Job Board Terms of Use

Failure to follow this code of conduct may result in a student losing use of the Student Employment web site and services.

You must be legally able to work in the United States to use this job board.

We follow up on all job listings and expect that our students will follow the standard rules of job application etiquette when contacting and following up with employers.

Depending on the nature of any breach of our terms of use, the Student Employment Office may terminate your use of Student Employment Services on a temporary or permanent basis. If we are unsure as to the appropriateness of sending you out on jobs as a representative of the Cabrillo College student population, we may require that you see a Cabrillo Counselor for an evaluation prior to releasing employment referrals to you.

Please do not share job listings with others. DO NOT GIVE YOUR USER NAME AND PASSWORD TO ANYONE. They are only for the use of students who are registered with our office. Do not take friends or family members with you to jobs. If an employer wants to hire more than one person, we will refer additional students to them.

Unless a pay rate states that it is negotiable, do not re-negotiate the pay from the rate or ranges posted on these jobs.

Only apply for positions where you meet the requirements and can work the stated hours.

Inappropriate behavior on the job or in the interview process such as yelling, swearing, drinking, drug use, violence, or other socially unacceptable work related behavior is not tolerated.

You can be blocked from job access if we receive complaints from employers regarding your work related behavior.

You can be blocked from job access if your attitude, language or behavior (including the smell of alcohol or marijuana) in our office is inappropriate to the setting or situation.

You can be blocked from job access if you are unable to maintain enrollment in 3 or more units during the semester, or complete 3 or more units of academic coursework successfully (C or better).

You can not continue to use the job board after dropping below three units.  Continuing to use the job bard when you do not meet the requirements to do so may mean that you must successfully complete three units before being reinstated. 

Successive violations may mean permanent blocking from board use.
