DeKALB Career Services will host an online workshop, Huskies Get Hired Tips and Tricks, for students and alumni seeking employment and internship opportunities. The event is today at 3 p.m. and ends at 4 p.m. 

Pre-registration for the event is not required. Students can access the event from the NIU website.  The event will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. 

The workshop will teach students how to use the Huskies Get Hired system so that students can find on and off campus employment, internships and post graduate employment, according to an email sent by Dr. Brian Pillsbury, the faculty contact for the event. 

Pillsbury encouraged students to attend the event in the email. “By attending this workshop, students will learn to use HGH [Huskies get Hired] to look for positions more effectively than just using keywords,” he wrote in the email.  

Students will also learn how to use Huskies Get Hired to attend the upcoming Virtual All Majors Internships and Job Fair on Feb. 17. Huskies Get Hired is also the main site NIU departments use to hire student employees.
