Eagle CareerNet is our online career management system, powered by GradLeaders. Students and alumni may upload their resumes and job search documents on this system and make them available to employers. CareerNet has a calendar of career events and is also where MSU posts information on internships, seasonal, part-time, and full-time jobs. Students will also have access to employer contact information through this system.

HOW TO HELP YOUR STUDENT:

  1. Encourage them to attend class: Employers say that they want employees that have a good work ethic. Faculty are good references and have contacts with employers.
  2. Encourage them to put effort into their classes and learn communication skills: Employers say that good communication, both in writing (including email) and speaking are the most valued skills. Employers DO look at GPA.
  3. Encourage your student to take responsibility for their own career decisions and job search: A college degree will not get your child a job. They must be able to sell their skills to an employer. Employers want applicants that have learned to take initiative and have problem solving skills.
  4. Encourage your student to attend workshops, career fairs, and other events that will help them develop professional skills and networks.
  5. Encourage your student to dress for success. No visible tattoos or piercings. No cracks! (No low cut tops or low cut pants). Neat hairstyles and natural hair colors.
  6. Encourage your student to take advantage of services and mentoring available through MSU, including MSU Career Services, their academic advisor, and faculty.
  7. Encourage your student to do an internship, co-op, or service learning class. NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) reports that 70% of employers require that new hires have experience or internships. Many employers are using the internship program as a feeder system to hire full time employees.
