Student Privacy Policy

The Mississippi College Office of Career Services is committed to providing its students and alumni good privacy practices regarding electronic personal information. All data collected for resume and on-campus recruiting services are stored using secure servers on our online system, NACElink, also known as MC CareerLink. Collection and use of student and alumni data is governed by the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). All of our users’ information is considered confidential and its use is restricted to MC Career Services staff. MC Career Services does not share uploaded documents with employers unless the student agrees to “Include in Resume Books” in Privacy Settings.

Students and alumni are urged to use caution and common sense when applying. Do not disclose social security numbers, credit card information or bank account numbers to employers. Career Services does our best to protect students from job scams. However, it is important to have a basic knowledge of what to look out for when job searching. Check out our quick guide to spotting a job scam. When in doubt about an employer’s practices, please contact the MC Office of Career Services. While using MC CareerLink, you may encounter links to web pages of organizations not directly affiliated with either the Office of Career Services or Mississippi College. The Office of Career Services does not control the content or information practices of these external organizations.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact Career Services at (601) 925-3901.
