General Job Posting Policies
Jobicy’s Job Posting Policies are designed to govern the content that is returned in our results globally. These governing policies represent Jobicy’s goal to provide the best job search experience for our users.
Messages sent via Jobicy.com should generally follow the same rules as job postings in that you should not use these messages to circumvent job quality guidelines. When communicating with candidates please be mindful of the following guidelines:
Present a specific and relevant job
No candidate should be served a list of available positions to sift through. When communicating with candidates, the position being presented should be clearly stated and relevant to the candidates contacted. Your job should be a good fit for a candidate’s experience and career status.
Include job details and identifying information
Your message should include the job’s location, title, requirements and compensation structure. If your message also includes a link, it should send candidates directly to the job information. Be sure to include the name of your company and its location as well as your name and title. Use your company email address, if possible.
Be considerate of candidate privacy
Do not request sensitive information to be sent directly over a message. Please be considerate of candidate privacy throughout the hiring process and communication on Jobicy.com.
Transparency and Accessibility
The application process must be transparent and simple to navigate. Applications must be tied to the specific job that was posted and not a talent pool. The job description must make clear the job poster’s relationship to the end employer, especially in the case of third party recruiters.
Applicant personal information gathered in the application process should be treated carefully within your company and never made available to third parties.
Jobicy.com believes that jobs seekers should be considered based on factors directly related to their ability to successfully perform a job. Job seekers should not be excluded or dismissed from consideration based on characteristics that do not affect their job performance nor the success of the hiring party. Jobicy.com will remove jobs that violate these standards.
Jobicy.com does not allow job opportunities which violate any applicable laws, nor does Jobicy.com allow any jobs which require the eventual employee to violate any applicable laws.
Platform Abuse Policy
Jobicy.com does not allow the development of content or systems that attempt to manipulate the ranking of jobs on our platform or circumvent Search Quality systems. Frequent reposting of roles or posting roles in locations other than where the job is offered are examples of behavior that is discouraged and may impact content visibility on the site.
Employer Posting Policy
The following positions will not be posted on Jobicy:
- Compromising positions such as adult entertainment, escort services, presentation modeling or activity associated with the use of alcohol or drugs or other controlled substances;
- Work in private homes for duties such as child care, nanny, yard work, moving, painting, maintenance, etc.;

Commission-Based Position Policy
Positions that are solely commission-based will not be posted on Jobicy. For other commission-based positions (e.g., base salary + commission) Jobicy will request the following information to be submitted for review, prior to posting on Jobicy:
- Is a college degree required/preferred for this position?
- Does this position offer a base pay plus commission? If so, please specify.
- Is there a documented earning record for this position? If so, please specify.
- Does your organization provide and reimburse training for this position?
- Is the employee responsible for purchasing materials/supplies for this position? What is the employee expenditure?
Jobicy may append the above responses to a commission-based posting, so as to fully inform candidates. Jobicy reserves the right to deny a company posting if said company misleads or attempts to mislead Jobicy or a candidate about the nature of the position.
Network Marketing Companies Policy
Network Marketing Companies are not considered “employers” by Career Services & Professional Development and are not eligible to participate in Handshake, or in career fairs, on-campus interviewing, résumé referrals, Miami employer presentations, and/or sponsorships for on-campus activities.
Career Services & Professional Development considers organizations that engage in the following to be Network Marketing Companies:
- Sponsoring an individual to set up his/her own business for the purpose of selling products or services and/or recruiting other individuals to set up their own business. AND
- Requiring an initial investment from this individual, with the organization itself serving as an umbrella or parent corporation. The initial investment may be direct payment of a fixed fee, payment to attend an orientation or training session, a “deposit” for materials, and/or purchase of a starter kit.
Another characteristic of a Network Marketing Organization may be that compensation is often in the form of straight commission, fees from others under their sponsorship in the organization, and/or a percentage of sales generated by others.
No Buy-ins or Fee for Service
No posting will be accepted if applicants must pay to purchase access for opportunities or a position that requires a potential employee to provide funds to a supervisor or other company representative for services. The only exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis for legitimate organizations that facilitate the opportunity for college students and graduates to work abroad outside of their home county.
Adult Consumption/Adult Entertainment
No adult entertainment industry positions, escort services, presentation modeling or similar activity associated with the use of illegal alcohol or drugs, as noted by the Commonwealth of Virginia, will be accepted.
