Important to keep in mind is that all Networking Job Board profiles are associated only with individuals and individual member accounts, not groups or teams nor companies. The reason for this individualistic or contextualized profile approach is…

  1. The familiar saying ‘A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and – thus – profile data makes much more sense when seen within an individualized context and perspective.
  2. Each member – making use of available Networking Job Board functions and featuresare solely responsible and accountable for his/her postings on, uploads to and comments submitted to the Networking Job Board. Individualized profile settings – therefore – allows for a more accurate tracing and deleting of individual user accounts responsible for posting offending materials and/or contents on the Networking Job Board.
  3. The key focus of the Networking Job Board is self-development, growth and the willingness to cooperate with other Networking Job Board members, regardless whether the individual is registered on the Networking Job Board as an employer, employee, HR-officer, recruiter or candidate.
