Employers intentionally post jobs to MavJobs! Many of the positions found on MavJobs are from employers who specifically post to our system looking for MSU students and graduates, either because the employers are local to the area, or they have heard of our successful programs, or because they have hired other MSU students and alumni and see the quality of MSU candidates.
You can search on other job boards through MavJobs! Besides MavJobs.com, you can also search other job boards from within MavJobs, such as government jobs in USA Jobs, or jobs in another part of the country or world through the USA Career Guides and Going Global links. The Going Global section of MavJobs is a great resource for searching for jobs and internships overseas!
You can have MavJobs search for jobs specific to you! MavJobs now has a notification on the student home page whenever it finds jobs that look like they might match your criteria, based on your profile and any jobs you have looked at or applied to in the past. You can also setup and activate a search agent to get those notifications sent to you via email!
You can sign up for a career counseling appointment through MavJobs! Students can setup an appointment with one of our staff via the online scheduling tool available under Calendar|Counseling Appointment.
Tips about navigating MavJobs.com
You can upload your resume and apply for jobs and internships by first logging in with your Star ID username and password from the CDC homepage. Every student has a log in for MavJobs. That is how you get started!
STEP 1: The very first time you login, you will have to fill out a profile so the site has your information.
STEP 2: Upload your resume to MavJobs through the “My Resumes & Cover Letters” tab.
Upload your resume so that it can be included in the “resume book”. Employers looking for talent can then search for and reach out directly to potential candidates who meet their criteria – so you might get an offer to apply for or interview for a job with a company, even if the job has not been posted to MavJobs!
STEP 3: Search for jobs under the “Search Jobs & Internships” tab.
STEP 4: Follow the instructions on how to apply for specific jobs; each application process is different.
Don’t forget to check the Shortcuts section on the student home page for links to our helpful CareerSpots videos and Job Search Links by Major/Field!
