Job & Internship Services
Career Services has partnered with the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE), to provide our on-line CareerLinX recruitment system, powered by Symplicity. This system allows all students and alumni to register their resumes to our internet database; those resumes are automatically converted to searchable PDF files. Students and alumni can also browse and apply for specific employment opportunities that are posted by employers. Registration for this service is free to all students and alumni.
Likewise, recruiters can also register for CareerLinX, where they can post job opportunities for students and alumni to review, and can browse the resumes of qualified CBU candidates in the system. Registration for employers is also free.
Career & Internship Expos & Graduate School Expo
Career Services hosts Career and Graduate School Expos on campus each academic year. Admission is free to all CBU students and alumni. The Career & Internship Expo welcomes recruiters representing a wide variety of industries. Some events are specific to a particular academic school (Business, Arts, Engineering, Science), or to a particular range of employment (full-time, part-time, internships). Events are open to all majors and all employment types. A list of companies scheduled to attend will appear in the Career Directions newsletter in advance of each event, along with the academic majors each company is seeking.
The Graduate School Expo welcomes approximately 50 graduate and professional programs from around the country, representing a wide variety of interests. Check the Career Directions newsletter for dates and details as they become available.
Campus interviews arranged through Career Services give students the opportunity to interview with major companies, government agencies, and school systems. Our office arranges multiple individual interviews each year with dozens of organizations. Most of these interviews are conducted for full-time positions, and focus primarily on graduating seniors. Campus interviews geared toward internships are occasionally held for sophomores and juniors as well. Details on campus interviews are published in the Career Directions newsletter as they are scheduled by employers.
Career Services provides a variety of resources to assist you in adequately preparing for interviews. Students should prepare for a campus interview just as they would for any other interview, including appropriate research and professional dress. A Mock Interview is encouraged. Call our office to schedule a mock interview.
