Regarding off-campus jobs posted using SEAN (online job search service)
Since off-campus non-work study employment opportunities are not under the jurisdiction of UCCS, the University assumes no obligation for verification of job standards, continued employment or affirmative action procedures.
Students should be aware of potential job posting scams. Any off-campus position is outside of UCCS jurisdiction and as such the University assumes no liability or obligation in verifying validity of postings. Please use extreme caution in applying for off campus positions. Students should NEVER pay for employment opportunities. If any employer asks for money, wishes to engage in wire transfers, or discusses advance payment for work that has not been performed, please discontinue all correspondence with that employer and contact Detective Martin Toetz with UCCS Public Safety immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Student Employment at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs acts only as a referral service. We make no recommendations or guarantees about the positions and employers listed through our office. Due to the volume of jobs received by Student Employment, we are unable to research the integrity of every position listed. Therefore, students are urged to take on this responsibility themselves. We encourage you to use common sense and caution when applying for positions, especially when applying for positions off-campus. If a potential employer asks you to participate in an activity that makes you uncomfortable in any way, don't do it. You may also wish to check with other services that rate business, for example the local Better Business Bureau.
The Office of Student Employment and SEAN do not at any time send your information to potential employers. You must actively apply for positions in order to be considered. Should you receive an email regarding a position you did not actively apply for, use extreme caution and do not apply for the position or send any personal information. Follow the guidelines below when dealing with potential scams:
