Welcome to Career Services at Northern Michigan University.  Whether you are a currently enrolled student looking for assistance finding an internship or help with your post-graduation career development, a high school student who is interested in finding out what options are available to you should you choose to attend NMU or an alumni who is considering a career change, Career Services can assist you.  The services and programs provided by Career Services are not aimed at only students and alumni.  Our staff provides a wide range of services to companies, organizations and individuals who are interested in recruiting/hiring NMU students.

At NMU, we’re proud of and value the partnership that we've helped form between the job seeker and recruiting employers.  This partnership has resulted in a 79 percent “placement” rate1 for students graduating from NMU, and a job satisfaction rate of nearly 85 percent.

NMU is a dynamic institution that encourages graduates to broaden their knowledge base in a high-tech learning environment that is tempered by hands-on, face-to-face interaction between faculty, staff, students and alumni.  This multi-pronged approach to learning is emulated by the Career Services staff as we help students in their career pursuits and assist recruiters in identifying individuals to meet their staffing needs.

Thank you for using NMU Career Services.  We hope you'll visit us in person soon.
