In assisting students with preparation for the job campaign, the Career Planning and Placement Center provides the opportunity to open and maintain a credential file; helps construct an effective resume, and cover and follow-up letters; assists with preparation for the professional interview experience; and offers a wide range of weekly career-related workshops. The Center maintains a comprehensive Career Resource/Video library, fosters employer contacts, and keeps students informed of current job opportunities through a weekly vacancy bulletin and individual announcements.
The Center coordinates employer on-campus interviews, develops off-campus interview opportunities, provides a resume referral system, and promotes and maintains a positive working relationship between students and prospective employers. The staff seeks to meet recruiter needs by helping students acquire knowledge of what various careers require and offer, gain insight into employer expectations, and develop realistic views of the world of work in today's employment arena.
Students enrolled in their senior academic year (within one year of expected graduation) may register with the Center to gain several additional benefits. These include: entitling them to participate in on-campus interviews; receiving the weekly vacancy bulletin; having their resumes referred to employers for specific positions; receiving individualized notices of off-campus employment opportunities; and having five free sets of credentials mailed. Commencing with the sixth set of credentials requested, a fee of $2 is charged for each subsequent mailing.
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 Reactivating Files.
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.
Post-graduate Degree Candidates.
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.
