Career Advising

During this time of uncertainty, we realize many students have questions related to both employment and graduate school plans.  For others, class registration also brings questions about major and career decision-making.  We also know some are dealing with delayed, canceled or rescinded internship or full-time job offers.   

Please know that we are here to help! You can schedule a virtual career advising appointment via MyUI (select advising appointment tile > Pomerantz Career Center) for personalized conversation and assistance. 

If you have quick questions about resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn, or Handshake, consider scheduling an appointment with a knowledgeable Peer Career Advisor! Check out the Peer Advisors HERE

NOTE:  If you received your bachelor’s degree within the last 12 months, you retain access to individual career advising.  To schedule, please call our office at 319-335-1023, M-F between 8-5 PM.

 

Our team of Career Advisors and Peer Advisors are eager to assist as you explore and prepare for exciting career opportunities ahead. We know this process can feel overwhelming but we’re here to help. Starting early is important. Don’t wait until your senior year to visit us.
