New graduates. . . with experience.

The candidates you will source from National Louis University are new graduates, offering all of the enthusiasm, creativity and innovative thinking that comes with a fresh life transition. Beyond that energy, however, you get a candidate who already has experience.

Since 1886, National Louis University has provided access to quality higher education supported by a commitment to nurturing opportunity for students. In particular, faculty and staff are devoted to helping “nontraditional” students transition into a meaningful career, one that capitalizes on their motivation to do better and be better, where they can flex their intellectual capacity and put a wealth of real-life experience to work. NLU students approach their education with purpose. When you employ an NLU graduate, you not only hire an emerging leader, you are providing a hand up in supporting the communities where our students reside.

Are you interested in recruiting National Louis University students and alumni? Please register and login to HIRE NLU, a full-service job posting tool. For assistance, contact the Career Development Office at 312-261-3270 or

More than getting to know you virtually, the Career Development Office will reach out to you to engage in a conversation about specific needs and internal recruitment goals. Our hope is that we can integrate our talent into your existing hiring strategy. We look forward to collaborating. You can reach any of our team at 312-261-3270 or

As an NLU Employer Partner, we invite you to engage with our students on a meaningful level, be it through on-campus interviews, co-teaching a class, leading professional development workshops or allowing students to come onsite for job shadowing and informational interviewing prior to graduation.

Contact the Career Development Office at 312-261-3270 or to discuss your specific needs.

We hold our students to high standards when it comes to career readiness, interview performance and ongoing success once employment is retained. We also have expectations of our Employer Partners.
