The Polar Careers office serves as a referral source for jobs and other opportunities and generally cannot make specific recommendations regarding employers. Polar Careers makes no guarantees about the positions listed in Symplicity. Polar Careers is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the large volume of jobs received by us, we are not able to research the integrity of each and every organization or individual that lists a job with us. Students and alumni are urged to use common sense when applying for any job or internships, particularly if it is a domestic role and employment in a private home, or other opportunities not affiliated with a public or private sector organization.
While the Career Development Center makes every reasonable effort to ensure that employers engaged in campus hiring practices (either online or in person) adhere to certain ethical standards, (NACE Principles for Professional Conduct) be aware that some organizations may participate in illegal recruiting and business practices.
We encourage you to research companies using the resources suggested by the Polar Careers office. Please contact us with questions or if you determine any company listing jobs or internships has misrepresented opportunities.
The Polar Careers office at Ohio Northern University is committed to providing its users sound privacy practices regarding electronic personal information. We operate computer systems that are developed by Polar Careers in partnership with external organizations for our job listings, student/employer database and on-campus recruiting services. Information collected by these systems is used to provide and tailor services to our customers and for program-planning purposes. Information also is used to construct aggregate reports for state agencies and internal institutional studies. Data collection and access to student information is governed by the following campus and federal policies:
- Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
- Privacy Statement for Ohio Northern University Website
Job listings, résumé services and campus recruiting are provided through the NACElink system. Polar Careers partners with the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), a nonprofit professional organization for career centers and employers, and Direct Employers Association, a nonprofit association of national employers, to offer these services. Resumes and profiles of students and alumni participating in any of these services reside on the NACElink servers.
