If you are in need of professional or business casual attire, we have a list of low or no-cost clothing options available. Including the ISU Pop-Up Shop.

  • Important Special Note

    Please do not accept an offer of employment until you are ready to reject all future offers.  Employers are required to give you at least two weeks to consider offers of employment so that you can participate in as much of the recruiting season as possible.  Reneging on an employment commitment is not tolerated at ISU.  If you are being pressured to make a quick decision, please inform Engineering Career Services.
