Log-in to Nittany Lion Alumni Recruiting

For alumni who have previously registered for NLCN (or NLR), you can continue to use the account established as an undergraduate. Initially you will need to log-in with the user ID and password that was emailed to you. Please remember to update your email address since your @psu.edu will expire 6 months after graduation.

Add On-Campus Recruiting - Add OCR to an existing account

Alumni are welcome to utilize on-campus recruiting. In general, we recommend OCR for use by alumni with less than two years professional experience. There is a $40 fee for alumni to access OCR and alumni must travel to the campus hosting the interview if selected for an on-campus interview by an employer.
