Students & alumni
The 21st Century Workforce is different from what previous generations have experienced, and we want you to be ready! We recommend that you follow our Career Progression Plan to complete key milestones each year, so that you will be career-ready upon graduation!
Follow the links below to learn about important career topics, and how we can help.
How we can help
We are ready to help! Undergraduate students can get feedback from a Career Professional within 3-5 business days by submitting your application materials to our Resume DropBox. Graduate students and Alumni can also get application materials reviewed by making an appointment with our office through Handshake.
We are excited that you graduated, and want to continue to support you in your career journey. Our individual advising appointments are free for 12 months after graduation, and then available for $40 per hour or a package of 3 appointments for $100. (For comparison, private career counselors typically charge $100-$150 per hour).
To schedule appointments, visit Handshake, NAU’s online recruitment platform. Alumni have access to Handshake at no charge for life. We encourage you to use Handshake not only for your own job search, but to recruit our students to work at your organization.
The majority of our web-based resources are also available to alumni no charge for life. We are exploring ways to make our Career Steps available to our alumni. We also encourage you to visit the Alumni Engagement website to find ways to stay connected to NAU.
