The UCS Office wants to congratulate our Seniors for graduating! We are so proud of your hard work and all your accomplishments. Go be great! We also applaud the rest of our Kelley student body for your continued growth and development as young professionals.
While Summer provides an opportunity to relax and recharge, it is also a time to engage in meaningful experiences that will boost your resume and entice recruiters in the future. Whether it be a Summer job, internship, job shadow, informational interview, volunteering, or some other opportunity, be intentional about having an experience that allows you to demonstrate transferable and relevant skills to future employers.
Want to meet with a UCS Career Coach to discuss how to take advantage of the Summer and make the most of your experiences? Our office is open all Summer! You can make an appointment via Handshake to meet virtually or in-person with a coach. Additionally, case interview preparation appointments can be scheduled by sending an email to KelleyUCS@iu.edu. Our peer coach drop-in hours will cease for the Summer and continue in the Fall.
*IMPORTANT HANDSHAKE NOTIFICATION*

Otherwise, your applications will fall into the “not meeting criteria” category. Please fill out this information accurately so that you’re not being incorrectly filtered from opportunities.
