Post-Graduation Plans

You've landed the job and are ready to leave campus. As you transition away from life as an undergraduate student, there is still plenty you can do to build your career and stay connected with Penn State.

IST Post-Graduation Survey

The IST Post-Graduation Survey is a confidential and systemized methodology for collecting valuable employment data. This information is highly beneficial for students who are engaging in the job search process and those who are negotiating a starting salary. It is also valuable to the college and to the University as a whole. Every IST student should complete the survey prior to graduation, preferably after they have accepted an offer of employment or entrance to graduate school.

IST Post-Graduation Survey

Close to graduation, you will be receiving a request to take the Post-Graduation Survey from the IST Career Solutions team. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation!

If you're still seeking full-time employment, review our job search strategies or schedule an appointment with a career coach for assistance.
