Why Hire UI Students?

The Pomerantz Career Center is proud to be able to help employers and students connect to form meaningful and successful working arrangements—whether for internships or full-time positions. Choosing The University of Iowa to help fulfill your hiring needs connects you with qualified graduates from across campus.

We work with students and campus partners from the Tippie College of Business, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering, the College of Education and the College of Nursing. Students benefit from a well-rounded liberal arts education, combined with the knowledge and quality education that comes from attending a Big Ten university.

University of Iowa graduates are grounded academically, and employers tell us that they are grounded ethically. Graduates of The University of Iowa bring a good work ethic, values, and a strong academic background to each organization that hires them.

View the Office of the Registrar's new interactive student profile by report. This will give you detailed information on the demographics of the students at Iowa (including enrollment by program of study, veteran status, geographic distribution, minority status and international student status). 

For questions on undergraduate majors, minors, or certificates, please contact the Employer Relations Team at 319-335-1023.
