When you use the GetWork Service after a modification is posted, you are telling us that you accept the modified terms.

If you have a written agreement with GetWork that states that it supersedes this Terms &Conditions (for example if you are a College or Employer Partner), then to the extent there is any conflict between the documents, the provisions in your separate agreement applies.

GetWork takes user privacy seriously and does not allow third parties from collecting student data, employer data, job descriptions, or other marketplace information from our Services through the use of automated scripts (“scraping”) or similar technologies or methodologies.

Account Creation

You need to have an account to use GetWork. You can create an account on GetWork as a student seeking a job, internship or career advice; as an employer to attract and recruit new talent; or as a training and placement team coordinator or officer. When you agree to the Terms in this document, you also agree not to misrepresent any information about yourself in creating or using an account.


Creating a Student Account Associated with Your College: 

You may create your Student Account because you are a student at a GetWork College Partner (“College Partner”). College Partners use GetWork as a service provider to manage their campus placements processes, such as scheduling meetings with students, arranging campus drives and other events, and passing resumes to interested employers. When College Partners sign-up for GetWork, they send us personal information about their students so that GetWork can provide these services.

Your College wills end you an email with information about how to activate your Student Account .After you do so, and we confirm your association with our College Partner, we fetch some details for you on your profile using the information your College has provided. We encourage you to review this information for accuracy. Some of this information may be locked by your College and you cannot edit it using GetWork (i.e. your College Roll Number). If you find any mistakes, please update the information or contact your College accordingly.


Creating a Student Account Not Associated With a College Partner:

You may create an account on GetWork if your school is not a College Partner by using your email address. We register you under GetWork All College where you access all open to all, Off Campus, opportunities.

You have the option to provide other information when creating your account, such as a profile picture, professional skills, and to upload documents, such as your resume or transcript. Any information or content you upload directly to the GetWork Service is governed by these Terms.

To create a student account, you must be at least 16 years old to use this Service.


Creating an Employer Account:

Employers are required to create a new “Employer Account” on GetWork before they start recruiting. Alternately, you may also reach out to our GetWork Team to help you with this process. Employer Partners do not have access to any student profiles unless they are approved by GetWork, or the student’s College, to access student profiles that the student chooses to share.

We also encourage you to share other information about your organization including the office location, industry, number of employees, and any details/photographs of senior and junior management.
