IAU’s Career Services consists of assisting students with resume writing, tips and interview techniques, advising of job openings and professional development workshops.
IAU’s programs do not prepare graduates for a specific occupation or employment and does not provide formal career planning services. All students are encouraged to speak with the staff, faculty, and instructors regarding career and professional planning. IAU will provide a list of employers who have contacted the University offering employment opportunities.
Students can find new employment opportunities on IAU’s Job Openings Page.
Utilizing these tools can help you target the specific position, work environment that best suits you. These sites provide tests and assessment tools to make career searching more productive. Each of the sites are free to use without obligation to sign-up for the service.
