I can figure out Huskies Get Hired! as I go along. Why should I complete this course?

While it is possible you can figure out how to use Huskies Get Hired without attending an orientation, statistics show that students who complete orientation are more likely to get a job than those who don't. In a recent study, it was found that those who attended orientation were 36% more likely to earn at least one interview and 74% more likely to earn at least two interviews than those who skipped the Orientation. Further, those who don't attend orientation are sometimes not aware of very important NIU Campus Recruiting policies, such as the restrictions around canceling interviews.  The tutorial takes approximately 11 minutes.
