Post Job Opportunities

Posting your opportunities on CCO (using your NACElink @ Purdue account) is one of the best ways to reach Krannert/Purdue students and alumni and should be part of your recruiting strategy. The CCO website is Purdue’s main recruiting portal and it is accessed by thousands of students every semester. Most of Purdue’s career fairs are run through this website which increases student traffic. Even if you prefer students apply on your company website, you can post positions and direct students to your website to apply. Refer to our Job Posting Information to see the different options, our preferred format, and tips for posting positions. It includes details for setting up on-campus interviews and resumes collections (a preferred format).
