Co-op job searches will now take place on the NUcareers platform. The first step in getting started on this new system is to upload your job search documents, including resumes and cover letters that you, along with your coordinator, will use to apply for co-op positions.
It’s easy to get started and upload these documents. First you’ll want to login to NUcareers. There are two ways to do this:
- Click on the NUcareers link from your myNEU student portal or
- Select “Student” from the login center located at https://nucareers.northeastern.edu
From your main dashboard, select Cooperative Education on the left.
Then click “Documents.”
On the document screen, select “Upload a Document.”
The following page will prompt you to title the document, select the document type, and finally to upload the appropriate file. These documents will now be associated with your account. You can upload different types of documents, including resumes, cover letters, and work samples. Be sure to name these documents and select their types accurately, to make applying with them easier.
If you have more than one resume uploaded, you can also set a specific resume to be your default.
To do this, navigate to the Co-op Documents screen. In the action bar, select Set Document Defaults. Select either Resume or Package from the action bar drop down menu.
The list of documents will show up with a radio button next to each. Simply select which resume or package you’d like to set as your default and press Update.
This resume will now be your default.
Once you start applying for jobs, you can use these documents to create applications packages and begin the co-op search.
