Faculty members are essential in facilitating career and graduate school success for students. The Office of Career Development works closely with faculty to help encourage professional growth in our students.
Please refer them to our office. We can assist students with career counseling, which may include having them take a career assessment. We also have a resource library with career and graduate school materials. In addition, we can help students in all majors strategize their internship and job search. Our office posts internships and job opportunities in our Peacock Career Portal. A Student Help Sheet is available to assist students with the Peacock Career Portal login.
We are also available to attend a Division and/or Department meeting to talk about our services, answer questions, or brainstorm ideas for providing high-quality services to our students. As you plan career-related events for your majors and minors, please let us know about them. We would be happy to help you publicize them or, if you wish, participate in them with you.
Please let us know how we can assist you and your course instruction. We are available to complement and enhance your courses and curriculum offered to UIU students. As career development professionals, we consistently form relationships with recruiters, attend/present at conferences, and engage in professional workforce situations to provide relevant and updated career resources and services to the Upper Iowa University community. Connect with us by phone, 563-425-5229 (ext. 5229), email firstname.lastname@example.org, or via social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest or Twitter group pages). We are also available to answer any of your questions and provide additional assistance.
