Alumni Employer - Recruiting at NMU

[Recruit at NMU]  [Post a Job]  [Connect with Students]


Many alumni return to NMU year after year in order to recruit future graduates for full-time jobs and internship opportunities with their company.  If you are in a position to recruit for your company, we invite you to work with NMU Career Services staff and return to campus for a day of interviewing or register to attend one or more of our job fairs.

Career Services has the following services and facilities available to employers:

  • Private interview rooms
  • Conference rooms for group testing or information sessions
  • Advertising for your job vacancy
  • Resume Collection and Interview Scheduling prior to your visit

While companies are welcome to visit any time in order to recruit, NMU Career Services appreciates at least four weeks’ notice so we can ensure that your interview day is as productive as possible.

Employers interested in on-campus interviewing should let Career Services know about their recruiting interest by logging in to Handshake and filling out a request.  

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Posting Jobs

Alumni who are in a position to recruit NMU graduates and other alumni into their company are encouraged to post these vacancies for consideration.  Two options are available if you wish to post a position: 


Employers may post a job with NMU Career Services through Handshake.  There is no fee to post a job with the NMU Career Services office.  At your request, our office can forward postings to specific on-campus departments, as well as advertise openings on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.  We can also forward positions to the Alumni Association for posting on their LinkedIn page.
