Build a successful future with the help of a career advisor.
What We Can Do for You
Here's how we can work together to find a career path that's right for you.
Choosing a Major
Illinois State has more than 160 academic programs. That's a lot of options, and also a little overwhelming. We'll help you narrow things down and find a program that makes you excited to go to class.
Understanding Your Career Options
Some degrees are pretty straightforward, others have lots of opportunities you might not even know about. Meet with us to discover all your options and possibilities once you earn a degree.
To get hired, you need experience. We know the ins and outs of finding jobs and internships. We can also tell you how to translate your classroom and student organization experiences into skills employers are looking for.
This is your life and your journey. If you don't like where your path is heading, we can help you find a career that supports the life you want.
