Huskies Get Hired! for Employers

Career Services uses Huskies Get Hired (HGH) as our premier online job search database. HGH is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer.

Important Update:

Right now, the migration of the current Huskies Get Hired! (HGH) system to the Symplicity network is taking longer than expected. Most of the functionality of the new provider will be very similar, yet you will have additional resources to assist in the completion of your personal and professional goals.

Employers will receive an email when access to NIU's Huskies Get Hired! system is live in the new Symplicity system.
