Focus on Jobs Terms & Conditions
FocusOnJobs.com is a service of LAN Connections Information Services, Inc.
Each time you access or use FocusOnJobs (www.focusonjobs.com) online website, including any content, functionality and services offered on or through the website, whether as a guest or as a registered user.
- By using the website, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this agreement.
You must be 18 years of age or older, or the age of majority as that is defined in your jurisdiction, whichever is older, to visit or use FocusOnJobs in any manner.
FocusOnJobs (“FOJ”) is free to individuals searching for employment openings. FOJ may make available job opportunities and other job-related content, including links to third-party websites through FOJ’s search results or elsewhere throughout the site.
Searching for jobs on FOJ is free for all job seekers. Job ads are created and provided by third parties over whom FOJ has no control.
You acknowledge and understand that FOJ has no control over the content of third-party job ads, links to or from job ads, or any conditions third parties might impose once a job seeker has submitted an application or left the site. If you leave FocusOnJobs.com and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party. FOJ has no obligation to screen any job ads, or to include any job ads in its search results or other listings and may exclude or remove any job ads from the site for any or no reason.
FOJ assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any job ads. FOJ, in some circumstances, may be compensated by employers who post job ads, helping keep FOJ free for all job seekers. All job ads are considered advertising.
FOJ displays job ads on a combination of date posted (descending) and relevance, such as search terms. FOJ offers a “Featured” option available to employers at an additional cost.
You are not permitted to use FOJ’s site or its content for commercial purposes.
For purposes of this section of FOJ’s Terms of Service, all references to “you” or “your” shall mean you, the individual or organization accessing this site as a job seeker.
By creating a public resume through the site, you are requesting and authorizing FOJ to make your resume available to third parties, such as employers. By creating or uploading a resume on FOJ, we may share with you job listings that match the contents of your FOJ resume. FOJ assumes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for the resume or application information you post, send or receive through the site.
Applying to Jobs
Once you provide information to an employer (whether in the form of a job application, resume, email, or otherwise), FOJ does not have control over how the employer uses or discloses that information.
If you want the employer to delete, modify, or maintain confidence over any of your information, you must make a request directly to the employer. Employers may request that FOJ assembles your application materials, resume, answers to screener questions, assessment responses and other information you have provided into one document, and you agree that in doing so, FOJ assembles these application materials on your behalf.
When you apply to a job on our site, FOJ will attempt to send your application to the contact information provided to us by the employer. We cannot guarantee that such messages and applications will be delivered, received, accessed, read or acted upon.
In addition, we cannot vouch for the validity of the contact information provided to us by employers. If you do not feel comfortable sending an application or messages in this manner, or having your application or messages stored on FOJ, do not use FocusOnJobs to apply and please send your application or messages directly to the employer by whatever other method you prefer. By applying on our site, you fully consent to the above. By using FocusOnJobs (FOJ), you agree that we are not responsible for the content of the employer’s job application, messages, screener questions, skills assessments or their format or method of delivery.
FOJ does not guarantee the identity of an employer or any individuals working for any employers and cautions job seekers when applying to jobs. FOJ does not guarantee the validity of a job offer and cautions job seekers to verify the validity of all job offers. Job seekers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of any employer or job offer.
You understand and acknowledge that you have no ownership rights in your FocusOnJobs (FOJ) account and that if you cancel your FOJ account, all your account information from FOJ will be marked as deleted in our databases and will be removed from any public area of the FocusOnJobs site.
