Career Advantage Program
The Career Advantage Program (CAP) is a set of career-planning courses and tools—including AIU's Employer Network—designed to help graduates and current students develop their professional portfolio and marketability. From connecting you with relevant local job listings to helping you develop a comprehensive job search strategy, our CAP is at the heart of our commitment to act as a long-term career partner for our students.
AIU Employer Network
Our Employer Network is an online resource that helps connect you with a vast array of businesses and prospective employers with whom AIU has formed local partnerships. Powered by Career Builder, the Employer Network not only allows you to search for job listings in your area but also to create a personal job search profile and receive email updates about relevant positions.
Our dedication to our students doesn't end after graduation. That's why we offer ongoing career counseling to help alumni navigate the job market. In addition to continued access to our Employer Network and professional Career Coaches, we can help you connect with other alumni, shape and develop your professional brand, and adapt in response to changes in the industry and your field.
Our Career Services department can help you prepare job application materials like a resume and cover letter when the time comes. Whether you need help creating your first resume, shaping your cover letter for specific positions, or tailoring job application materials to fit a new direction in your career, our Certified Professional Resume Writers will provide personalized feedback and advice. We can help you with specific resume conventions in your field and even provide some convenient templates to get you started.
Personalized Career Coaching
Our professional Career Coaches are available for one-on-one career counseling no matter where you're at in your job search, whether you're starting to prepare for the job market after graduation, trying to get an early start midway through your degree program, or as an alumni making a career change.
We can do more than just help you apply for jobs, though. Our Career Coaches can also walk you through the process of creating a professional brand as well as provide guidance on how to effectively network within your field.
