Who We Are

CoolWorks.com and My.CoolWorks.com (Cool Works®, "CW", the "Site") is an advertising medium for employers, and an informational job search and community forum site for individuals. CW does not take a role in the selection or hiring for employers who advertise with us. CW is not responsible for any employment decision made by these employers.

CW supports sound hiring practices, and advocates the same to employers who post advertising with us.

CW reserves the right to screen employers who register to post jobs with us, and to determine the applicability of the employer to our "Jobs In Great Places"® standards. In addition, CW also reserves the right to refuse advertising services to employers, even if they had previously been approved. We take pride in our history on the web, our reputation as a resource for job seekers, seasoned professionals and employers, and our commitment to an outstanding employment advertising process. We may, at any time, make a decision based on these principles, or others, to terminate an advertising relationship or a pending employment ad.

Employers are encouraged to read the Best Practices for Online Job Postings as noted by the US Department of Justice.

As a note of Privacy protection for job seekers, we strongly suggest applicants never release social security numbers to prospective employers. In addition, we encourage all job seekers to educate themselves regarding appropriate Employment Policies/ Practices.
