviewed by CSP CD staff before posting. Individuals are urged to validate job postings and use caution and common sense when applying online. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers.
Internet Scams: Payment-forwarding scams contain certain “red-flags” that should alert you to fraudulent job ads. CSP CD does its best to screen posted positions, but may at times be unable to determine fraudulent postings. Be cautious and aware by understanding some of the known red flags:
• Request for bank account numbers or check deposits.
• Request for Social Security number (SSN) unless you are certain it is for a legitimate reason.
• Request to “scan the ID” of a job seeker, for example, a drivers’ license. Scam artists will say they need to scan job seekers’ IDs to “verify identity.” This is not a legitimate request.
• A contact e-mail address that is not a primary domain. For example, an employer calling itself “Omega Inc.” with a Yahoo! e-mail address.
• Misspellings and/or grammatical errors in the job posting.
• Descriptive words in job postings that are tip-offs for fraudulent behavior include: “package-forwarding”, “money transfers”, “wiring funds”, “eBay”, and “PayPal”.
If an employer asks you for any of this information, or if you suspect an employer of running a scam, contact CSP CD at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 603-6245 immediately and provide the employer’s name and job title of the posting in Handshake. Individual Conduct All students and alumni using Handshake are expected to conduct themselves in a professional and ethical manner throughout their job search process. This includes providing truthful and accurate information in your account. Misconduct or misuse of your account may result in suspension of Handshake privileges.
