Interested in interviewing with Esri recruiters? Applications for full-time positions will run through the University Career Services' Nittany Lion Career Network, and applications for internships will run through the College of Engineering's eCareer system. Both systems use the same software, but they are not connected and thus require separate registration and login.  You'll register (and later log in) using your PSU access ID, set up a profile, and upload a résumé and cover letter. I know that résumés for eCareer are reviewed before they're posted; not sure about NLCN. Once your documents are approved and ready to go, search for "Esri" under the Jobs tab. 

Apply for internships via eCareer -
student login:
* note: résumés uploaded to eCareer will be reviewed for format! Make sure you include an objective (in this case, "seeking summer internship" will do - they want to know if you're looking for full-time, internship, or co-op position (the notes say "strongly recommended," but I believe they reject anything without an objective. Make sure that the document you upload does not have any blank pages--that's also grounds for rejection. Be sure to follow the "Résumé Requirements for eCareer" listed on the eCareer info page (first URL above)

Apply for full-time positions via Nittany Lion Career Network -
student login:
*note: It looks like NLCN doesn't require a cover letter. There is a Notes field under the button for attaching your résumé. I recommend pasting a cover letter there (compose elsewhere so you can spell-check!)

Applications must be received no later than Wednesday, February 10.
