How do I participate in CareerBound?

For the 2021-2022 academic year, all incoming 1st year students are automatically enrolled in CareerBound. We will be rolling the program out to additional cohorts as quickly as we can, so stay connected to learn more and get involved!

For those of you who are in this category, you should have received a link to download the smartphone app (or access the program through the web portal).  (Here's a video to walk you through the process, or click one of the links below!)

 Once you've activated your account with your Purdue email address, you're in!  You'll want to set up your profile and your preferences.  We have help for that, too!

You'll also have opportunities throughout the school year to take a personalized assessment looking at your proficiency in each of the eight (8) competencies identified by employers as "highly desireable". Using those results, we will work with you to develop a customized professional development plan designed to meet your career-readiness goals.  These surveys also ask for feedback from an external evaluator like a supervisor, manager, instructor, coach, or other professional connection.  The assements take about 10 minutes to complete and are offered during the following time frames:

  • At the start of the school year
  • The last three weeks of the Fall Semester
  • The last three weeks of the Spring Semester

Have more questions?  Email us at careerbound@purdue.edu and we'll be happy to help you on your journey to Land the Job - Launch Your Career!
