Welcome Undergraduate Students!

  • Graduation day is not the day you should start thinking about your career!

    The Career and Professional Development Center is committed to providing quality services and developmental opportunities that support the educational objectives of IUP. Our goal is to teach students, by providing coaching and support, how to become active participants in their own continuing career development.

    We’d love to meet with you about our services! To schedule an appointment with a Career and Professional Development Center staff member, please call the office at 724-357-2235 or email career-development@iup.edu.

    ​We are not able to schedule same-day appointments, but students can use our Drop-In Resume Review sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters.

    Please note: If you wish to schedule an appointment to have your resume reviewed, rather than use a Drop-In Resume Review session, please send download your resume to your Handshake account at least two business days in advance to facilitate the review process.
