CDSlink Welcomes NJIT Employers and Nonprofit Agencies

NACElink Network, the result of an alliance among the National Association of Colleges and Employers, DirectEmployers Association, and Symplicity Corporation, is a national recruiting network and suite of web-based recruiting and career services automation tools serving the needs of colleges, employers and job candidates.


I currently have a job posted at NJIT.  Do I have to do anything to keep it active?

All currently active jobs have been transferred into our new system at NJIT called CDSlink.  We encourage you to log in to review the posting(s) and familiarize yourself with the system.  The expiration date of your current posting will remain the same as it appeared in our former system, CDS On-line.  Your active jobs will continue to be viewed by NJIT students and graduates, and you will continue to receive resumes of qualified candidates as we transition to CDSlink.

I do not have any current postings but anticipate openings in my firm.  What do I need to know?

Now is a good time to activate and update your account. This will ensure that the information listed for your organization is accurate. It will also reduce delays in having your job openings activated when you are ready to post them.  Log on to https://njit-csm.symplicity.com/employers/ 

I don’t have any upcoming needs.  Do I need to do anything now?

We encourage you to log in with the welcome email information to activate your account in CDSlink.
You will learn the advantages of our new system and recruit current students, recent graduates and alumni to your organization.

Is there a fee for your services?

No, NJIT’s CDS will continue to post jobs, internships, co-ops at no charge to employers.  As with our previous system, there is a fee to post jobs simultaneously to multiple schools.

If I have questions, whom do I call?

NJIT’s CDS staff members are available at 973-596-3227 or via email at cdsjobs@njit.edu

Community Service

"If you really want to stand out from the crowd and be recognized by society, then it is the quality of contribution which you make to others that counts.”  Wynona Lipman, Former NJ State Senator

At NJIT, we are committed to fostering opportunities for students to share their skills, talents and enthusiasm through service for the benefit of our communities.  Through the civic engagement programs, our students have become an invaluable resource of both technical and non-technical help for local and regional agencies.  We link students, alumni, faculty, and staff directly to community service activities with non-profit organizations located in and around Newark and throughout the state of New Jersey.
