The Career Planning and Placement Center provides career guidance to students and alumni in both individual and group settings. This centralized student service program seeks to enhance the student's educational experience by promoting the development and implementation of career plans and reflects the institution's continuing concern for the development of its graduates.
In assisting the student with preparation for the job campaign, the Career Planning and Placement Center provides the opportunity to develop a credential file including references, helps construct an effective resume and cover letter, and assists with preparation for the interview experience. The office maintains a comprehensive career resource library, fosters employer contacts, and keeps students informed of current job opportunities in their chosen fields.
The office coordinates employer on-campus interviews, develops off-campus interview opportunities, and promotes and maintains a positive relationship between students and prospective employers in business, industry, education and government. The staff seeks to meet recruiter needs by helping students acquire knowledge of what various careers have to offer, gain insight into recruiter expectations, and develop realistic views of the world of work.
The Career Planning and Placement Center continually strives to assist the student in all aspects of preparing for a career throughout the college years. In addition, some assistance is provided to alumni in redirecting professional careers and related concerns.

Students registering with the Career Planning and Placement Center during a given academic year (August to August of the following year) will be considered as new registrants. During that year, they will be entitled to have five free sets of credentials mailed, participate in on-campus interviews, and receive the weekly vacancy bulletin and individualized notices of off campus employment opportunities in their fields. Commencing with the sixth set of credentials requested, a fee of $2 will be charged for each subsequent mailing.
Alumni wishing to reactivate their credential files will be charged a fee of $30. This fee will entitle them to receive the weekly vacancy bulletin and individualized notices of employment openings in their fields, participate in on-campus interviews, and request the mailing of five free sets of their credentials for a period of one academic year (August to August of the following year). If the reactivating alumnus requests more than five sets of credentials be mailed during a given academic year, an additional $2 fee will be charged for each subsequent mailing.
An ISU alumnus who will graduate with a post-graduate degree from ISU will not be required to pay a fee to reactivate the credential file for a period of one year. However, if a post-graduate degree is earned from another institution a reactivation fee of $30 will be charged.
