Eagle CareerNet

With Eagle CareerNet, our online career management system, you can search for on-campus jobs, part-time jobs, full-time jobs, internships/co-ops, etc. The system also allows you to upload your resume and other documents, and view employers who are conducting on-campus interviews.



Throughout the semester, MSU Career Services holds events to help students prepare for employment and connect with local employers. These events include Career Fairs, Workshops, and Road Shows, which will be posted in Eagle CareerNet or available from this website. View our calendar of events.


Career Inventories
With a few short assessments in TypeFocus, you'll discover specific occupations and majors that best suit your individual strengths based on your personality, interests, values, and skills. Complete the assessments and schedule an appointment to develop a plan for your career success.

Resume and Cover Letter Critique
Your resume is the most important document in your job search. Before you put it into the hands of a potential employer, let a career counselor review it.

An individual session with a coach will help prepare you for an interview. You will be asked to respond to actual interview questions, and will be offered constructive feedback based on your responses.
