Career Centers

Start early at the Career Development Center

Not sure what career is right for you? The Career Development Center (CDC) will help you understand who you are, what you value, and what you want out of your IU education and life. You’ll start an easy-to-follow career exploration process that will help you get meaningful career experience your first year here (even if you don’t have a career in mind).

Then the CDC will help you determine what career path is right for you, and which of IU’s other career centers can give you the greatest career connections. Later, if you want to get additional help or to explore new interests, come back to the CDC. IU’s career advisors are always here for you, even after your first year.
