Tips for Success

  • Fill out your profile completely. This way, employers will be able to quickly screen your qualifications. Recruiters will see the profiles that most closely align with the position qualifications first. Note: Work experience will be automatically placed in reverse chronological order.
  • Create efficient searches. Job postings are targeted to groups of related majors, so search for jobs under major groups that commonly fit in the career field in which you are interested. You can also select Yes to Show Qualified Only? to narrow down positions for which you are most qualified.
  • Customize your News Feed for relevant opportunities. Follow specific companies by going to Employers, selecting your search criteria, clicking on your desired employer, and clicking Follow Employer at the top.
