NIU uses an online placement tool called Huskies Get Hired. The software allows employers to post jobs, accept applications, choose students to interview and schedule on-campus interviews. The software allows students to post resumes to general “resume books” and to respond to employer job postings with a cover letter and/or resume.
We strongly recommend that all employers and students use Huskies Get Hired.
