New Alumni Users
For alumni who have never held a Nittany Lion Alumni Recruiting account. You can request an account by entering your Friends of Penn State (FPS) user ID and password.*
*If you graduated after May 2004, your FPS account is your PSU Access Account user ID (xyz123) and password. All other graduates must request a FPS account.
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 (OCR)
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.
