Career Exploration and Job Placement

The College and Career Exploration Center (CCEC) is located in the Columbus Learning Center adjacent to the main IUPUC building. The CCEC provides career services to IUPUC students, assisting them in developing and implementing a sound career planning strategy. Students can receive help in choosing a major, obtain information on employment trends, and learn about career opportunities in local areas, the state of Indiana, and across the nation.

Students can meet with a career counselor for an individual career counseling appointment. Students have the opportunity to complete a career interest assessment such as the Strong Interest Inventory, the Self-Directed Search, or the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Workshops in choosing a major and job search strategies, including resume writing and interviewing techniques, are offered. A job fair with area employers will be held each year at the Learning Center for all IUPUC students.

Students who are undecided about their major are encouraged to visit the College and Career Exploration Center early in their first semester of college to start the self-assessment process and begin to research majors and careers.

The Center provides career resource materials in a non-circulating library. The CCEC staff can also direct students to appropriate online resources to research careers, salaries, and job opportunities.

The College and Career Exploration Center is located in the Learning Center in Suite 1200. For more information contact University College at (812) 348-7271.
