American Public University System Launches Online Job-Search Platform to Help Over 182,000 Students and Alumni Pursue their Purpose

Innovative, Custom-Built APUS CareerLink Features Thousands of Openings for Entry-Level to Highly Specialized Positions

In today’s competitive job market with historically high unemployment due to COVID-19, millions of candidates are searching for work, yet in many professions – including nursing, public health and cybersecurity – the need for skilled professionals far outweighs the current pipeline of applicants. Recognizing this opportunity, American Public University System (APUS) has launched APUS CareerLink, an innovative, custom-built online resource designed specifically for our 100,000-plus alumni and 82,000 students, approximately 88 percent of whom are working professionals.

APUS CareerLink showcases curated jobs from vetted employers who see value in the many skills that American Military University and American Public University students and graduates possess, such as leadership, perseverance, problem-solving and collaboration. The platform features a range of enriching and rewarding job openings nationwide across several different experience levels and industries.

“APUS is fully committed to driving favorable student outcomes, and we want our students and alumni to know they are not in this alone,” said Christine Muncy, Associate Vice President, Career Services for APUS. “While there are many resources already in the market, our dynamic platform offers a unique, and powerful tool that helps match employers with a deep pool of qualified and highly skilled professionals.”

APUS CareerLink, which features an easy-to-navigate interface that is accessible from a student’s e-campus, enables users to build profiles that can be viewed by select recruiters — the same ones they may meet at APUS virtual career events. Jobs can be searched based on location, degree program, certifications and security clearances.

“Our hope with developing APUS CareerLink was to help bridge the gap between students and the ever-changing job market, and we know every possible resource can make a difference,” said Muhammad Younas, CEO of vFairs, which APUS chose to help create the online resource. “It’s always exciting for us to push our platform’s capabilities forward, and we’re honored to work with APUS to best serve the needs of both students and alumni.
