Career development is central to the mission and the overall purposes of the university, and the career services staff has the responsibility to assist students and graduates in this important endeavor. Faculty, staff members, alumni and others also contribute to this effort.
Career services directors and the director of student success office at each campus assist students and graduates with employment or enhanced employment. Interaction with employers and alumni, participation in the career management class, career fair sponsorships, assistance with preparation of resumes and other written materials, on-campus recruitment by employers, part-time employment, internships, Internet utilization, and Federal Work-Study jobs are some of the means used by NAU to facilitate employment and career development of students and graduates. The university prepares and reports statistical information on employment of graduates. NAU students and alumni are informed and empowered by the ability to link to the world's job market through the NAU career services web site: www.national.edu/career-services.
