CBU CareerLinX Recruitment System Q&A

CareerLinx_shortI see “CareerLinX” mentioned in this newsletter all the time.  What IS that exactly?

CareerLinX is the recruitment system software used by CBU Career Services.  This system allows CBU students and alumni to view jobs, internships, and other opportunities posted by local and national employers, as well as on-campus intern and work-study positions!  Most jobs are posted by employers who we’ve worked with for years, and who are specifically looking for a CBU student or alumnus to fit the bill!

There are lots of other things you can do with CareerLinX, too (load resumes and cover letters, RSVP to workshops, etc.), but the main goal is to help you more easily interface with recruiters who are looking for someone just like you!

Do I already have an account?

If you were enrolled at the beginning of the year, then yes, you should already have an account under your CBU email address!  All current students automatically get an account as in-coming freshmen…and it lasts in perpetuity!   So if you missed the “System Welcome” message that was sent with your username and password, your account is still waiting for you!

If you’re an alumnus, or a new student who still needs an account, then you can sign up for an account at any time.  You can set your username and password to whatever you prefer.

How do I log in to CareerLinX?

Easy!  Just click here.  If you’ve not used your account before now, then your default username is your CBU email address.  Just keep in mind that your default password is NOT the same as your CBU email password.  CareerLinX is a stand-alone system (not part of your email, or Banner, or MyCBU), so the initial password is different from any others you may use.  If you already have an account, just use the “forgot password” link to reset it.  You can then change it to whatever you want!

What is the first thing I should do when I’m logged in?

As mentioned above, there are a lot of things you can do with CareerLinX.  But the first thing you’ll want to do is update your profile in the “profile” tab.  You can share as much or as little information as you want, but there are a few very important things to keep current…such as your major, your class year, and your anticipated graduation date.  These elements are the objective criteria that can effect your ability to view and/or apply for certain jobs, so be sure to update them at least once every semester…keeping that info current is VERY important.

Once you update your profile, we encourage you to explore all the other things you can do with CareerLinX.  If you have any questions or get stuck at any point, don’t hesitate to contact Curt Rogers in Career Services:

Articles & Advice

importantThe CEO of a billion-dollar brand says he doesn’t hire people with a red-flag quality that’s ‘the enemy of everything’
From Business Insider

If you’re heading into a job interview planning to self-deprecate and talk about all your past screw-ups, you’re probably not going to get hired. On the flip side, if you’re heading there thinking that you really deserve the interviewer’s job, you’re probably not going to get hired, either.

That’s especially true if you’re interviewing at billion-dollar glasses company Warby Parker. The company’s co-CEO, Neil Blumenthal, recently spoke with Jessica Alba, actress and founder of household products company Honest, at the Success Makers Summit in April, hosted by American Express OPEN. Here’s what Blumenthal said:  Read More…

questionmark39 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting My First ‘Real’ Job
From Forbes

It’s that time of year—graduation season. This May I will be celebrating a number of graduates, including three in our very own family. These students, combined with my frequent guest lectures on college campuses across the United States, and our decade-long study of millennials at the Case Foundation, have provided me a front row seat to the questions—and dread—that college graduates sometimes carry. Among the most frequent questions I receive from those poised to venture out into the world is, “What do you wish you had known when you were just starting out?”  Read More...

icon_leaderAre You A Leader Or A Follower?
From The Huffington Post

Leadership is the art of persuasion—the act of motivating people to do more than they ever thought possible in pursuit of a greater good.

It has nothing to do with your title. It has nothing to do with authority or seniority. You’re not a leader just because you have people reporting to you. And you don’t suddenly become a leader once you reach a certain pay grade.

A true leader influences others to be their best. Leadership is about social influence, not positional power.  Read More…
