Post a Position

The key to recruiting at Northern Kentucky University is registering with HireNKU and posting a position (free). HireNKU is a centralized online recruiting database for accessing students and alumni of all majors. Posting your position allows:

  • Career Services staff to market your opportunity to a qualified demographic.
  • Perusal of resumes of pre-qualified potential applicants.
  • Emailing of students as a group and scheduling for interviews.
  • Students to view your position(s).
  • Faculty to locate your position for classroom announcements.

Tips for Posting Positions and Searching Resumes:

  • Name your position carefully – this is what will entice students to click on your opening. If it’s a co-op or internship, state this in the title (such as Marketing Co-op).
  • We do not post part-time positions in HireNKU; however, if this part-time position requires professional skills or knowledge (such as Accounting), choose the ‘Internship/Co-op’ option.
  • Choose your majors:
    • Students can opt to not view positions that have chosen ‘All Majors’.

    • Students search by major. The more majors you choose, the more students will see your position. Liberal arts and humanities majors should not to be overlooked when targeting a student demographic.
  • Most users choose ‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’ classifications, however, Sophomores may be a good fit for very entry-level positions to grow into higher-level skill sets.
  • Degrees are often a forgotten category; NKU does have Associate and graduate degrees.
  • ‘Screening Option’ is what limits the type of demographic that can see your position – use this for positions requiring a GPA minimum or a specific major such as Computer Science (software development).
  • The best way to search resumes is by ‘Major’.
  • All positions and contact requests are reviewed by the Career Services staff.
