MLSC does not screen or censor the listings, including resumes and cover letters offered. MLSC is not involved in the actual transaction between employers and candidates. As a result, MLSC has no control over the quality, truth or accuracy of the applications submitted, the ability of potential employers to offer internship opportunities to candidates or the ability of candidates to fill internship openings and MLSC makes no representations about any internships.. While MLSC reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove applications, resumes or other material from the Internship Challenge database from time to time, MLSC does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
MLSC is not to be considered to be an employer with respect to an intern’s or a host institution’s use of any MLSC site and MLSC shall not be responsible for any decisions, for whatever reason, made by any host institution desiring to mentor an intern whose application is posted on the MLSC’s Internship Challenge database.
