Job Posting Changes
The Office of Career Services announces that effective Monday, Oct. 1, instead of placing advertisements at home.cua.edu, those wishing to advertise jobs not funded by federal work-study grants will need to post them through Career Services’ Cardinal Connection system. Cardinal Connection is already used by students who are looking for work-study listings, off-campus part-time jobs, internships and full-time positions. This change will provide them with “one-stop shopping” for all their employment search needs.

To list a non-work-study job, campus offices should go to http://careers.cua.edu, click on Employers, then On-Campus Employers, then Non-Work Study Campus Position Form. To get there directly, go to: http://careers.cua.edu/FORMS/CampusNWpositionform.cfm. After the information is submitted to Career Services, it will be posted to Cardinal Connection.

Students seeking information about campus jobs should go to http://careers.cua.edu, click on Cardinal Connection and follow the registration instructions. Once in the system, click on Jobs/Internships, type CUA in the Keywords line, and hit the search button. This will bring up all campus positions. Students can also find a list of campus offices that employ students at http://careers.cua.edu/handouts/campusjobs.cfm.

For more information, contact Amanda Jones, career services, Pryzbyla Center, Room 202, at 202-319-5623 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
