New Employer Users:
Please see our Employer Registration page for important information and policies regarding NLCN and On-Campus Interviewing, and register for your free recruiting account.
The following services/resources are available on NLCN:
Job Postings: Employers who are not conducting on-campus interviews but are still targeting Penn State students will post full-time, internship, and part-time employment opportunities for students in all academic colleges.
On-Campus Interviewing: This service offers students the opportunity to interview for entry-level positions with a variety of employers from business, industry, and government. Learn more about on-campus interviewing.
Leads/Prospects: Sometimes employers don't have current job openings, but they do have entry level jobs and when these jobs become available, the companies typically need to hire right away. You will have the opportunity to "apply" for these leads/prospects through NLCN so when the job becomes available, you will automatically become an applicant for this position.
Information Sessions: Employers hold information sessions throughout the year. These sessions provide a chance for you to learn more about an employer, meet with recruiters, ask questions about various opportunities, and express your interest in current or future opportunities. These sessions are open to students who have an interest in the company and are required for students interviewing through OCI. To view upcoming information sessions, use the Events tab in NLCN.
Career Fairs: Career Services offers a variety of career fairs during the fall and spring semesters at the University Park campus. These fairs give students the opportunity to meet with a number of recruiters in person and in one location to explore various opportunities and to build networking contacts.

Job Posting/Company Verification Disclaimer
Read the full disclaimer which describes the shared responsibility among Penn State Career Services (including University Park and Commonwealth Campus career offices) and internship/job seekers in researching and identifying potential concerns about the legitimacy of employers and their respective postings.
Please note: In order to keep student records accurate, we have uploaded data from the Registrar to refresh the student list and update student profiles on NLCN. This data upload may have caused some changes in your profile (e.g., if you listed a major in your profile that has not been changed with the Registrar’s Office, the major will revert back to the one listed with the Registrar). Therefore, we encourage you to check your profile and make any changes/additions to the data that is not accurate. Please also note: the first time you attempt a search using your NLCN account you will automatically be directed to your profile page to complete two new required fields. You will need to update your Career Areas of Interest as well as Special Populations for programs. Once this is complete, you will once again be able to review and apply for jobs.
