Services During CoVID-19 Social Distancing Period

Engineering Career Services continues to provide services to students, alumni and employers during the period of social distancing aimed at slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  While we are doing our part by not participating in face-to-face meetings, we continue to interact with all of our customers via email, phone, and video conferencing.  We are also expanding our efforts to help job seekers and employers connect by assembling resume books and facilitating interviews via video conferencing.  See the following for more specific information:

Students and Alumni:

  • Career Advising:  Schedule career advising appointments through CyHire or by emailing ecs@iastate.edu.
  • Online Career Prep Learning: On-demand career preparation information can be found in the student area of this website and through the Engineering Career Prep Course in Canvas.  If you do not see this course on your Canvas dashboard or have any questions, email or call us.

Employers:

  • Job Postings: Please continue to post employment opportunities through your CyHire account.  If you don’t currently have a CyHire account, you can create one and post positions free of charge (see the CyHire link in the menu)
