Thank you for the support and investment in your student’s career development process. During this time in their lives, making decisions about life after college can seem overwhelming. At the Career Services office, we’re here to make the process a little easier by providing many opportunities to assist your student in their career exploration and guide them in the decision making process. We want to help your student get a head start on their journey. Along with our dedicated staff, we believe support and encouragement from parents and families is the perfect combination to help your student succeed and find a fulfilling career after graduation.
Career Services are available to students throughout their years at Iowa State. We encourage first year students to familiarize themselves with the staff and resources available in order to prepare for internship and job search seeking in subsequent years. While students are encouraged to use Career Services at any point during their college career, they will benefit most by progressive involvement from their first year through their senior year.
Family members can play an important role in their student’s career needs. You can start by referring them to Career Services. You can also help by supporting their career decisions and assisting them in identifying networking contacts.
