For students: About the jobs board

The jobs board is offered free of charge to employers and MIT students seeking employment. All hiring and compensation for work performed by students is handled directly between the student and the prospective employer and is undertaken at their own risk.

SFS does not perform background checks on students applying for jobs, nor does it vet or screen employers posting job opportunities. Employers and students are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications/credentials and determine the overall fit between the employer and the student applicant.

All job listings are posted at the discretion of SFS and we reserve the right, but do not assume the obligation, to edit or refuse a job announcement for any reason. We reserve the right not to post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, or national and ethnic origin.

It is our goal to provide accurate posting information on our website; however, we make no representations or guarantees about positions that are posted. SFS is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus employment. Therefore, students and prospective employers are both urged to perform due diligence when offering, applying for, or accepting private off-campus employment. Individuals are advised to use caution and common sense when applying for any position with an organization or private party.

Use of the jobs board is entirely at the risk of the users and MIT expressly disclaims any and all liability with regard to usage of this site or the job board. In addition, SFS is not responsible for the content made available through web links to other websites. The opinions and views associated with any linked third-party websites are not necessarily those of SFS.
