Workscout, which is free to those individuals searching for employment openings (“Job Seekers”), may make available Job Ads advertising employment opportunities and other job-related content, including links to third-party websites (“Job Listings” or “Job Ads”), through Workscout’s search results or otherwise through the Site. Searching for Job Ads on Workscout is free for Job Seekers. Job Ads are created and provided by third parties over whom Workscout exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that Workscout has no control over the content of 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. For example, some of these third parties may attempt to charge Job Seekers a fee to apply to a particular job, although Workscout endeavors not to make such Job Ads available on the Site. If you leave the Workscout Site and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party. Except for sponsored, featured or paid placements, the Job Ads contained on, or linked from, the Site are indexed or posted in an automated manner. Workscout 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. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Job Ad or other information submitted by any Employer or other user, including the identity of such Employer or other user. Workscout assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Job Ads, Company Pages, screener questions and responses, and assessments. Additionally, Workscout may provide search options to narrow down Job Ads search results by job type categories (i.e. full-time, part-time, etc.), and such categories are created independently and entirely by Workscout, and may not directly or accurately reflect the content of the Job Ads. Workscout may reformat Job Listings so that you may read them more clearly on a mobile phone. While Workscout may in some circumstances be compensated by employers who post Job Ads, helping keep Workscout job search free for Job Seekers, all Job Ads are considered advertising. Workscout displays Job Ads based on a combination of employer bids and relevance, such as search terms and other activity on Workscout. You are not permitted to use Workscout’s Site or its content other than for non-commercial purposes. For purposes of this Section A of the Workscout General Terms of Service, all references to “you” or “your” shall mean you, the individual or organization accessing this Site in your capacity as a Job Seeker.
Resumes and Recommended Jobs
By creating a public resume through the Site, you are requesting and authorizing Workscout to make available your resume to third parties, such as Employers, that Workscout believes may have an interest in your resume. By creating or uploading a resume on Workscout (an “Workscout Resume”), Workscout may share with you Job Listings that match the contents of your Workscout Resume. Workscout assumes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for the resume or application information you post, send or receive through the Site. If you see any inaccuracy in any such material, it is your responsibility to correct such information or to contact Workscout to do so. To protect your privacy, Workscout may mask or hide your contact information, such as your email address, from your resume and may substitute it with an alias.
Workscout may also automatically send you recommended jobs via the email address you use to create an Workscout account or apply to a job. Workscout may determine what these recommended jobs are on the basis of a variety of factors, including but not limited to, any information you input on the Site about yourself (including in your Workscout Resume), searches you run on the Site, jobs you click on, jobs you apply to, or the materials you provide in a job application to an Employer through Workscout.
Applying to Jobs Through Workscout
When you apply to a job using Workscout Apply, Workscout will attempt to send your application to the contact information provided to us by an Employer or their Agent. We cannot guarantee that such messages and applications will be delivered, received, accessed, read or acted upon. Workscout also does not guarantee that any Employer will receive, be notified about, access, read or respond to any such resume or other application material, or that there will be no mistakes in the transmission or storage of the data. However, Workscout may alert you when any of the above events occur. Please note that Job Ads may expire between the time you submit your application and from the time it is received. Workscout has no responsibility for expired Job Ads or for delivering applications prior to a Job Ad’s expiration. In addition, we cannot vouch for the validity of the contact information provided to us by Employers. We also cannot vouch for the technical capabilities of any third party sites, including but not limited to Applicant Tracking Systems (ATSs). If you do not feel comfortable sending an application or messages in this manner, or having your application or messages stored on Workscout, do not use the Workscout Apply or Workscout relay functions and please send your application or messages directly to the Employer by whatever another method you so choose, including the public mail system. You may contact the Employer directly to find alternative methods of application if you do not wish to apply through Workscout. By using the Workscout Apply system, you fully consent to the above.
If you require alternative methods of screening or application you must approach the Employer directly to request such as Workscout is not responsible for the Employer application process.
By using Workscout, you agree that Workscout is not responsible for the content of the Employer’s job application, messages, screener questions, skills assessments or their format or method of delivery, and that Workscout does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Employer, or your receipt of messages from the Employer. Please note that Workscout does not choose the questions asked by Employers or decide the job qualification criteria of Employers. Some questions may be labeled as Optional, indicating only that the application may be submitted to the Employer without providing an answer. Workscout cannot guarantee that the Employer will consider such an application or make a particular determination with regard to such an application. Workscout may inform Job Seekers that an Employer’s requirement from a job description does not appear to be present on a resume; this information is presented without warranty and Workscout does not guarantee that updating a resume will result in any job offer. Workscout does not guarantee the identity of an Employer or any individuals working for any Employers, and cautions Job Seekers when applying to jobs. Workscout cannot make any guarantee regarding health and safety measures in an Employer’s hiring or interviewing process. Workscout recommends Job Seekers follow personal health and safety best practices as recommended by the World Health Organization or similar institution. Workscout does not guarantee the validity of a job offer and cautions Job Seekers to verify the validity of a job offer before taking an adverse action regarding their current employment situations. Job Seekers are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of any Employer or job offer.
Workscout may use your application materials (including resumes and responses to screener questions) and the recency of your activity on Workscout to determine whether the words of any Job Seeker’s resume and answers to screener questions match the words of a Job Listing or Resume query, and vice-versa. You agree and consent that Workscout may differentiate those matching resumes and screener questions from those that do not match, and present them to Employers as matches or not matches. Workscout may also use such information in order to improve the Site or any other Workscout product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant Job Listings and resumes to Job Seekers and Employers). By using Workscout Apply and answering screener questions, you acknowledge that Employers may have instructed Workscout to send out rejection notices if your answers do not match the answers sought by the Employer, and you acknowledge that Workscout has no discretion in the transmission of these rejections. Workscout may offer Employers the ability to activate a feature on their account called Employer Assist. Activating Employer Assist means the Employer is instructing Workscout to send a message on the Employer’s behalf to the Job Seeker informing them that the Employer has determined not to move forward with their application. These notices are automatically sent after a period of time selected by the Employer unless the Employer indicates to Workscout their interest in your application. You acknowledge and agree that Workscout has no discretion in the sending of these messages and that any such messages are solely a result of the Employer’s decision to activate Employer Assist and to not take an action on your application on Workscout within the time period selected by the Employer. Any interactions the Employer has directly with you and not through a tool provided by Workscout (for example, calling or emailing you directly instead of through a Workscout Relay Service) are not visible to Workscout, and would not by themselves prevent an Employer Assist rejection notice from being sent.
