Wage posting requirement

If your company has a policy against posting a wage rate or range of a position we will happily list the job for you under our category that states that you are not listing a wage for this position.  These positions do not get the same level of interest that positions that list a wage rate or range get.

Work Authorization


In compliance with federal and state law, Cabrillo College does not permit the use of work authorization, visa status, or citizenship data on the online job board. This action is in compliance with a Department of Justice determination. More information can be found at the following Department of Justice website:


Cabrillo Student Employment assumes that a prospective employer will advise all job applicants about the employer’s responsibilities regarding any specific job requirements in order for the employer to be in compliance with the various United States national security or export control statutes that might affect the position being posted. Volunteering of this information could be provided at the time of application or when a prospective applicant makes a position-specific inquiry.

Employment Agencies

The Cabrillo College Student Employment Office is happy to work with third party recruiters and (free to the student) employment agencies.

The office maintains files of information on agencies for students to access. We also accept individual job orders for specific position openings but do require that the staff be provided with the name of the actual employer. This information is not released to the student, and is utilized only to assure that positions are not cross-listed by both the employer and the agency with our office. The third part recruiter or agency who works most professionally with our office, (posting regular listings; updating and closing jobs in a timely manner; reporting Cabrillo students hired, etc.) is invited to attend our annual Job Fair.
