Accessing and Correcting Your Information
For Further Information
There are two categories of information we ask you to provide as part of our online recruitment process: (1) Profile Information, which includes (a) your e-mail address, password, name, mailing address, and phone number(s), your education history, (b) your work history, and (c) your skills; and (d) the location in which you prefer to work, and how you heard about Baxter; (2) Resume Information, which includes whatever information you decide to submit from your current resume.
After you have furnished us with Profile Information, and provided us with your credentials, we also collect any updates or corrections to your information that you may provide, along with any instructions you may provide about retaining your Profile Information for additional periods of time.
Should the information you provide indicate that you are a likely candidate for a particular opening, we may request additional information from you as part of our recruitment process, through interviews, testing, or other means. We may also seek additional information about you from others, such as verifications of education or evaluations from past employers, based upon the information you have provided online.
We do this to track and sustain a user's session, giving Baxter an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting, and allowing you continuity as you move from page to page. We do not link IP addresses, domain names or information contained in cookies to anything personally identifiable. This means that the only personal information we collect from you will be the information you choose to submit to us.
We collect this information from you for only one purpose: to identify interested and qualified candidates to fill job openings at Baxter. Apart from its use within our recruitment function, we make no other use of your information.
The information you provide is used to compare your experience and qualifications with those required for positions with Baxter. Some of this comparison may be carried out by automated means. Since the type and format of the information you provide may have a significant impact upon determinations of your suitability as a candidate, it is in your interest, as well as ours, that you exercise care in describing your education, experience, skills and other qualifications.
If we are able to identify an appropriate match between your credentials and specifications and our specific job requirements, a member of our team will contact you directly.
