Career Related Events
The Career Development Center hosts several Career events throughout the year to assist students in gaining knowledge about the world of work in their field of interest. Faculty, staff, and alumni often serve as panelists for some of these events. Please check our events page for a complete listing of the upcoming events at the Center.
Encouraging your students' participation in any of the career related events offered by the Career Development Center reinforces the importance to students to be prepared for their future careers. Advertising the upcoming events in your classes is a great way to inform your students of these important professional development experiences. If you would like for a staff member to give a brief overview of services and events at the center, please visit our page devoted to presentations. Here's a sampling of our events:
- Information Sessions: Representatives from companies and organizations interested in recruiting IU students present information sessions to give students more information about their company and to inform students of potential job and internship possibilities.
- On Campus Interviews: Employers from around the country conduct on-campus interviews to bring IU students to work for their organizations.
- Networking Nights: Students who attend these events at the DeVault Alumni Center hear from a panel of employers in a specific industry and learn the importance and value in making connection and developing their networking skills.
- Global Careers: A monthly series hosted at the Career Development Center that gives students the opportunity to learn about working internationally.
- ArtWORKS: An event series focused on creative careers, which provides students the opportunity to learn more about the creative sector; to seek advice from industry professionals; and to network with individuals in various creative fields.
- Career Fairs: One of the best ways for students to put their skills into action is to attend one of the many Career Fairs offered throughout the year. Students who attend these fairs can submit a resume to employers, make contacts to add to their network, and find out what companies are hiring in their industry. Career fairs often include over 50 employers seeking to fill part-time, full-time, and internships positions.
