The IU Southeast Career Development Center is committed to serving students with disabilities in seeking employment opportunities, including part-time, full-time and internship opportunities.

Our services include resume reviews, practice interviewing and on-going career coaching. We can also assist with questions on disclosure, and identifying employers who are considered disability-friendly. We are able to offer these services through partnerships with local organizations and employers seeking talent.
