Career Services

While Lincoln University makes no explicit or implied guarantee of job placement for graduates, it does provide career guidance. Each semester, the Director of Student Services conducts workshops on job search skills, including resume- writing and interviewing techniques.

By arriving at an early decision regarding career directions, students are able to make the most of their academic programs. Students get individual help in career exploration, advice and critiques on resumes, and help in determining job objective. Students also have an opportunity to practice their interview skills by participating in the mock interview seminars.

Both full-time and part-time job opportunities are posted on bulletin boards at the University. Also, employment information is available through the following websites: Job Journal, craigslist, monster.com, careerbuilder.com, and hotjobs. Job Journal is a very thorough website that provides resources on a wide variety of career topics which you will find useful. A limited number of students are able to take advantage of these job opportunities. The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) restricts work opportunities for international students. Full-time international students desiring work must comply with stringent DHS regulations. Students may receive consulting about the regulations from a designated school official or from the Director of Admissions and Records.
International students must submit Form I-538 and/or I-765 to the Records Office to obtain work authorizations prior to accepting any off-campus employment.

Students must also meet with the Director of Student Services prior to beginning credit-bearing internships involving off-campus employment.
