Managing Application Packages

NUcareers allows students to upload resumes and application packages into the system and use these to apply for jobs, setting one resume and one package as their default.

When applying for a particular job you will be given the option to either:

  • Apply with an Existing Application Package
  • Create a Customized Application Package
