    Students and alumni have 24/7 access to easily register, search jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities, send online inquiries, and manage multiple resumes, cover letters, and other employment related documents.

    Students and alumni use TLU Career Link to network with fellow alumni in the workforce. Students and alumni are encouraged to post their resume to TLU Career Link and update their profile each semester.

  • Employers & Recruiters

    Throughout the year we work directly with employers, graduate schools and nonprofits to host on-campus recruiting events to match your needs with the talents and career goals of TLU students.

    TLU Career Link for Employers & Recruiters

    Employers can quickly and easily post jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities, choose to receive “online applications” directly from the system with current resumes attached, sign up for career fairs and much more.

    Recruiters, employers, and alumni are all welcome to use their employer account on TLU Career Link to post information online about available opportunities, view students via their visual profiles and manage their on-campus presence. This is a great way to recruit talented students, soon-to-be-graduates, and alumni to your workplace.
