Northern Kentucky University Career Services posts job listings for the convenience of students/applicants. The university does not endorse nor recommend employers, and a job 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 without limitation.

It is the responsibility of students/applicants to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment and to thoroughly research the facts and reputation of each organization to which they are applying. Students/applicants should be prudent and use common sense and caution when applying for or accepting any position. This includes reviewing the organization’s website for a career page and being aware of missing/inconsistent, or misspelled information, or requests for personal financial information, or payment to apply, or payment in advance of work. For additional information regarding job search safety, please visit:
