There are numerous ways to partner with Career Exploration & Student Employment to connect with IU Bloomington students. Explore opportunities to engage with our services in the list below.

A great way to connect with IU Bloomington students is to attend a fair. Career Exploration & Student Employment hosts the Fall Part-Time Jobs Fair and the Summer Jobs & Internships Fair. You can reserve your space by signing into your employer account.

Employers can play a significant role in helping young people discover the world of work. Job shadowing allows a student to spend a few hours (2-4) or a full day (6-8) with a professional working in the student's area of career interest. The student has the opportunity to experience first-hand what the job is really like and can establish the confidence to ask informed questions! This type of experiential learning can help students determine early on in their college career if their on the right path.

Informational interviews are a great way to help students understand the world of work, careers, and employers. Informational interviews involve allowing a student to interview you about your work and your own career journey. The time commitment is minimal, 30-45 minutes. Some of the information students want to learn about include: your career roadmap to your current position, a typical day for you, the joys and challenges of your job, any recommendations you may have for someone working to pursue employment in your field, and the culture of your organization.

Externships are training programs related to an area of academic or career interest that aim to give participants practical experiences in their area of interest. Externships are similar to internships, however, they tend to be shorter in duration, usually only a few days or a couple weeks, and involve a combination job shadowing, informational interviewing, and possibly a brief hands-on experience. The goal of an externship is to provide students with additional insights into a specific career. Career Exploration & Student Employment can connect you with top-notch students seeking externship experience.
