New Husker Hire Link features launched for faculty, staff

Career Services has launched new Husker Hire Link features that allow faculty and staff to connect students with job and internship opportunities. Those new features are “Job Widget” and “Husker Hire Link Faculty/Staff Accounts.”

The Job Widget provides a customized, scrolling list of current job and internship opportunities on department web pages. The list can be customized to highlight items related to students in individual departments. Students and alumni can view the list and log in to Husker Hire Link to see the details, including application instructions.

Husker Hire Link Faculty/Staff Accounts allow users to log in and access employer, job, and internship listing information including on-campus recruiting activity such as interviews, career fairs, and information sessions. Users can recommend specific opportunities directly to students. To request an account, go to

Husker Hire Link is UNL’s free online service that connects UNL students and alumni with employers. The site allows students to post and send resumes; search jobs, internships, and employers; request on-campus interviews; and stay updated on career opportunities. Last year, more than 2,200 employers from across the country in a wide variety of career areas used Husker Hire Link to post more than 8,000 jobs and internships.

UNL Career Fairs on Oct. 2-4 have attracted the highest number of employers since 2007 with more than 300 booths across the three days. The career fairs are open to all faculty, staff and students. An information booth including individual demonstrations of the new Husker Hire Link features will be available.
