Student Life

Internet Job Sites

Western Illinois University and the WIU Career Development Center (CDC) are not responsible or liable for locating and securing employment (full-time, part-time, internship, co-op, summer, or contract) for any student and alumni. In addition, WIU and the CDC cannot guarantee any sort of employment for any student and alumni. Regardless of a students graduation date (December or May) they need to begin the job search process earlier because often many employers will concentrate their recruiting efforts during the fall and will have already made their hiring decisions.

The use of these (or any) Internet web sites is solely the responsibility of each user. WIU and the CDC are not responsible for any possible registration regulations, charges, or third party recruiter fees when using these (or any other) sites. Posting your resume on any web site is solely your responsibility.

Third party recruiters (search firms) routinely post and search Internet job sites. Be aware that often there are fees or costs involved when working with third party recruiters. WIU and the CDC are not responsible or liable for any fees or costs. Utilizing a third party recruiter is solely your responsibility. Never give any personal information (social security number, credit card number, or bank account information) to anyone through the internet or over the phone.

Using the Internet

Start your job search by using one of the user friendly entry level / new graduate sites. On these sites you may only need to type in a specific job title and geographic location to find the desired results. At times you may have to broaden your key words to find the appropriate job title that you are seeking. Some of these sites will offer pull down menus of job / occupational titles. You may begin with these, but ultimately you may have to use specific key words that you will type into the site.
