How to search for co-op candidate profiles in NUcareers

  1. Log in to nucareers.northeastern.edu/employers. This opens your Dashboard/Overview.
  2. Click on the red text banner ‘Search Digital Co-op Student Database’; this takes you to the Skills Profile overview page. You will see the work periods that candidates have submitted profiles to be considered for and the number of profiles available that can be explored for each work period.
  3. For the work period, you wish to explore available profiles, click the blue ‘View all Students’ button. Your Search Results present a list of students who have skills profiles posted for the work period. Click the ‘Filter’ button.  Scroll down to see all the filters that are available to you. Set the filters and then click the ‘Apply Filter’ button.  This will focus the Search Results according to the filters you have set. If you get no results, no profiles comport with the filters you have set, so you will have to choose different filters and apply them again.
  4. An alternative to the above approach of first viewing all students with profiles is to go directly to the filter panel from the Skills Profile overview page; to do this from the overview page click the blue ‘Search’ button instead of ‘View, All Students.’
  5. Note that upon applying filters to your search results, your filter settings are indicated at the top of the Search Results screen. Click the ‘x’ on any of the filter settings to delete a filter setting to reset your search results.
  6. If after applying filters you decide that you intend to use the same filters on future searches, click ‘Save Filter’ to save the filter settings.   Give the filter setting you wish to save a name, then click ‘Save Filter.’  This will load the saved filters into a menu at the top of your search results that you can select from to apply the filter with one click in future search sessions.  Note that If you wish to have the filters applied automatically when running future searches (i.e., without having to choose them from a menu), click ‘Manage Filters’ and next the saved filter name check the box ‘Apply on Page Load.’
  7. To view the details of a particular candidate’s profile, scroll down your Search Results noting the availability of each candidate’s email and phone number, class level, as well as college and program details. If from these details a particular candidate interests you, click the blue ‘View Profile’ button of the candidate; a separate browser tab will open presenting additional skill details about the candidate from his/her Profile.
  8. To view a particular candidate’s resume, in your Search Results click the blue ‘View Resume’ button of the candidate. A pop up will present the resume associated to the Profile.  Review the resume.  Click the ‘x’ at the top right of the Resume pop-up view to close it.
  9. You can bundle one or more resumes into a PDF file that you can print and/or email to colleagues. On the left side of the screen check the boxes of the Profiles whose resumes you wish to download; then click the blue ‘Actions’ button and select  ‘Download Selected Resumes.’   The PDF will appear in your browser’s download view.
  10. Contact candidates directly by email or phone.
