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!
