UNO Career Services staff offers job search assistance to current students. The tools and resources utilized include:
|The focus of the Job Location and Development program is off-campus positions and recruitment. For Information about workstudy jobs, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid. For information about other on-campus jobs (e.g., graduate assistantships, lab technicians, and other student positions), contact the various colleges, departments, and/or divisions in which you are interested working.
Students enrolled at the University of New Orleans can access information on full-time and part-time, summer, flexible, temporary, and other employment opportunities through the Opportunities Database.
By using the Opportunities Database, students are able to develop a profile describing their academic information, skill sets, goals, and industry interests. Students need to update their profile each semester regarding their current GPA, classification, any change of major, and contact information.
To search the job postings, simply click on the tab labeled “Jobs.” As a reminder, this is a search engine. The results will depend on the selections made and what data elements the employer tagged in the job posting.
Students will upload a professional resume. Resumes will be viewed online by the Career Services staff. Resumes are available to be sent electronically to employers in response to job postings, if the student allows permission for “Employer Viewing.”
If you have any questions regarding the use of the Opportunities Database, please contact Career Services at 504-280-6225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The employer recruits on campus through information booths, information sessions, presentations to student clubs and organizations, and pre-selections for interviews. To optimize your recruitment possibilities, register on the Opportunities Database. Job postings will be posted for on-campus recruitment events, and if interested, student will drop their resume for submission for a job announcement. This is a pre-selection step. Recruiters will then review the resume packages, and invite the selected potential candidates for an interview. Interview slots are scheduled through the Opportunities Database.
Back to Top
Students are encouraged to take advantage of employers/recruiters/hiring managers that present on campus. These employers will present on their company, hiring trends, cutting edge skills needed in a particular position, and other pertinent information in the industry. Students have a prime opportunity to learn about the academic and career connection and to network with these employers. Information sessions and booths for career related events are announced through the Opportunities Database.

• Commit to the Process
Know the search is likely to take longer than expected. Be aware that some employers may not know if they can hire until later! Patience and persistence are essential.
• Form a Job Search Group
Work with other students and meet regularly for ideas, motivation, and support.
• Use Job Search Resources
Use as many resources as possible including career fairs, networking events, social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), student organizations, faculty and staff, and company Web sites.
• Let Others Help with Your Job Search
Share your ideas and job desires with others (family, friends, faculty, supervisors).
• Personalize the Process
People remember faces and stories. Introduce yourself and meet as many people as possible. Make a positive impression that encourages others to think of you when they hear of an opportunity.
• Try Different Approaches
Email your resume, personally deliver your resume, ask a friend to forward your resume, or mail your resume.
• Be Open to a Variety of Employers
Consider a range of industries, companies, and locations. Research companies that might have opportunities even though they might not be your first choice.
• Consider Graduate School
While this may seem particularly attractive when there are limited job prospects -- the decision to attend is best made when you have a clear focus and goal.
• Utilize Informational Interviewing
Informational interviewing is an interview conducted with a prospective company to find out more detailed information about a job, career field, company, or industry. It is similar to a business meeting, but less stressful than a job interview.
