Career Development Center Disclaimer

The Career Development Center (CDC) serves as a referral source for jobs and other opportunities and generally cannot make specific recommendations regarding off- campus employers. The Center makes no guarantees about the positions listed by the Center. The CDC is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or any other aspects of off-campus employment. While we expect employers to adhere to ethical standards, we are not able to research the integrity of each organization or individual that lists a job with us. Students and alumni are urged to ask good questions and use common sense when applying for any job or internships, particularly with respect to employment in a private home or other opportunities not affiliated with an established public or private sector organization. We encourage you to research prospective employers using resources made available by the Career Center, as well as other tools, such as the internet.

The CDC provides opportunities for University of Arkansas students and alumni to develop job-search skills and provides resources to help identify potential employment. The CDC does not guarantee job placement for students nor for alumni.

Please contact the Career Center with questions or if you believe any employer listing jobs or internships with the CDC has misrepresented opportunities or has otherwise engaged in unethical conduct concerning recruitment or employment practices.
