NOTE TO RECRUITERS:
all alumni are referred to two primary places for job postings - GoldPASS and our group on LinkedIn. Please submit your postings to those sites. When requesting to join the LinkedIn group, please let the manager know that you are a recruiter. There is no charge for either of these posting methods.

GoldPASS
GoldPASS
is the U of M's online database to help connect students and alumni with employers, volunteer organizations and internships across the country.
  • If you have an active University Internet ID (x.500) and password, you should be able to login immediately.
  • If you do not know or remember your Internet ID or password, please contact the Helpline at 612.301.4357.
  • If your Internet ID does not allow you access to GoldPASS, call the career center at your college or school.

If you continue to have difficulty, you are welcome to contact Jon Ruzek at ruzek010@umn.edu or 612.301-1477
