LUNetwork – Job Database
Liberty University’s exclusive employer relationship database, LUNetwork is the on-line database that has thousands of employers looking for Liberty students, recent graduates, and alumni. Employers from all over the country (and world) are purposefully posting positions looking for Liberty talent. Postings include internships and full time positions for both new graduates and seasoned professionals. Students and alumni can post their resume and search the database for positions all over the world. Residential and online students and alumni are eligible to utilize LUNetwork for life.
All students are encouraged to complete an internship to assist with career planning and gain practical experience within their chosen field of study. Internships are available in major cities all across the country, including Washington DC, New York City, Chicago, Orlando, and many more. Students may earn from one to six (in some cases nine) semester hours of credit. Many majors require at least three credits. All applicants for credit internships, which are listed in the University’s Catalog, are processed through the student’s academic department Faculty Internship Advisor (FIA). Contact your department to identify your FIA.
The Career Center also provides a special internship opportunity through the Washington Fellowship (WF). This program allows students to live and work in Washington D.C. where they are placed in internships relevant to their career or academic interests. Students in the WF earn six credits of internship while taking six online credits. Additional leadership and professional development training are also available to participants.
