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:

Oregon Labor Market Information System (OLMIS)
Current data on Oregon labor and job market projections.

Occupational Information Network (O*NET)
National tool for career exploration and job analysis.
Search for average salaries based on position and geographic location.

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


We’re currently in a pilot to offer a free career management tool for Marylhurst students and alumni from DreamPath called Marylhurst ActionPath to help:

  • Identify companies that match your interests, education, experience and philosophy.
  • Select 2-3 companies based on the above research.
  • Do in-depth research on the above companies.

Marylhurst Action Path Webinar Tutorial

Sign-up for your Marylhurst ActionPath account with the option to login using a LinkedIn account. Initial access code is "career steps." Please contact Olivia Tang at for further questions.

Marylhurst Job & 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 quarterly on-campus and virtual Résumé Best Practice workshops, the dates of which can be found on our events page.

We also offer résumé and cover letter reviews, but suggest students and alumni attend a Résumé Best Practice Workshop prior to requesting a résumé review. If you cannot attend one in person, you can access a recording of our latest webinar. Gaining this valuable information in advance of a personal review will allow us to focus the session on enhancing your documents beyond the basics.



Preparing for the Interview
These sessions cover the different types of interviews, the importance of first impressions and building rapport, the STAR interview technique and active practice (for campus workshops). Students can access the recording from our most recent webinar.
