Job-seeking Skills

Career Services: Job-search Resources

If you’re looking for a job or new career, you know there are four stages. First, do your research on the job market. Second, find opportunities (jobs, internships, volunteering) in your field. Third, polish up your resume. Fourth, get prepared for your interview. Let’s get started.

Job Market Research

Explore your career options — including specific industries, companies, job titles or salaries.

State of Oregon Employment Department
Current data on Oregon labor and job market projections.

Occupational Information Network (O*NET)
National tool for career exploration and job analysis.
Search for average salaries based on position and geographic location.

On Glassdoor, you can search jobs then look inside. Company salaries, reviews, interview questions, and more – all posted anonymously by employees and job seekers.

Job Board

If you’re looking for a job or internship, or if you know if an opportunity you’d like to share with fellow students and alumni, access the job board via the LinkedIn Marylhurst University Career Network. Open to Marylhurst students and alumni only.
