CyHire


Engineering Career Services, in cooperation with the other colleges at ISU, operates an online, career management system called CyHire. With this system, employers can post positions, schedule on-campus interviews and supply information that students may find useful when evaluating whether to apply for a particular position.  Students can easily search the employment opportunities and apply to positions of interest.  There are no fees associated with using the system.

Experiential Education; Internships & Co-ops


Co-ops and internships are periods of institutionally supervised, work experience that supplements formal academic classwork. Students are employed by industry and government organizations in positions related to their major field of study. Employers want to see experiential work experience on resumes (for some it is a requirement) and companies regularly use their internship/co-op programs as pipelines for post graduate career opportunities.

Student and Employer networking at a career fair

Career Fair


Face-to-face networking is one of the most effective recruiting methods. Whether you are a student looking for an internship, co-op, post-graduate position, or networking for the future. Or an employer looking to hire for these positions. You don’t want to miss these opportunities!

Our College of Engineering career fairs are among the largest in the country. Hundreds of employers and thousands of great students will be participating in the fair!
