Career Services



Let’s face it.  You’re probably not in school for just a good time.  You’re here to gain the education and skills you need for the career you want.

NAU wants to ensure that you are ready for the job market when you graduate. 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. Several classes are built into the curriculum to help guide you to finding a job and managing your career.  Our faculty and program chairs also contribute to this effort.  Career services directors are available to help you with resume writing, job search techniques, dressing for success, and more.
