About Career Services

Career Services is focused on connecting students to opportunities so they are active and engaged, leading to career readiness. This is done through a robust internship program, engaging students with leadership opportunities, student employment, and other opportunities for students to be active in preparing for the world of work.  Much of the connectedness comes from a strong employer portfolio that includes connection to over 65,000 alumni, thousands of employers, recruiting events, and an average of over 30,000 unique opportunities available annually to UNI's 10,500 students.
