Some universities have one career center for all students. Others have multiple career centers in various schools. We have both—and you get a big advantage.
Two tiers of career services help you find your passion and make it happen
Start at the IU Career Development Center (CDC), which will help you identify your ideal career path. Then tap into the specialized expertise and connections in the career center at your IU school.
The services at our career centers—including one-on-one career advising, for-credit career and internship courses, and help with resumes and cover letters—will take the mystery out of your career preparation and help you shine in employers’ eyes.
Start early at the Career Development Center (CDC)
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.Learn more about career coaching
After the CDC: a specialized career center in your IU school
The Career Development Center is just the beginning. After you are admitted into your school or college, you’ll spend the rest of your time at IU with one of our 12 other career centers—each of which specializes in careers tied to its school’s majors.
A dedicated career expert will help you land the job that’s right for you. You’ll have opportunities to make connections with employers right here on campus, and to receive career experience that shines on your resume, in interviews, and most of all, in a workplace that values what you bring to the table.See the full list of IU career centers
