Terms and Conditions
The NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development (the Wasserman Center) acts only as an intermediary between employers posting job opportunities and candidates searching for job opportunities. The Wasserman Center is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, the Wasserman Center has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the jobs or resumes posted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of employers to offer job opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings.
For government guidelines and standards on internships/trainee programs, please see the Fair Labor Standards Act Advisor. In addition, because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, the Wasserman Center cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot control the behavior of participants on our web site, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release the Wasserman Center and New York University (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect of every kind and nature, known and unknown), arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a student, by submitting your resume to any service including Handshake, or the On-Campus Recruiting program you are authorizing the Wasserman Center to forward your resume to selected employer partners.
