RMI Student Resource Center

RMI students can utilize their own Resource Center in Room S230 PBB. Two computers, a scanner, and fax machine are available for your use to update your resume or fax applications to employers. Study guides are available for students pursuing Iowa licensure in Life and Health or Property and Casualty. These study guides must be used in the office and cannot be checked out.

Pomerantz Career Center—www.careers.uiowa.edu

All RMI students are encouraged to register on the Pomerantz Career Center HireaHawk.com site. You can submit and store resumes and cover letters, search and apply for jobs and internships, and sign up for interviews all in one place. Employers from around the country post positions for all majors. You can also sign up for mock interviews and register your internship for 0 credit hours and transcript notation. To connect with alumni professionals, search our ICE-Net database in HireaHawk.com. Vaughan Institute events, field trips, internships, employer interviews, and a resume book are also listed on HireaHawk.com. 

Judith R. Frank Business Communications Center—tippie.uiowa.edu/bizcomm

We’ve heard from employers that students need to work on their business communication skills (writing and presentation skills). Being able to craft your ideas in a concise and convincing way will prove to be beneficial. The center’s tutors work with students on papers and presentations, whether it is an individual or group project.
