Career Services To Launch Integrated Career Management & Recruiting Platform

Coming mid-June, Penn State Career Services will merge all of its career management systems into one interface: Nittany Lion Careers.

This new interface aims to increase collaboration between career office staff at all campuses, provide more consistent service to students, alumni, and employers, and improve scheduling regarding career counseling and on-campus interviews.  Career fair information and career outcomes will also be more easily accessible with the new site.

University Park Undergraduate Association President Cody Heaton said that in addition to UPUA giving the system its full support, “The ability for any student or alumnus to be able to network and find jobs through one unified system is essential to 21st century career searching.”

One major difference in how the site will run is that employers and recruiting organizations will be able to search for potential candidates based on his or her qualifications, rather than limiting the search to a specific major or academic college. The system is already open to employers fall recruiting, including Fall Career Days.

“It has been heartening to see the team approach among career services professionals across the entire university,” Career Services Director Bob Orndorff said. “This collaborative spirit has empowered us to build a state-of-the-art, integrated career management system.”

More information about the transition to Nittany Lion Careers is available on the site.
