TCCS Website Disclaimer
Teachers College Career Services (TCCS) provide this website to facilitate networking, career development and job searches for TC students and alumni.
TCCS is a useful resource for TC students and alumni, but it is one of the many resources that provide referrals for jobs and other opportunities. Teachers College expects those prospective employers working with TCCS to act ethically, but is not able to research the integrity of each organization or individual that lists an opportunity with us. Students and alumni should do research, ask good questions, and use common sense when applying for any job or internships identified on TCCS LINK, through other TC resources, or through any other source. Teacher College is not and cannot be responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspects of off-campus employment.
The TCCS website contains links to third-party websites. TCCS provides these links as resources to students and alumni. The reliability of the information available through these links depends on the policies and practices of those operating those websites. Teachers College can make no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the information provided by third-party websites.
TCCS LINK is an online career development resource and job posting database utilized to promote career opportunities and recruitment initiatives to TC Students and alumni. TCCS LINK is now available throught My TC Portal. To access TCCS LINK, Click here
