Throughout their IYRS experience, students are inspired and guided towards a fulfilling and meaningful career by building an in-demand skill-set. Our curricula are specifically designed based on fulfilling the needs of the industry and closing the skills gap, and our IYRS externship program requires real-world application of a student’s education.
Our career development team works one-on-one with each student to help establish individual goals and a plan to achieve them.
Students spend a considerable amount of time with a career development team dedicated to helping students identify strategies that can lead to successful completion of an externship and graduation.
Career development team members will help students:
• Identify externship opportunities
• Develop job search skills
• Explore career opportunities
• Learn career & industry research methods
• Write a resume
• Develop interview skills
• Develop critical networking skills
IYRS students come from all different backgrounds and walks of life, and our staff works with students to help identify a path to a rewarding career!
