Please see our Employer Registration page for important information and policies regarding NLCN and On-Campus Interviewing, and register for your free recruiting account.

Please note: In order to keep student records accurate, we have uploaded data from the Registrar to refresh the student list and update student profiles on NLCN. This data upload may have caused some changes in your profile (e.g., if you listed a major in your profile that has not been changed with the Registrar’s Office, the major will revert back to the one listed with the Registrar). Therefore, we encourage you to check your profile and make any changes/additions to the data that is not accurate. Please also note: the first time you attempt a search using your NLCN account you will automatically be directed to your profile page to complete two new required fields. You will need to update your Career Areas of Interest as well as Special Populations for programs. Once this is complete, you will once again be able to review and apply for jobs.

Policies for Third Party Recruiters
