Fraudulent Employer & Job Posting Warning and Disclaimer

The Notre Dame of Maryland University Career Center posts job listings for the convenience of students. The university does not endorse or recommend employers, and a posting does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation. The university explicitly makes no representations or guarantees about job listings or the accuracy of the information provided by the employer. The university is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or any other aspect of off-campus employment or pre-employment screening without limitation. It is the responsibility of students to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment or pre-screening appointments and to thoroughly research the facts and reputation of each organization to which they are applying. Students should be prudent and use common sense and caution when applying for or accepting any position, and they should review the cautionary information we have included below in order to be better informed of potential fraudulent or improper practices in order to protect themselves from harm. 

All job listings are posted at the discretion of the NDMU Career Center. We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, disabled or Vietnam Era veteran status, sexual orientation, disability or gender. The NDMU Career Center also reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the university.

The NDMU Career Center offers Handshake, a career services online platform, as a resource for employers to connect with NDMU students and alumni seeking career-related opportunities including internships, co-ops, and part and full-time jobs. NDMU is not responsible for the content of any information provided by any person or organization on the Handshake website, nor is NDMU responsible for the conduct of any such person or organization. Because we endeavor to keep fraudulent and scam postings off Handshake, our Career Center team attempts to validate the requestor seeking to make an employer account and/or position available to our students and alumni. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of employers seeking access to Handshake and postings, it is impossible to ensure that every employer is legitimate. If you suspect any fraudulent or other inappropriate actions involving Handshake, please immediately report it to NDMU Career Center  via phone at 410.532.5387 or via email at

Furthermore, It is not uncommon in this digital age for your personal contact information to be found elsewhere on a legitimate website outside of NDMU or Handshake. As a result, it is possible that you could receive an unsolicited email, text message or phone call from a fraudulent contact regarding an alleged employment or other opportunity.  You should be vigilant in researching any unsolicited contacts. Review the following tips on how to vet potentially fraudulent employers and job postings.

We encourage both students and employers to provide feedback to our office regarding their experience through the use of our service. For additional information regarding our services, contact NDMU Career Center via phone at 410.532.5387 or via email at

We reserve the right to update this warning and disclaimer notice regarding the use of these services.  We will include a statement on our website in the event we materially modify the notice.
