Job Opportunities & Career Services

NIU  provides resources and services for students who are interested in a part-time job off campus, career planning or an internship, for employers who wish to recruit NIU students.

NIU alumni can take advantage of many of the same career resources they had access to as students: job search resources, an online job search database and fall and spring job fairs.

NIU produces the employees who will shape the society -- and drive the economy -- of tomorrow. Nearly 90 percent of our graduates live and work in Illinois after earning their degrees.

Eighty-five percent of NIU graduates are employed in a field related to their major within six months of graduation.
