Job Market Research
If you are exploring career options -- including specific industries, companies, job titles or salaries - we recommend utilizing the following resources to help you determine the kinds of skills and education needed, as well as the job projections for your desired career path:

State of Oregon Employment Department
Current data on Oregon labor and job market projections.

Occupational Information Network (O*NET)
National tool for career exploration and job analysis.

Salary.com
Search for average salaries based on position and geographic location.

Glassdoor
On Glassdoor, you can search jobs then look inside. Company salaries, reviews, interview questions, and more - all posted anonymously by employees and job seekers.

Glassdoor

DreamPath
The DreamPath career management tool pilot is no longer available to new users. The DreamPath Meetup Group is still available free to students and alumni.

Job and Internship Board
Students and alumni looking for a job or internship or who would like to share opportunities can access the job board via the LinkedIn Marylhurst University Career Network.


Résumé and Cover Letter

We offer Résumé Best Practices workshops and webinars. Upcoming offerings can be found on our events page.

We also offer résumé and cover letter reviews and suggest students and alumni attend a Résumé Best Practices workshop or webinar or review related materials prior to requesting a review. Gaining this valuable information in advance will allow us to focus the session on enhancing your documents beyond the basics.
