Apply for Jobs, Interviews, and Network with Career Mentors through CougarJobLink!

CougarJobLink is the software system used by the Career Center to connect our graduating seniors to jobs, on-campus interview opportunities and alumni career mentors. By registering on CougarJobLink, you will be able to benefit from:

  • • Job listings available via the web 24/7
  • • Have new jobs relating to your interests automatically emailed to you by using the Saved Search feature
  • • Access to on-campus interviews, in which employers come to campus to interview upcoming graduates for full-time jobs

In the near future, you will no longer be able to log into CougarJobLink using MyCharleston. When that occurs, you can still use CougarJobLink, but you'll need to log in using the Alumni Portal:

1. Go to the Career Center homepage (
2. Find the CougarJobLink icon in the middle of the page; click on the Alumni link beside the icon
3. Enter your full, campus issued email address in the Username field
4. Click on "Retrieve My Password"

You will be sent your password for CougarJobLink. Then return to the Alumni portal page, enter your Username and Password, and continue using CougarJobLink!
