Important Instructions for Your Resume

Creating or posting resumes on Chibbz will automatically permit them to be stored in Chibbz’ profile and database resumes. Users have the liberty to set viewership limitations on your resumes. They can make their resumes visible, private or curb them to limited visibility. In the latter two cases, only recruiters with access to our database will be able to view your resume. However, incase a resume is viewed or downloaded by a recruiter, Chibbz does not hold the right to interfere with its privacy conditions or usages.

Private resumes are not publicly showcased in Chibbz’ profile and resume database. The process of seeking employment through a private resume is slightly different. When you make your resume private, it is sent to only the most relevant and pertinent recruiter or company for viewership. Upon viewership of your resume, Chibbz is no longer entitled to its use or privacy since a copy of your resume may be retained by that recruiter. Although private resumes are not publicly visible but information about the users procured by Chibbz from other public websites will be.

It must be noted that Chibbz strives its best to ensure that only guaranteed and legitimate users gain access to our profile and resume database, however we cannot guarantee the utmost exclusion of other parties with debatable legitimation. As resumes or profile information viewed and downloaded by a party cannot be retrieved by us, therefore it is advised that profile and resume creators abstain from putting up sensitive information pertaining to themselves for which they do not desire public disclosure.

This especially applies in case of listing referrals. Always make sure that details about the person, organization or institution that you have posted for the purpose of reference are backed by consent from the relevant source.

Chibbz does not appreciate entertaining resumes that contain controversial or sensitive data. Which means that while creating your profile and resume abstain from giving details of your race or ethnicity, your political, philosophical or religious stances or details of membership or affiliation with any such political or religious group. Abstain also from disclosing your biometric or genetic information, sexual and addiction history, sensitive information related to charges of criminal offenses, court proceedings or penalties assigned, involvement in illegal conduct or offensive behaviour and  information regarding your social security or national identification number. If you disclose some such information, you are required to take complete responsibility for it.
