IU Alumni Assoication: Professional Enrichment Opportunities
It’s graduation season and newly minted grads from all IU campuses are heading out into the career world armed with degrees to empower them on their new professional journey. Whether you are a twenty something millennial or a non-traditional aged student, synthesizing your collegiate experience into a career opportunity can be a daunting task.
If current employment trends continue, as many as half of this year’s graduates will struggle to find full-time jobs many months after earning their degree. That’s scary. We get it!
As part of the new Professional Enrichment offerings at IUAA, we’ve just launched a series of career coaching packages to help the newest members of our IU alumni family prosper in the career world.
We know the first steps on your professional path can be the toughest, whether you are looking for your dream job, or trying to navigate a new role. IUAA has your back!
We like to think of the new graduate coaching packages as career insurance – an opportunity to work with an expert coach from Career Consultants OI Partners, a global firm with more than 32 years of coaching experience. OI coaches fully understand the challenges new college graduates face. With over 200 offices globally, OI provides world-class, hands-on help in areas including: job search strategies, mastering interviewing, developing a networking strategy, and personal brand-building.
The packages were designed to meet the needs of our newest alumni from 0-3 years out to address their unique needs in the world of work. We want to help stock your professional toolbox with resources that will help you throughout your career life. In addition to the individualized career coaching sessions, you will get IU Alumni Association membership, an IU ALUMNI lapel pin, and two of my favorite books:
The Startup of You, by Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha
Me 2.0: Four Steps to Building Your Future, by Dan Schawbel
The coaching packages come beautifully wrapped and mailed via US Post for the ultimate gift experience. There are 4 and 8 coaching session options to choose from as well as annual and lifetime membership choices. Our goal is to help you set the stage for a lifetime of success.
The beauty of career coaching is that it can be done in-person, via phone, or SKYPE. OI Partners has expert coaches available around the world to serve our IU alumni population. Whether you are in Bloomington or Berlin, we’ve got your back!
