Posting a New Job

You can post a new job from the dashboard, you Career job postings page, your Co-op job posting page.

In all cases, begin by clicking ‘Post a Job’ button.  If you are starting from your dashboard, you will have to select either Career or Co-op.

The new job posting form will prompt you to complete details about the job.  All fields marked with an asterisk are required fields.


The targeted Degrees and Disciplines fields allows you to set your preferences for applicant’s majors.  There are two lists in this section.  The first list is a short list of ‘Clusters’ or groups of majors.  Most of the time, you can work exclusively with this first list.  Select one or more major clusters to offer the job to.  Click the ‘Add’ button to apply your selection.


Your selected cluster will be added to the job postings.  Additionally, all the majors that make up that cluster will be added to the job.  In the example below, selecting the ‘Architecture’ cluster, targets your posting to students with a major of ‘Architecture’, ‘Architecture Studies’, and ‘Landscape Architecture’.


If you would like, you can refine the targeting at the major level by editing the second series of boxes, however, editing at the cluster level provides you with a streamlined menu of choices.  All of you selections will be reviewed by a Northeastern co-op coordinator prior to approval.

Next, you may wish to specify the application documents that you would like to receive.  Each students’ application requires a resume, but you may wish to enforce the collection of cover letters, references or work samples as well.
