24 Vault Law Online Career Library 24 Security Options There are 3 different security options (can not combine options) to choose from depending on how your school’s site is set up. We need to protect the Vault page from general access by any user. It should be restricted to students from your school only. We plan on doing this by asking you, the school, to place the link to our Vault Online Career Library in a password protected area on your website that students have access to. Now, some schools might not have a password protected area already on their site. So, here’s where you decide what option will work for you. Option 1 (default): Students are sent temporary passwords for the library via . We will only send passwords to university domain names in order to verify and not to personal domain names such as hotmail, yahoo, AOL, etc. Currently, the domain name on file is if your university has additional domain names please send them to me. 1. Once they receive the password, they can access the content in the Vault Online Library. 2. The ed passwords change every 24hrs; each day a student wishes to use the library, he/she will retrieve a new password. 3. Please note that passwords will only be sent to current students, faculty and staff. We can not send passwords to alumni unless your contract includes alumni access. 4. This option allows for accessibility from remote locations Option 2: For schools that already HAVE A PASSWORD PROTECTED AREA that students log onto. If your school already has a password protected area that students can access, we can easily make the library secure by having your webmaster link to your library from that area. 1. On the Vault page we check where the students are coming from. (i.e. - What was the URL of the page they were on before they got to the Vault page? This is called the referring URL.) 2. The referring URL will either start with or https:// 3. Once we find out what the referring URL is we then compare it to the URL of the actual page that you put the Vault link on and if they match up then the student is allowed through. If not, they are sent to a custom error page with the option to for 4. DO NOT put any javascript in the library link in order to avoid accessibility issues. 5. This option allows for accessibility from remote locations Option 3: For schools that use IP addresses as a form of security, our system also works with IP recognition, which monitors whether students are accessing the library from the proper IP ranges supplied by the client. 1. Send me the IP ranges of computers which students will be accessing the library 2.This option does NOT allow accessibility from remote locations unless specified in school issued IP range. If you have questions or would like to change your security set up, please contact Sara Madsen, Client Services Coordinator,

30 Vault Law Online Career Library 30 Testimonials (cont.) “Vault.com is incredible. We have been introduced to immense opportunities for recruiting on the internet as a result of their dedication to our business. Their service is first rate and I could not have asked for a better partner.“ -- Tricia M. Pagano, Recruiting Coordinator, Strategy & Business Development Group, American Express Company “After using Vault I was able to exude a lot more confidence during interviews because I felt like I knew what I was talking about rather than memorizing useless information. To illustrate how helpful both the guides and snapshots are, take my offer from Deustche Bank for example. I, an Economics major (with no accounting background) have accepted to join Deutsche Bank for the summer with their Controlling Division which is primarily an accounting job. I was able to ace the interview by reading the guides pertaining to both the firm and the nature of the job.” -- Rutgers’ student Vault is…a “killer app” (New York Times), “vastly popular” (NPR), and full of “fun, edgy reads” (Forbes). Most importantly, Vault is “the best place on the Web to prepare for a job search” (Fortune). "Firsthand accounts by successful professionals in the field are an important part of the guides... These guides make for excellent starting points for job hunters and should be purchased by academic libraries for their career sections. University career centers should have them on their shelves." -- Library Journal (2003) “Across the board, Vault.com delivers in all areas of ‘what makes a job site good.’ What sets Vault.com apart…is its extensive company information, including insider reports and discussion forums by and for people you really work at the companies…it’s an excellent way to find out whether you fit with the corporate climate and to establish networking contacts. Overall, I give this site a ‘two thumbs way up!’ [Vault is] a fast and smart job seeker’s paradise.” -- The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Finding Your Dream Job Online “I think your guide to America’s Top 50 Law Firms is terrific. I don’t know how I made up my mind 50 years ago without some comparable help.” -- Warren Christopher, Partner, O’Melveny & Myers, Former U.S. Secretary of State “Vault has winner on its hands. Recommended for libraries and institutions providing career research support…a comprehensive source for all career-related informational needs.” -- Library Journal (2002) “Internet ignoring employers beware: [Vault.com] is so useful, if you're not paying attention, you are idiotic.” -- Scott Williams, Partner, McKinsey & Company, Quoted in U.S. News & World Report
