Create a username and password and complete a brief profile the first time you log on. After creating an account, you can upload your resumes and search the job postings. You do not need to post a resume to search for jobs, but you must post a resume to apply for off-campus jobs. A resume does not need to be on file to apply for on-campus work-study positions. For these positions, contact the individual campus department and the Office of Financial Aid.

The Office of Career Services approves all uploaded resumes and cover letters before they can be used. Until resumes and cover letters are approved, they are given a pending status. Resumes and cover letters are generally approved within 24 hours after posting. Once approved, you may apply for posted off-campus jobs; staff will also begin referring student resumes to various employers.

You are encouraged to update your profile (especially your contact information) each semester and keep your resume up to date. The information in the profile allows career services to alert you to career opportunities and provide information about upcoming events.

After applying for a posted position, or after a resume is referred , you are identified by employers for interviews. If you are are contacted, you are encouraged to contact the director of career services for help preparing for any interviews.
