For this week’s post, I will answer two commonly asked questions related to Beaver JobNet, Oregon State University’s job and internship database system. If you are an OSU student or alum and have not used Beaver JobNet, we highly encourage you to check it out since there are many jobs and internships posted by employers seeking Beavers!
Question: I am trying to login to the Beaver JobNet site in preparation for my arrival at OSU in the fall. I have been using my ONID username and password and each time it takes me to a registration page where I fill in my address and graduation information. Once I hit submit, it just takes me back to the login page again. I did this several times and still haven’t been able to access the site. Is there a step I am missing? And how do I get past the registration page?
This is happening because you currently do not have an account in Beaver JobNet. We can get you set up with an account, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and in the email provide your full name (first, middle, last), student ID# and your ONID email address, and she would be happy to create an account for you.
Question: Can I use my OSU GPA instead of the overall GPA on Beaver JobNet?
Beaver JobNet uses the overall GPA as employers want the more complete picture of the applicant. If there is additional information you want to provide for the employer to consider, you can contact them outside of Beaver JobNet and present it for their consideration. If the contact information is not visible on the job posting, it is because they have elected not to be contacted directly, only through the application means they have specified. Also, we encourage you to upload a resume and “opt-in” to having it available for approved employers to view. Your resume is a great place to showcase only the GPA you want highlighted, whether that be just your OSU GPA, your major’s GPA (not including Bac. Core), etc.
If you have any other questions regarding Beaver JobNet or other career related topics, please contact us at email@example.com or come on by Monday-Thursday between 1-4pm and we can answer any questions and help you out. We are located in the basement of the Kerr Administration Building, B008.
