    Privacy and Terms of Use Statement* (required reading)

    This Privacy and Terms of Use Statement governs the way Pure Michigan Talent Connect collects, holds and uses data that you may submit. Please be sure to read this entire Statement before using or submitting information. Pure Michigan Talent Connect takes reasonable precautions to protect the information of a user. When a user submits sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both on-line and off-line.

    Job Seeker Safeguards
    • Personal Contact Information: Job seekers control the amount of personal contact information they want made available to employers who access their resume.
    • User ID and Password: A job seeker's unique email address will be used as their User ID. The job seeker is then allowed to create their own Password. This User ID and Password is required for all future access to their account and profile. For security purposes, the system will prompt users to change their password every 180 days.
    • Privacy: A job seeker's personal data is never transmitted with the Password to employers.
    • Fees: Employers may not charge a fee to provide a job seeker with access to a job referral or as a condition of accepting a job.
    • Labor Dispute: Employers may not use the service to recruit replacement workers in a labor dispute, either through job postings or resume searches.
    • Profile Information/Resume Use: Employers may not use job seeker profile information or resumes from this site (whether received by searching or from the job seeker responding to a job posting) for any purpose other than to fill an immediate job opening. Employers may not resell or repost profile information or resumes found on this site, whether in whole or in part.
    • Jobs Posted: Jobs posted must be for an immediate opening. Business opportunities are not considered immediate openings.
    • Monetary Investment: Employers may not require a significant monetary investment by the job seeker in order to obtain employment. Usual and customary licensing fees or certifications are acceptable. Application fees, purchasing kits, work-from-home plans where costs are incurred, etc., are not acceptable.
    • Fraudulent Activity: While Pure Michigan Talent Connect takes reasonable precautions against fraudulent activity and validates employers who post on the site, job seekers are requested to be cautious with any online job searching.

    Job Seeker Responsibilities
    1. Posting of Material: Job seekers are prohibited from posting or transmitting any content that is obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, profane, unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, or otherwise inappropriate. The Workforce Development Agency, State of Michigan will cooperate fully with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing us to disclose the identity of anyone posting or transmitting any such information or materials.
    2. Job Seeker Status and Updates: Job seekers are responsible for maintaining their own career status, visibility to employer status, and profile updates. A ninety-day (90) period of inactivity will render a job seeker as unsearchable to employers. A job seeker’s account will remain active, but their profile will not be returned in employer candidate searches if the account has not been logged into within the past 90 days. A job seeker’s profile will become searchable again immediately upon login.
    3. Reporting Abuse: Job seekers are asked to assist us in maintaining the proper use of the system by reporting employers who do not follow the rules as described above. A “Report this Job” feature is found on each job posting. All reports are investigated by agency staff and addressed as appropriate.

    Pure Michigan Talent Connect reserves the right to modify or amend this Statement at any time. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Privacy Policy and all such changes. Continued use of the website after any such changes have been posted shall constitute your agreement to such changes.
