In order to provide fair and equitable services to our students and employers, the Southeast Missouri State University Office of Career Services and its clients adhere to the following policies:
Employers must subscribe to:
We do not knowingly furnish assistance and facilities for interviewing or other career services functions to employers who discriminate in their selection of employees on the basis of sex, age, disability, race, color, religion, marital status, veteran’s status, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.
We reserve the right to refuse service to employers for factors such as the following:
Job seekers are advised to exercise due diligence and use common sense and caution when applying for or accepting any position. Students and alumni are encouraged to take responsibility for all necessary precautions when interviewing for, or accepting these positions. For their privacy and protection when applying to a job online, students are advised to NOT provide social security numbers to a prospective employer, provide credit card or bank account information, or perform any sort of monetary transaction.
Career Services Access
The Office of Career Services has the ability to conduct searches on resumes and candidate profiles to notify candidates of educational or employment opportunities through email communications. By entering data into the REDConnect system, students and alumni may have data included in aggregate reports used for evaluation of employment activities, educational programs, reports developed for institutional studies, and salary surveys.
The Office of Career Services recognizes your right to privacy. We use security precautions to make sure that any information about your company is only provided to students and alumni of Southeast Missouri State University. Your private information (which may include your name, address, e-mail address, and other information) is not shared with any individuals or organizations outside of Career Services unless you have authorized us to do so.
The Office of Career Services office contracts with EXPERIENCE to provide REDConnect. REDConnect is a career services software system for students and alumni of Southeast Missouri State University and employers seeking Southeast candidates for employment. Students and alumni can view, correct or change their information by logging into their REDConnect account. Students and registered alumni can post resumes, view and apply for jobs, and schedule on-campus interviews. Employers can view, correct or change their information by logging into their REDConnect account. Registered employers can post positions, view approved resume books, and schedule on-campus interviews.
Employers & Job Postings
Southeast Missouri State University Career Services does not endorse any employer, makes no guarantee about positions listed, and urges students to use good judgment in all of their interactions with employers. Career Services is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of employment. Career Services staff will verify that only legitimate employers are given access to provide a company profile which will enable them to post vacancies, access resumes and schedule interviews with student and alumni subscribers. Students and alumni using REDConnect are expected to use good judgment in sharing personal information with potential employers.
As a user of REDConnect, students and alumni have the option of inclusion in resume books. By participating in resume books, students and alumni consent to the release of their resume and certain employment related information. Resumes are not shared with third parties, such as employment agencies or search firms. Only the resumes of students who have given permission to have their resume included in Resume Books are shared with you as employers. Students have the option to opt in or out of having their resume included in Resume Books.
The Office of Career Services is committed to complying with the ethical standards of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), and expects students and be honest and professional in the internship and job search process. We believe it is important for employers to be fully aware of the expectations we have of our student-users.

Students are encouraged to notify the Office of Career Services if they perceive any violations of ethical conduct on the part of employers. Employers are encouraged to notify the Office of Career Services if they perceive any inappropriate or concerning conduct or behavior being demonstrated during interactions with students or alumni.
