IV. Career Connections - online database

To access Career Connections

  • Go to the Career Center web site - www.muhlenberg.edu/careercenter - and click on the Career Connections icon
  • Log in using 'muh' plus the last 7 digits of your 'Berg ID as the username (ex. muh1234567) and use "mules" as the initial password.  (You can change the password after you first log in.)
  • Click 'enter' and you will come to the home page of your Career Connections account.

Jobs and Internships

  • Mouse-over Jobs & Internships from the navigation bar and select "Job Search" to conduct a detailed search of the database.  Opportunities here come from a variety of sources, and they may be listed by the Career Center or by the experience.com network.
  • Choose the "Jobs" tab for full-time permanent positions, or the "Internships" tab for internship opportunities.
  • You may multi-select job functions to broaden the search - criteria that are too specific may result in fewer or no hits.
  • The system gives you the option of saving searches so you won't need to make all the selections each time.

The list of opportunities you receive will contain the title, company, and location of the position as well as application deadline and interview date (if one exists).  You may notice a symbol under the "Interview" column.  This means the employer has scheduled a date to come to Muhlenberg to interview candidates for this position.

  • Click on the job title to view the details of the position, including how to apply.  Each employer has information about their organization, as well as a list of the positions they have available.  You will also notice any events associated with that particular employer.


V. Internet
Use the Jobs and Internships page of the Career Center's web site to link to some internet sites that list internships.

VI. Job/Internship Binders
Current opportunities mailed or faxed to the Career Center are stored in binders according to career field.
