Career Services

The staff of Career Services is committed to working with Indiana University Northwest students and all IU alumni in making informed academic and career decisions. The Office of Career Services enables students and alumni to make career decisions, investigate career options, take career inventories that will reflect their areas of interest, set appropriate goals, network, and create opportunities to meet those goals by using the services we offer.

Career Assessments

Identify your personal strengths and even a potential major through career counseling assessment inventories including the Vita Navis Super Strong Assessment.

Career Counseling and Planning

We provide career counseling sessions to assist you through your career development process, which may include assistance with choosing a specific career field of interest or major, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills (mock interviews), job search strategies, and exploring graduate schools (test dates and applications).
