I also understand that nothing in this application for employment shall constitute a guarantee of employment for a specific period. In addition, I understand that no representative of COAST other than its Executive Director has the authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified time or to make any agreement contrary to this understanding. Further, I understand that any agreement modifying my At Will employment status must be made in writing signed by COAST’s Executive Director.
