Using Nittany Lion Careers

Use one account to post your opportunity and streamline your experience.

  • Post your opening in Nittany Lion Careers and every Penn State student and alumni is able to find that opportunity.

    • This brings greater exposure and assurance that the click of one button will make the posting visible to over 84,000 enrolled students and alumni.

  • Control how you source and filter talent based on your needs. Any Penn State student or alumni can apply but you can limit or filter how you search through that talent.

Posting an opportunity in Nittany Lion Careers

From the home page (after you have logged in), select Jobs > Job Postings in the left menu to post a new position.  There are three pre-defined application options:

  • Email: Each time a student applies to a position, a message with attached application materials will be sent to the email address you have provided.

  • Accumulate Online: Students’ application materials will be collected online and you can log in to review them.

  • Other: Provide your own instructions in the How to Apply field. If Other is the only method selected, students will not have the option to apply through this system.

To ensure that your job posting reaches your desired student population, we strongly recommend that you provide a detailed job description and request specific majors of interest (as opposed to “all majors”).

Once you have submitted your job posting, career professionals will review it for approval (typically within two business days). Once approved, it will be available for candidates to view and submit applications.
