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:  crogers@cbu.edu.

Articles & Advice

icon_leaderBecoming A Strategic Leader
From Forbes

My first job out of college was working for an advertising agency, one that was known as an innovative, smaller shop that had landed some top accounts. My job was to answer the phone and to keep my head down when stressed out account managers made unreasonable demands (“Can you get this package delivered to a client 15 miles away in the next ten minutes during rush hour?”) or when my temperamental boss threw a stapler. It was not a good fit.

I considered my options and decided that I needed more office experience, preferably in an area that would help me decide if I wanted to pursue an MBA. I accepted a position as a paralegal at a mid-sized law firm, where I was hired to help with litigation in the financial industry. While I knew I did not want to go to law school, I have never regretted spending two years at that job.

When you are just starting out, what is often difficult to determine is how to evaluate opportunities. I encourage new graduates to ask themselves three questions:  Read More…


notesFive Timeless Words Of Career Advice From Former Presidents
From The Ladders

Before becoming the leaders of the free world, nearly every president had to work his way up the corporate ladder, learning plenty of lessons along the way.

Among the 44 people who have held the title of Mr. President, their career paths varied greatly, offering a vast amount of diversity in skill sets and talents. While our inaugural leader George Washington worked as a surveyor, Ronald Reagan was an actor, William Howard Taft was a lawyer and Barack Obama worked as an education consultant among other gigs.

Arguably, all would credit President of the United States as their toughest, most demanding role, since it provided them with helpful wisdom. Luckily for you, they can offer tough lessons from the oval office, giving you a bit of studying material to end your long weekend. Read More…


importantNavigating First-Gen Career Pressures
From Inside Higher Ed

When I first told my parents I was leaving my job as an admissions officer to begin a doctoral program in history after just graduating from college a few years before, their first reaction was, “Why are you going back to school for so long instead of working to make money? And why aren’t you coming back home to California?” To immigrants who had spent years trying to make ends meet while raising three kids, the idea of not working so as to obtain another degree seemed, from their perspective, like a frivolous privilege.

Although I was committed to my own plan, I still understood their reaction. As I tried to come up with an answer that would satisfy their concerns, I fell back on a response that took advantage of their unfamiliarity with academe: “Well, I could make more money after I earn a Ph.D.!” Knowing that it wouldn’t likely be true, I felt it was the only way I could justify my decision to get a doctoral degree to my parents.  Read More…

hotjobsCBU has launched a pilot Campus Intern Program in a handful of departments across campus, including Career Services.  Other participating departments include Human Resources, the Plough Library, the Psychology Lab, the Art Studio, and Graduate Engineering.

Unlike our regular campus work-study program, these positions will require students to apply for, and interview for, each position that interests them.  These students “interns” will have greater responsibilities within each department, and will work approximately 10 hours per week.  Each position pays $9.25/hour.
