Indiana Wesleyan University is proud to announce it has a 94 percent career outcomes rate for students who utilize the Life Calling & Career Development office. This department provides students with several workshops and services helpful to academic and professional development. Services include:
  • CliftonStrengths Assessment Debrief
  • Myers-Briggs Debrief
  • Life Coaching
  • Goal Setting
  • Resume & Cover Letter Development
  • Graduate School Application Help
  • Job Search Support
  • Internship Placement
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Professional Etiquette Dinner
  • Mock Interviews
  • Personal Branding
  • ePortfolio Development
  • Negotiating a Job Offer  
“Students who engage in our Life Calling or Career Development services have a stronger self-awareness and ability to speak about their strengths in an interview and can provide a quality resume, LinkedIN profile and market themselves better to employers,” said Carol Brown, associate dean, Life Calling and Career Development. “It pays off!”
 
Additionally, IWU boasts a 100 percent career outcomes rate when students participate in Career Development’s Accelerate Indiana Internship Program during college. The program allows students the unique opportunity to intern at local Indiana businesses. Many employers take on interns with the hopes of turning them into a full-time employee.
 
For the average IWU student, regardless of internship participation, the University has an 89 percent career outcomes rate, which sits above the national average of 82 percent.
 
A “career outcomes rate” measures those graduates who fall into one of the following five categories: employed full time, employed part time, volunteer service, military service or continuing education. The data presented resulted from data collected from the IWU Class of 2017.
