Career Resource Center

A Career Resource Center is located on both the Estherville and Emmetsburg campuses.  
Services are also available to students attending Iowa Lakes campuses in Spirit Lake, Spencer and Algona.  
Appointments may be made in advance or drop-in appointments are also possible if the Career Center Coordinator is available.
In today's job market, a college degree does not guarantee employment. The Career Resource Center will partner with you to facilitate the career planning and employment process.
As a student, your attitude, initiative, grades, internship experiences, volunteer services and willingness to travel and relocate are just a few of the factors determining employment success.
