Finding one’s career path in college is not easy — and navigating that path in a way that maximizes one’s credentials for prospective employers is more difficult still.
That said, IUPUI offers three opportunities in the coming week for students to learn more about career paths, where their planned or ongoing studies fit within that path and new career options that may have gone unnoticed before.
IUPUI Fall Career Week (Sept. 26-30)
Throughout all of next week, Fall Career Week will offer a variety of sessions that allow IUPUI students to learn more about their majors, career paths, job searching, networking and other skills. Some sessions focus on specific degrees or occupations, while others are more general.

Health and Life Science Experience Expo (Sept. 27)
This event offers focused opportunity for pre-health students to explore opportunities to gain experience through health-related academic programs, student organizations and community partners.
Organizers caution that “this is not a career fair,” but a venue where students can learn about various health care careers and network with organization that offer volunteer and internship opportunities.
Career Connection STEM Career Fair (Sept. 29)
More than ever, Indiana needs more college graduates with STEM-related skills (science, technology, engineering and math). This event — organized by IU’s School of Informatics, the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology and the Purdue School of Science — offers numerous opportunities for students to meet prospective employers and discuss internship, co-op and full-time career opportunities.
This is a recruitment event, so students are urged to research their companies and topics of potential discussion, dress professionally (business formal) and bring several copies of resumes. Last year’s event hosted 86 companies, with more than 700 students in attendance.
This event takes place Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., again at Campus Center 450. For more information, click here.
