Tips for Using Career Connections

 NOTE:  This system is best accessed for the first time through hard-wired connection.  If you encounter problems, clear your cache and try again.

  • Post a resumé. Although you can access summer/seasonal, internship, and full-time opportunities after simply registering on CC, employers tell us that it is frustrating when a student/alumnus does not include a resumé. They want detailed information about your qualifications and most likely will not contact individuals who do not provide it. We highly recommend that you take time to post your resumé if you want to be seriously considered by employers.

  • Prior to posting your resume, send it to for a review by our resume review team or schedule an appointment to have it reviewed in person or virtually by calling +1 814 393 2323.  Uploaded resumes that have not been reviewed by the career development center may take an additional 3-5 business days to process.  If your resume requires many changes, it may delay approval.

  • When you update your resumé, be sure to upload the new resumé to your online account.

  • Update your account profiles at the end of each semester.

  • Update your "anticipated" college graduate date on your account profile.  Employers often search for candidates by Graduate Date.  If you do not list your anticipated college graduation date, you may miss out on opportunities.

Why are we using Career Connections (CC)?

  • Many of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education institutions partner with Symplicity which enables us to provide free online services to students, alumni, and employers. Clarion University is part of this collaborative project. 

Disclaimer: The Career Connection Network is a clearinghouse of information regarding job and experiential education opportunities. The listing of a position should not be interpreted as an endorsement. The Center for Career  and Professional Development is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other various aspects of employment.

Due to the volume of job announcements posted to the PA State System universities, Clarion University's Center for Career and Professional Development is unable to research the integrity of each person or organization that lists an internship or job on Career Connection's database. Therefore, students and alumni should personally research openings and organizations prior to submitting a resume to an organization or entering into any employment agreements.
