Career search assistance is provided by the Office of Career Service only to current students and alumni of Armstrong State University.

Caution Statement for Students

Armstrong makes no representations or guarantees about positions listed by the Office of Career Services. Armstrong is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. It is the responsibility of the job seeker to research the integrity of the organization to which he/she is applying. The student is advised to use caution and common sense when applying for a position with an organization or private party. The job seeker should not go alone to a residential address to apply for a position. Do not put yourself in a vulnerable situation. Even the best opportunity is not worth jeopardizing your personal safety.

Students, please be aware of fraudulent job postings. We will do our best to delete sketchy postings before you ever see them, but some may slip past us. Visit the website of the employer to check them out before you provide them with any personal information.


How To Spot a Scam

We would also like to assure students that all information provided to the Office of Career Services is considered confidential. Your career counselor may consult with other professional staff within the division to ensure that you receive the best assistance possible. Information, however, will not be released outside the division without your consent, except when required by law (i.e., reasonable suspicion of child or elder abuse, imminent danger to self or others.)
