Online Job Postings
Organizations recruiting Iowa State students for professional job or internship opportunities post the positions on CyHire (formerly ISU CMS). You can search positions by college or major, upload your resume, view career fair information, and more. Explore all features in the system and be sure to visit the site frequently to see new listings.
To access the system:
You may apply to some job postings or interview schedules through the system. To qualify for employment and interviews, you must update your student profile and upload a resume. Under "profile," complete your degree level, work authorization and applicant type. Add your resume under "documents."
Upload your PDF resume or your resume will be converted to PDF format with a file size limited to 300 KB. Please review the conversion to make sure it is error-free and has the appearance you want.
Gaining practical work experience in your field while a student, combined with solid academic preparation, is the key for successful career development. Internships are highly regarded by employers and give students the advantage necessary to compete for entry-level positions. Visit CyHire weekly for current opportunities. You may also want to check "job leads" (an archive of previous postings) for additional possibilities.
