The Florida State University (FSU) Career Center strives for open access and connections between students and employers. The FSU Career Center abides by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Ethical Professional Practice.
Job/internship listings, on-campus interviewing, career fair registrations and partner program registrations are provided through NoleNetwork, The Career Center's Career Services Management System (CSM). The FSU Career Center’s job posting database is provided free of charge to employers and to job seekers. All hiring and compensation for work performed by employees is handled directly between the student/alumni job seeker and the employer. The FSU Career Center makes no representations or guarantees about quality of student/alumni applicants or employers, as we do not perform background checks. Employers and students/alumni are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials and overall fit between the employer and the applicant. The FSU Career Center makes no representations or guarantees about positions posted in NoleNetwork, positions posted on external websites linked from the Career Center website (/Resources/Career-Center-Library), or positions highlighted via Career Center social media accounts. Job seekers are urged to carefully review job postings and use caution and common sense when applying. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information, or bank account numbers to unknown employers.
All job opportunities are posted at the discretion of the FSU Career Center. The FSU Career Center may deny and/or remove access rights for organizations that do not support the policies and procedures of NACE, Florida State University or that violate state and/or federal law.

The FSU Career Center is committed to providing privacy of personal information for our clients, to the fullest extent permitted by law. Although the FSU Career Center maintains ownership of all student and alumni profile data and résumés in NoleNetwork, résumés and profiles of students and alumni participating in any of these services reside on the NoleNetwork (Symplicity) servers. Employers may also request résumés through our NoleNetwork (screened by major, overall GPA, graduation date, work authorization, etc.).
The Career Center will not disclose a client’s protected information to third parties or government agencies, without consent, unless required by law. Client and employer information from NoleNetwork may be used to construct aggregate reports that assist the FSU Career Center in program planning for statistical reports or to inform clients of services and programs of interest. This information may also be used to troubleshoot problems and is accessible only to FSU Career Center staff. Information routinely shared with parties outside of the FSU Career Center is shared only in aggregate form.
The Florida State University Career Center staff have access to view mentoring conversations. Any information contained in the mentoring database, including mentoring conversations, are considered educational records of the student and protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The advice, information and opinions expressed by the mentors are theirs alone, and do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions or positions of the Florida State University Board of Trustees, the Florida State University, the Florida State University Career Center, or any employee thereof.

By registering with NoleNetwork, students and alumni who use the system are agreeing to allow the personal and professional information they provide (e.g. name, address, telephone number, email address, degree(s), etc.), to be accessed by the FSU Career Center.
Students and alumni using NoleNetwork consent that information found in their account profiles, résumés, cover letters and other relevant documents is truthful and accurately represents both their education and experience. Students making false statements regarding their education and/or experience can be subject to discipline under the Florida State University Student Conduct Code. The FSU Career Center may deny and/or remove access rights for students and alumni that do not support the policies and procedures of the University.
The FSU Career Center makes no recommendation regarding employers, and makes every effort to approve legitimate job opportunities. While the Career Center works diligently to monitor jobs, occasionally postings may occur that are fraudulent.
Here are some good tips to identify a job that is probably a scam:
- You must give your credit card or bank account numbers, or copies of personal documents - but you get nothing in writing.
- You must send payment by wire service or courier.
- You are offered a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account - often for depositing checks or transferring money.
- You receive an unexpectedly large check.
If you view a job posting that matches these characteristics please contact the Career Center at 850.644.4023 or email@example.com
