Recourse Communications, Inc. ("RCI") invites you to use the various services provided by BestJobsUSA ("Services") and our network of sites ("BestJobsUSA" or "Site") subject to your agreement with our standard Terms and Conditions ("Terms").

OUR RIGHTS AND YOUR RIGHTS RELATED TO BESTJOBSUSA'S SERVICES ARE DESCRIBED HERE. PLEASE READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLY AS YOUR USE OF THE SITE IS, IN EFFECT, YOUR AGREEMENT TO OUR TERMS.

YOUR ACCOUNT

You must provide true and accurate information when you create your BestJobsUSA account. Your BestJobsUSA account gives you access to Services and functionality we may establish and maintain at our sole discretion. If you connect to BestJobsUSA with a third-party service, you give us permission to access and use your information from that service as permitted by that service, and to store your login credentials for that service. You may not use another user’s account without permission.

FOR JOB SEEKERS

Our purpose is to provide you with easy access to a variety of BestJobsUSA and/or third-party services and resources. Our goal is to make researching potential employers and connecting with them easier than it would be using traditional job boards and/or search engines.

  1. BestJobsUSA wants to facilitate relationships between you (as a qualified candidate for any position being advertised) and employers who use BestJobsUSA as part of their branding and/or recruitment initiatives. Typically you can distinguish these employers by navigating their self-hosted webpage via a live link on the Site. As such, you should think of BestJobsUSA and any lists that we produce or publish as a simple directory listing for reference only, except in those instances where we link to an employer from a BestJobsUSA-hosted page, post, account, or email address. In that case, you can think of BestJobsUSA as a referral service for which an employer who has paid us to provide those links to you.
  2. From time to time we may link to an employer who has not paid for Services. We may do this because the employer is a customer of RCI, was a customer of RCI, may become a customer of RCI, and/or in our judgment we feel such a link would be mutually beneficial to you and that employer.
  3. To facilitate direct contact between you and a potential employer we provide a number of services. These include job posts published on BestJobsUSA, hosted careers pages/sites, RSS feeds, and job posts, etc.; search engine results pages; and in some cases, direct contact via email, text/SMS, automated and/or live phone calls. You can opt-in to similar services for a specific employer or campaign by signing for a BestJobsUSA-hosted <a target="_blank;" href="http://bestjobsusa.com/sections/talent-community/">Talent Community</a>.

LISTS PUBLISHED ON BESTJOBSUSA

BestJobsUSA publishes, cites and reproduces a variety of employer, listings. We would like to make you aware of the following:

  1. Use of terms like "Top," "Best," "Select," and "Ranking," etc. are not being used by BestJobsUSA to describe or endorse any employer in particular. As used to generally describe a BestJobsUSA list or recruitment campaign, such terms should be considered as our poetic license.
  2. We reference and reproduce many lists and "rankings" originally published by third parties. BestJobsUSA has not validated, nor endorses, any claims being made or supported by and/or on behalf of an employer mentioned in these lists. Bear in mind that BestJobsUSA sources data from different places across the Web. We make this available to you as a convenience and for reference only. You should check with the original publication for the current status of any list or ranking we refer to and/or employer mentioned.
  3. BestJobsUSA is not responsible for any inaccuracies or misinformation contained in any list or ranking that it references or reproduces including any misstatements given to BestJobsUSA by a participating employer or their representatives for their inclusion to a BestJobsUSA publication or recruitment campaign.

FOR EMPLOYERS

BestJobsUSA's Services apply our resources, technology, expertise, and project management to help you craft, advertise, promote, distribute, and optimize your recruitment messages to as wide an audience of qualified candidates that is possible, and which is consistent with the Service you may choose from time to time.

To assist you in your employer and job branding, recruitment advertising, and to generally attract job candidates we do the following things:

  1. BestJobsUSA provides creative services and produces recruitment advertising using a variety of methods, media, and materials ("Content"). Content may include dynamic or static web pages, print publications, text/HTML documents, video, audio, graphics, online postings, life-streaming updates, branded emails, automated voice mail messages, and other forms of advertisement; and RSS feeds, code or software for its delivery across multiple digital and analogue channels.
  2. BestJobsUSA distributes content via a variety of web-enabled services and electronic communications. We may also use from time to time analogue media such as print advertising, banners, and billboards, etc. In addition to using the Site, its branded social media and online communities, and/or proprietary databases to distribute content, on occasion, candidates may be contacted in person on your behalf. Such previously approved communication may be delivered in the form of email, text/SMS message, automated and/or live phone calls.
  3. At its sole discretion BestJobsUSA may distribute content via third parties' social media and networks, job boards and other digital marketing channels. In this case, when you as the employer are referenced explicitly, or in connection with a recruitment campaign, you agree to be bound by the applicable terms of service for those third parties.
  4. Beyond hosting Content on your behalf, BestJobsUSA wants to increase your visibility using a variety of optimization tools and techniques. These include generation of uniquely identifiable links to help track BestJobsUSA generated traffic but which may not be immediately recognized as such because of the way we distribute Content on your behalf across multiple channels and media. BestJobsUSA also uses badges, logos, and banners in support of campaigns you could be participating in. This further helps our joint optimization efforts.
  5. Whenever possible, you agree to partner with BestJobsUSA in the promotion of your brand and employment opportunities by using the links we provide in place of traditional hyperlinks, and to include our campaign logos, etc. on your career-related web pages, in your job postings, and recruitment advertising, etc., and acknowledge that without such collaboration our ability to deliver our optimization goals and subsequent results may be negatively affected.
