Career and Professional Development Center

The Career and Professional Development Center offers a vast array of services for career-oriented students and graduates. Our goal is to help students to become more confident in their professional development and networking abilities so they can make informed decisions about graduate schools and career opportunities.

In college you spend a lot of time trailblazing and learning new things. It can be totally overwhelming, but there is a whole community willing to help. For me, the IUP Career and Professional Development Center was integral in my success. I got my first professional headshot, honed my interview skills, and practiced networking in many different situations. Without the career center, my first real interview would have been a lot scarier and my LinkedIn profile would be lackluster.

A few years into my career, I now review resumes and interview candidates. I can vouch that recruiters only spend mere seconds on each resume. You may be great in person, but we have to look at a lot of applications, and one small error could mean you don’t make the cut. Getting a job and learning to be professional takes time, so why not go to the experts for help?
