Ensuring Your Future
The College guarantees that any CASNR graduate who completes the Ensuring Your Future program and actively seeks employment will receive at least one job offer relevant to his or her academic program within the first six months after graduation. If you do not receive at least one employment offer, the College will pay for any course that is documented by an employer who interviewed you and found your degree program lacking critical elements. Career Services will administer an active resumé referral service, post job openings, provide help with resumé preparation, and prepare you for interviews with employers who are recruiting UNL students.
