Job Search Resources

​Finding a job is a full-time job!  In a competitive job market you cannot afford to be under-prepared or to not explore all employment opportunities. The following resources can assist with your research, preparation and search strategies whether you are seeking your first full-time job or are going through a career or job change.

On-Campus Interview Program
Giving individuals access to a well-established base of employers who schedule and conduct interviews on campus for a variety of entry-level positions, as well as internships.  Registrants may view, apply for, and track on-campus interviews for internships and full-time professional positions through Career Central.  Resumes submitted for on-campus interviews must meet the employers' stated job specifications.  Each semester a few registrants fail to appear for scheduled interviews.  "No shows" and late cancellations are serious matters!  Employers spend considerable time and money to come to CMU; candidates are expected to keep their interview commitments.  All registrants are subject to our policy on late cancellations and "no shows."​ 

A great place to start your job search is by meeting with a career advisor to discuss search strategies and resources available for your individual search.  Advisors are available for face-to-face or phone appointments; call the main office number (989.774.3068) to schedule an appointment with the advisor who works with your program of study or interest area.

Internet Job Search Resources
The Internet has many excellent sources of employment and job postings but it should not be the only tool used to identify employment opportunities.  There is nothing wrong with using the large, internationally-known job posting websites, but it is recommended to use resources for your area of study or career focus (professional associations and targeted websites specific to your search).

CMU Databases
The links contained on individual subject pages may have employment or other valuable job search (or employer) research tools.
