IUP CareerConnect!

Built from the ground up by career services professionals, IUP CareerConnect, powered by Symplicity, enhances how information is shared and processed both within IUP and between our students and employers.

Although we're still finalizing the full launch of the system, students, alumni, employers, and faculty/staff can now log in. Students will use the single sign-on they use when logging in to campus computers; alumni, employers , and faculty/staff will be required to complete a new user registration.

Please be patient with us as we continue to improve this service. Thank you! 

Drop-in Résumé Reviews - Fall and Spring Semesters

The Career Development Center hosts Drop-In Résumé Reviews every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:00–6:30 p.m. in Pratt 302 during the fall and spring semesters. Trained career coaches will be available to critique your résumé, so bring a draft copy and learn how to create a good résumé!
