Career services are offices at IU that provide free personalized coaching and develop employer connections to help students transition between college and the workforce after graduation.  Coaches work with students every step of the way: to identify best fit majors and career paths, build experience, network, and help you land your first professional job! 

The Career Development Center is one of many different undergraduate career services offices on campus and works primarily with pre-major or University Division students. Once you certify into a school, you will work with your new career services office on building industry-specific employer relationships to prepare you for life after graduation.

Each student in University Division has a dedicated career coach. Use our career coach lookup tool to find out who yours is and get into contact with them.

First of all, congrats and welcome!  You will receive an email towards the beginning of the semester about meeting with your assigned career coach. It will include all the information you need to know!
