Automating the Communication of Co-op Job Offers to Applicants through NUcareers

What Automated Offers Does

For a given job posting, enables:

  • Automatic notification to students of job offers according to an employer’s ranking-preference;
  • Students to communicate to employers and coordinators their acceptance or decline of an extended offer in NUcareers

At any time during the job search period (August-January), employers have the option to invoke automatic offering for a job post.  


1)   Logs in to NUcareers

2)   Reviews applicants to a job

2)   Sets the application status of certain applicants to “Selected for Interview”;

3)   Expires the job posting

4)   Ranks those “Selected for Interview” in numerical order of hire-preference.

The number of “#1” rankings the employer assigns to interview-selects should always equal the number of openings available for the job title.  There can only be one #2, #3, #4, etc. ranking for the balance of interview-selects.
