The Newman University Career Services Office provides students and alumni with a variety of resources for career planning and professional development. All students are encouraged to take advantage of the services available through the Student Success Center, located in Sacred Heart Hall on the Newman campus.

- Resume and cover letter review and writing workshops

Newman University Career Services recently announced that it had purchased the College Central Network program as its official resume and job posting service. Local employers may now post jobs exclusively to Newman via the CCN site. Students and alumni can also create their account profiles at www.collegecentral.com/newman. All students and alumni are eligible to use this program after registration.
This program allows students and alumni to:
- Easily search and apply to local and national full-time, part-time, internship/co-op job opportunities
- Create and upload a resume and/or career portfolio to make available to employers
- Access event announcements, career advice documents, podcasts, videos and articles
These are just a few of the services available through the program.
Understanding what career paths are available is a challenge for many college students, especially those who may still be exploring multiple academic program options. Newman offers individual career counseling and guidance to all students and recent alumni. Our career counselors work with students through a career-planning process that includes self-assessment, career exploration and independent research.
Career Services at Newman University helps student find employment in many different ways. Services are available for students seeking part-time jobs on or off campus, opportunities to gain experience in their field through an internship or job shadow experience, and those trying to secure a professional position for after graduation. Newman hosts an annual career fair each spring on campus with several dozen local employers who are available to meet with interested students. Newman’s online job board also provides a platform where students can research and apply for on- and off-campus opportunities.
