Below are some of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) that students encounter:




Question: I'm a new student at Minnesota State University, Mankato. How do I get a MavJobs account?


Answer: First you'll need to register for classes. After you register, the system will automatically create a MavJobs account for you, and you will receive a welcome email in your new mailbox letting you know that your account is ready.  This process can take up to 5 business days. If you have not received the welcome email from MavJobs within 5 business days, please contact our office at or 507-389-6061.


Question: I'm an Alumni at Minnesota State University, Mankato. How do I get a MavJobs account? 


Answer: Alumni may register for a MavJobs account here. 


Question: I don't have a MavJobs account yet (because I won't register for classes until later in the year). How do I find a job in the meantime?


Answer: Check out the additional job search resources here on the CDC's Part-Time Jobs page. We also re-post and re-tweet job and internship opportunities to our Facebook and Twitter accounts, so make sure and follow us there as well!
