Welcome! We are the Career Services Council, a decentralized group of career development professionals representing a variety of schools and departments at IUPUI. Our goal is to help students, employers, and IUPUI faculty and staff connect with the appropriate resource for their current needs.

For Students and Alumni

Exploring Majors and Careers

Successfully choosing a major or career is a STEP-by-STEP process. If you understand and take these steps while utilizing your resources at IUPUI, you will be more likely to choose a major or career that suits you and meets your professional goals. Please meet with a Career Counselor at the Office of Academic and Career Development in University College.

Career Services in Your School

Many schools on campus provide career resources to their students for articulating and achieving career goals, obtaining experience through jobs and internships, and obtaining employment upon graduation. For the services available in each academic unit, please contact the career services office of your choice using School-Specific Career Services.


The RISE to the IUPUI Challenge initiative engages students more deeply in their learning and contributes to their intellectual and professional development in unique ways. Each undergraduate student is challenged to include at least two of the four RISE experiences—research, international, service learning, and experiential learning—into their degree programs. Click here for a listing of courses that will fulfill your RISE requirements.


The IU Alumni Association and some schools also provide career services to IUPUI, IU, and Purdue alums. For the services available in each academic unit, please visit School-Specific Career Services.

Student Employment

Students looking for on-campus or part-time employment while attending IUPUI can visit the Office of Student Employment for information regarding on-campus and part-time employment and experiential learning opportunities. Most on-campus positions are posted on JagJobs.

Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a form of financial aid that provides part time employment opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students based on need. FWS jobs allow students to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. Jobs are available on- and off-campus in a variety of positions.
