Job Search

Searching for a job can be a frustrating and time-consuming process, and it takes a commitment of time and energy. Some people will advise you, in fact, that searching for a job IS a full-time job.

The Career Center strongly encourages students to register with Nittany Lion Career Network where students and alumni can search for jobs and post their resumes. This site is highly recommended by Career Services.

If you have questions or need information, please contact CareerServicesBeaver@psu.edu, stop by our office in Suite 101, Student Union Building, or call 724-773-3961. 

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and by appointment.
