Undergraduate Career Services
You have goals, and we are here to help you achieve them. The Ivy College of Business Career Services team helps you prepare for lifelong career success through customized coaching, competency-focused teaching, experience-based learning, and connectivity with industry.
Navigate your career path
Informational guides and online tools are available to help you explore majors and careers, build your professional network, search for internships and jobs, craft and polish application materials, establish your online presence, prepare for interviews, evaluate offers, and more. It is never too early – or late – too get started.
Develop leadership skills
Deepen your connection to Ivy through the Gerdin Leaders Academy (GLA). Engage in opportunities aimed at developing the professional skills employers are seeking.
Build confidence in the classroom
Engage with our team through two Ivy courses. Uncover career options through BUSAD 105: Exploration of Majors & Careers in Business. Identify your unique strengths and how to thrive professionally in the workforce through BUSAD 203: Professional Development in Business.
Our career events help you build relationships with employers, learn about internships and full-time employment opportunities, and practice professional communication and networking skills. Our offerings include large-scale career fairs, major-specific networking events, industry speakers, practice interviews, information sessions, and more.
Ivy CYning Day
Business, Industry and Technology Career Fair
At Ivy, 96 percent of undergraduates are engaged within six months of graduation (employed professionally, graduate school, additional education, and temporary employment/seeking permanent employment).
Our Annual Report highlights employment outcomes, experiential education statistics, and career event participation.
Another helpful tool is Who Went Where which is a report comprised of first destination data from Ivy College of Business graduates that has been sorted by major.
Our support for Ivy students extends beyond graduation. You are eligible to use the services offered through our Business Career Services. As an alumni, you can schedule an appointment through email or by calling 515-294-2542.
