"Student Employment Service (SES) at SUNY Geneseo acts only as a referral service. SES makes no recommendations or guarantees about positions and employers listed through this office. SES is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment. Due to the volume of jobs received by SES, we are unable to research the integrity of every position listed. Therefore, students are urged to take on this responsibility themselves. We encourage students to use common sense and caution when applying for any position. Do not feel pressured to provide sensitive, personal or financial information."
