Best Practices


Optimize your search strategies.

More than 1,000 jobs and internships are active at any given time. To find the most appropriate opportunities for you, initially search by “Position Type” and “Job Function” because employers are required to complete these fields. Employers must also designate location and salary range, which you can include in an advanced search. To narrow your results, search according to your major or concentration or for positions for which you qualify based on your profile. 


Create search agents.

Configure multiple search agents that trigger automatic e-mail announcements when new positions that match your search criteria are posted to AU CareerWeb. Build search agents in the “Advanced Search” tab within “jobs and internships” and set the frequency of your e-mail alerts in the “Saved Searches” tab.


Upload your resume and cover letter.

Several employers allow students to apply for positions directly through AU CareerWeb. Take advantage of this convenience by uploading your resume and other application materials through the “documents” tab. Label your document so as to distinguish it from others and keep in mind that your label is visible to employers. 


Register for events on campus.

Quickly and easily RSVP for on-campus events, including fall and spring Job and Internship Fairs, networking receptions, and employer information sessions. Prepare for the events by reviewing critical details and lists of participating employers.


Research employers.

Before applying to an organization or speaking with employers at on-campus events, review organizations’ profiles in the “employers” tab and even search for employers who offer value-added internships.

ACCOUNT TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS


Password Strength

Your password must be at least 6 characters long and meet the requirements for a strong password. A strong password is easy to remember but hard to guess. Consider a combination of uncommon words, upper and lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers.

Logging in After Resetting Your Password

If you reset your password after too many incorrect login attempts, remember to clear your browsing history and open a new browser before you attempt to login again.
