AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire’s search results or otherwise through the Site. Searching for Job Ads on AcademiaHire is free for Job Seekers. Job Ads are created and provided by third parties over whom AcademiaHire exercises no control; you acknowledge and understand that AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire endeavors not to make such Job Ads available on the Site. If you leave the AcademiaHire Site and choose to enter a third-party website, you accept any terms and conditions imposed by that third-party. Employer websites may have conversion trackers or use APIS and other functionality provided by AcademiaHire, which informs us that an application has been completed on an Employer site. An Employer who installs such functionality is required under this Agreement to provide any notice, and obtain any prior consent, that may be required by applicable law. However, you acknowledge and agree that AcademiaHire has no control over such an Employer or its website. You agree to AcademiaHire’s use of, and receipt of information from, any such conversion tracker functionality. 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. AcademiaHire 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 or your search result for any or no reason. You understand and agree that AcademiaHire has no obligation to present you with any or all Job Ads. 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. AcademiaHire 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, AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire, and may not directly or accurately reflect the content of the Job Ads. AcademiaHire may reformat Job Listings so that you may read them more clearly on a mobile phone. Placement of a Job Ad on a certain page (for example, on AcademiaHire Gigs) is not a representation regarding the nature of the role for legal purposes. While AcademiaHire may in some circumstances be compensated by employers who post Job Ads, helping keep AcademiaHire job search free for Job Seekers, all Job Ads are considered advertising. AcademiaHire displays Job Ads based on a combination of employer bids and relevance, such as search terms, and other information provided and activities conducted on AcademiaHire. You are not permitted to use AcademiaHire’s Site or its content other than for non-commercial purposes. For purposes of this Section A of the AcademiaHire 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. AcademiaHire may provide functionality to call a telephone number contained in a Job Ad using the phone app on a mobile device. AcademiaHire cannot guarantee that the extracted phone number is the correct phone number for the Employer or for the Job Ad you are viewing.
By creating a public resume through the Site (“AcademiaHire Resume”) or uploading a file resume on the Site (collectively, “Your Resume” or “Job Seeker Resume”), you are requesting and authorizing AcademiaHire to make available Your Resume to third parties, such as Employers, that AcademiaHire believes may have an interest in Your Resume. If you do not want AcademiaHire to make available Your Resume to third parties or if you do not want Employers to contact you, set your AcademiaHire Resume and uploaded file resume to private. Setting Your Resume to private will not affect your previous applications or prevent employers you responded to from contacting you.
By creating an AcademiaHire Resume or uploading a file resume on AcademiaHire, AcademiaHire may share with you Job Ads that match the contents of Your Resume. AcademiaHire may also highlight to you items in Your Resume that may match qualifications from the Job Ad, or highlight to you items that appear in the Job Ad and may be missing from Your Resume. These highlights do not mean you are or are not qualified for the job or that you should or should not apply for it. Applying for such Job Ads does not guarantee job interviews or hiring. Even where AcademiaHire highlights items or a Job Ad is shared with you, AcademiaHire assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of Job Ads or highlights. By creating or uploading Your Resume, you are requesting and authorizing AcademiaHire, or an AcademiaHire vendor, to review or scan Your Resume and provide you feedback (in AcademiaHire’s discretion), including suggested changes. AcademiaHire assumes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for any changes you make based on any provided feedback. AcademiaHire assumes no responsibility and disclaims all liability for the resume or application information you post, send or receive through the Site. By uploading a file resume on the Site, you agree that AcademiaHire may convert your file resume to a different file type. It is your responsibility to review Your Resume to ensure that the content appears as you intend, and that it contains the right information or any information you intend to include or update. If you see any inaccuracy in any such material, it is your responsibility to correct such information or to contact AcademiaHire to do so. It may take a few days for updates to your account or resume to be reflected. To mitigate fraud, AcademiaHire may mask or hide your contact information, for example, we may mask or hide your email address and/or phone number, from Your Resume or application and may substitute it with an alias. AcademiaHire makes no promise to you about whether all or part of your contact info will be masked or hidden, and the decision to mask or hide such info is in AcademiaHire’s sole discretion. AcademiaHire reserves the right to limit your ability to set Your Resume to public, and may toggle a public resume to private, at any time, to prevent illegal conduct, for fraud mitigation, or for any other reason in AcademiaHire’s discretion.
If you have an AcademiaHire account, an AcademiaHire Resume, or an uploaded file resume, you agree that AcademiaHire may associate Your Resume data with your profile on AcademiaHire (“AcademiaHire Profile”). Your AcademiaHire Profile consists of information you provide on the Site in the “Profile” section of your account. This includes your AcademiaHire Resume, your scores on any AcademiaHire Assessments you may have taken and any information in the “About me” section, such as your desired job title, job types, work schedule, whether you are ready to work, or pay. Information in your AcademiaHire Profile, except as otherwise indicated on the Site, may be available to third parties, such as Employers. If you do not want AcademiaHire to make your AcademiaHire Profile available to third parties or if you do not want Employers to contact you, set your AcademiaHire Resume and uploaded file resume to private or remove Your Resume. Your response to an AcademiaHire Assessment will be associated with your AcademiaHire Profile. You may choose whether your AcademiaHire Assessment response is available to Employers viewing your AcademiaHire Profile. You can enable the ready to work feature on your profile to let Employers know that you can start work immediately. After 60 days, we will automatically remove that feature from your profile, but you can manually enable it again.
AcademiaHire may also automatically send you recommended jobs via the email address you use to create an AcademiaHire account or apply to a job. AcademiaHire 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 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 AcademiaHire.
By using AcademiaHire, you agree that AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire does not guarantee receipt of your application by the Employer, or your receipt of messages from the Employer. Please note that AcademiaHire 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. AcademiaHire cannot guarantee that the Employer will consider such an application or make a particular determination with regard to such an application. AcademiaHire may inform Job Seekers that an Employer’s requirement from a job description does not appear to be present on a resume or application; this information is presented without warranty and AcademiaHire does not guarantee that updating a resume or application will result in any job offer. AcademiaHire does not guarantee the identity of an Employer or any individuals working for any Employers, and cautions Job Seekers when applying to jobs. AcademiaHire cannot make any guarantee regarding health and safety measures in an Employer’s hiring or interviewing process. AcademiaHire recommends Job Seekers follow personal health and safety best practices as recommended by the World Health Organization or similar institution. AcademiaHire 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.
AcademiaHire may send you a notice relating to account security, such as informing you that you may have recently interacted with a compromised account. AcademiaHire cannot and does not guarantee that such notices will always be sent or received, and you therefore agree that AcademiaHire bears no responsibility for doing so. AcademiaHire makes no warranty regarding, and disclaims any liability for, the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or reliability of such notices.
AcademiaHire may use your application materials (including resumes and responses to screener questions) and the recency of your activity on AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire may differentiate those matching resumes and screener questions from those that do not match, and present them to Employers as matches or not matches. AcademiaHire may also use such information in order to improve the Site or any other AcademiaHire product or service (including by displaying or otherwise making available potentially relevant Job Listings and resumes to Job Seekers and Employers). AcademiaHire may also highlight to you items in your prior application materials (including items in your resume and past responses to screener questions) that may match qualifications from the Job Listing, or highlight to you items that appear in the Job Listing that may not match your application materials. These highlights do not mean you are or are not qualified for the job or that you should or should not apply for it. Applying for such Job Listings does not guarantee job interviews or hiring. Even where AcademiaHire highlights items or a Job Listing is shared with you, AcademiaHire assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of Job Listings or highlights.
By using AcademiaHire Apply and answering screener questions, you acknowledge that Employers may have instructed AcademiaHire to send out rejection notices if your answers do not match the answers sought by the Employer, and you acknowledge that AcademiaHire has no discretion in the transmission of these rejections. AcademiaHire may offer Employers the ability to activate a feature on their account called Employer Assist. Activating Employer Assist means the Employer is instructing AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire their interest in your application. You acknowledge and agree that AcademiaHire 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 AcademiaHire within the time period selected by the Employer. Any interactions the Employer has directly with you and not through a tool provided by AcademiaHire (for example, calling or emailing you directly instead of through an AcademiaHire Relay Service) are not visible to AcademiaHire, and would not by themselves prevent an Employer Assist rejection notice from being sent.
When you search for jobs on the AcademiaHire Job Search app and proceed to apply for a job, including jobs on third party sites, AcademiaHire may suggest information from your AcademiaHire profile to include in your application. It is your responsibility to review suggestions before accepting them and including them on your application.

AcademiaHire Assessments is an online tool for the provision and review of skills assessments selected by Employers (“Assessments”) and responses from Job Seekers (“Responses”) through the Site. Employers may use the AcademiaHire Assessments tool to send you Assessments, to which you may provide Responses. After you provide a Response, the Employer will be able to use the AcademiaHire Assessments platform to review the Response. If there are multiple versions of the same Assessment, the Response percentile for any Job Seeker will be determined only in relation to other Responses to the same version of that Assessment.
An Assessment only evaluates a particular skill. It does not evaluate a Job Seeker’s qualification for any job. Whether a particular skill is relevant to a job, or whether a Job Seeker is qualified or appropriate for a job, is decided solely by the Employer sending the Assessment and reviewing your Response. Receiving or responding to an Assessment does not guarantee a job or job offer, or a job offer at any particular salary, or any further communication or action by any Employer. An Employer is the sole party to determine whether a Response indicates a qualified Job Seeker. Employers may have instructed AcademiaHire to send out rejection notices if you have not responded to Assessments in a manner acceptable to the Employer, and you acknowledge that AcademiaHire has no discretion in the transmission of these rejections. The Employer is the sole party to determine whether to consider any retaken Assessments as part of their hiring process.
You acknowledge and understand that Employers (or their employment agencies) select which Assessments to associate with their job openings, and that AcademiaHire does not choose the Assessments sent by Employers and has no control over Employers’ selection or use of Assessments. You agree that the questions in any Assessment are solely being asked by the Employer sending the Assessment. You further agree that AcademiaHire is not responsible for offering alternative methods of screening, if so required by the Americans with Disabilities Act or any other equivalent or similar law, and that the responsibility for offering any such alternative method lies solely with Employers. If you require an accommodation, or any alternative method(s) of Assessment, screening or application, you must indicate it to the Employer. AcademiaHire may provide a means by which you may request such an alternative method or other accommodation from the Employer; AcademiaHire does not guarantee the Employer’s receipt of, or response to, any such request. While AcademiaHire is guided by WCAG 2.1, Level AA in our efforts to design and develop accessible offerings, as outlined in the accessibility statement, AcademiaHire does not warrant that the method of delivery of any Assessment question is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act or any equivalent or similar law. You agree and acknowledge that the usefulness and value of Assessments and Responses depend on their contents being kept confidential. You therefore agree to keep the content of Assessments and Responses confidential and to not reproduce or discuss them with anyone, except that you may communicate with an Employer about an Assessment they have sent to you and your Response.
AcademiaHire does not have any obligation to screen any Assessment or Response, or to include any Assessment or Response in the Site, and may exclude or remove any Assessment or Response from the Site for any or no reason without liability or notice. Assessment links sent to you may continue to be active after an Employer has paused or closed their job campaign on AcademiaHire. Once an Employer pauses or closes their Job Ad (for example, after the Employer has made a hire), AcademiaHire cannot guarantee that the Employer will view any related notices or updates, including Assessments, Responses, and accommodation requests. You may still choose to take the Assessment for the purpose of adding its results to your AcademiaHire Profile or for another job application. AcademiaHire may also offer you the option to select an Assessment to complete independent of a particular job, and your Response will be associated with your AcademiaHire Profile. You may choose whether the Response is available to Employers viewing your AcademiaHire Profile, though AcademiaHire will count the Response for purposes of generating aggregate Response statistics even if Your Response is hidden.
You are requesting and authorizing AcademiaHire to make your Response available to the Employer providing the Assessment, or (in the case of Assessments selected by you) to any Employer viewing Your AcademiaHire Profile. You understand that this is without warranty, and that AcademiaHire reserves the right to display or reformat Responses in a manner to permit Employers to review your Response together with Responses from other Job Seekers. AcademiaHire may aggregate the results of all Job Seeker-selected Assessments for the purpose of displaying the percentile for Your Response. You also acknowledge that once you have requested that AcademiaHire transmit your Response to an Employer, that request cannot be canceled. AcademiaHire does not guarantee that any Employer will receive, access, read or respond to any Response, or that there will be no mistakes in the transmission of the data. However, AcademiaHire may alert you when any of the above events occur.
As a Job Seeker, you shall not create or send any Response which: (i) contains any highly confidential personal information, such as bank account or credit card information, online account information, social security numbers (or similar counterparts outside the United States of America), health information, or other categories of data subject to special breach notification requirements in any country; (ii) contains proprietary information, trade secrets, confidential information, advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities, or other unsolicited commercial communication (except as otherwise expressly permitted by us in writing); or (iii) directly or indirectly violates the Site Rules.
AcademiaHire does not act as an employment agency by offering the AcademiaHire Assessments tool. By using AcademiaHire Assessments, you acknowledge and agree that AcademiaHire is not procuring employees for Employers or procuring opportunities to work for Job Seekers. AcademiaHire merely provides a tool enabling Employers and Job Seekers to exchange Assessments and Responses as they determine. The sole responsibility for the content of any Assessment or Response, any requests for interviews or offers made, any issues arising from an acceptance or denial of employment, and any other issues arising from the use of AcademiaHire Assessments, is solely with Employers or Job Seekers as applicable.
As a Job Seeker, you agree that any rights you have under any applicable employment, equality or discrimination laws, the US Fair Credit Reporting Act, any corresponding state laws, or any similar laws regulating consumer or credit reporting agencies in other countries, may only be asserted against the Employer. AcademiaHire is not a third party beneficiary of or liable for any agreements between an Employer and Job Seeker, regardless of whether or not AcademiaHire receives a fee from the Employer in connection with the transaction. AcademiaHire will not be liable for any costs or damages arising out of or related to such transaction. AcademiaHire assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, validity, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of the Site, the AcademiaHire Assessments tool, and any Assessment or Response.
As a Job Seeker, you take a variety of actions on our Site and you provide various information. For example, you search for jobs, and AcademiaHire knows and stores the titles of jobs you search for and click on, where those jobs are located, the general salary range or experience level of the jobs you view (if indicated on the Job Listings), the Job Listings you apply to, your amount of activity or time of most recent activity on AcademiaHire, information you provide directly to AcademiaHire including desired salary, or past experience, or any information in your AcademiaHire Profile, or any of your other behavior on the Site or information provided. You know exactly what this data is because you are the person who provided the information or undertook the activity and the data pertains only to your activity. If you have an AcademiaHire account or a Job Seeker Resume, you agree that AcademiaHire may associate this data with your AcademiaHire Profile and use this observed factual data to suggest jobs to you and to suggest you or your public resume to Employers that might be interested in a person who matches your behavior on AcademiaHire. You also agree that AcademiaHire may contact you based on this observed behavior or provided info on behalf of Employers or AcademiaHire itself. Please note, the aforementioned actions do not include information sent to you by a third party, however, AcademiaHire may publicly display the fact that you have recently used the AcademiaHire Site to correspond with a third party. In addition, if you set Your Resume to public, this means that AcademiaHire may share all of the aforementioned information about yourself with third-party Employers. If you do not wish to share such information, you may set Your Resume to private. When you make changes to your AcademiaHire Profile, including, but not limited to, updating, deleting, or changing settings on Your Resume, it may take a few days for the changes to be reflected.
In addition, you may have the opportunity to provide AcademiaHire with certain demographic information about yourself, such as your race and ethnicity, gender, age, LGBTQ+ community membership, and disability status (“Demographic Information”). By choosing to provide your Demographic Information, you agree that AcademiaHire may use it to evaluate and improve our products, and share aggregate summaries of job seeker information with employers. If you do not want your Demographic Information to be used in this way, do not provide it to AcademiaHire (or, if you have already provided your Demographic Information to AcademiaHire, you can request it be removed). You further acknowledge and agree that another Job Seeker’s Demographic Information is personal information, and to the extent permitted by law you waive any right to request or view Demographic Information pertaining to any other Job Seeker.
AcademiaHire may make screening tools available to Employers for Employer use in the application process, including screener questions, phone screen tools and assessments. AcademiaHire is licensing these tools for Employers’ use as determined by Employers. As a Job Seeker you agree that the Employer has made the determination to use these tools as part of its application process, and the questions asked are solely determined by the Employer, and are not being asked by AcademiaHire. The Employer is the sole party to determine which answers will qualify a candidate and is solely responsible for the use of the screening tool including any results which are considered to have a “disparate impact”. You further acknowledge that only the Employer is responsible for offering alternative methods of screening, if so required by the Americans with Disabilities Act or any other equivalent or similar law. While AcademiaHire is guided by WCAG 2.1, Level AA in our efforts to design and develop accessible offerings, as outlined in the accessibility statement, AcademiaHire does not warrant that the method of delivery of these questions is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act or any equivalent or similar law.
AcademiaHire Hiring Platform is a platform designed to automate and streamline Employer hiring and employment decision-making processes by allowing users access to various products such as AcademiaHire Interview, or related services (“AcademiaHire Hiring Platform”). Employers may offer you the opportunity to participate in hiring activities that might be supported by AcademiaHire Hiring Platform. You acknowledge and understand that Employers select the method and manner that AcademiaHire Hiring Platform will be used for its job openings and that the Employer determines the job requirements and specific needs of its hiring efforts.YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT EMPLOYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLYING WITH APPLICABLE LAW REGARDING ITS EMPLOYMENT AND HIRING PRACTICES, INCLUDING TITLE VII, AND THAT EMPLOYER INDEMNIFIES ACADEMIAHIRE AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS ARISING FROM EMPLOYER’S USE OF ACADEMIAHIRE HIRING PLATFORM OR SIMILAR PRODUCTS. ACADEMIAHIRE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY AND MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT EMPLOYER’S USE OF THE SERVICES COMPLIES WITH TITLE VII OR ANY SIMILAR LAW. AcademiaHire has no control nor participates in the hiring or decision-making process regarding Employer hiring efforts. Further, you understand that AcademiaHire is not an employment agency by offering AcademiaHire Hiring Platform and related tools. By using AcademiaHire Hiring Platform, you understand that AcademiaHire is not procuring employees for Employer or opportunities for Job Seekers. AcademiaHire merely provides AcademiaHire Hiring platform as a tool that enables Employers and Job Seekers to exchange information as they determine.
