IST Careers

Where do you see yourself after graduation?  A software developer, technology consultant, information system architect, to name a few?

Whatever your career goal is, Penn State Scranton's IST program can take you there.

The courses you'll study at IST and the skills you learn while working in teams, tackling real-life challenges, and gaining valuable experience while completing an internship (or two) will make you hugely marketable in the workforce. And we can help ensure that the organizations that you are best suited for find out about you!

Our IST Internship Coordinator is dedicated to helping you find the right full-time job or internship, or guiding you on the path to achieving success.

We cultivate relationships with regional employers and show them the value of hiring IST graduates. Being part of  Penn State also gives our students the opportunities to attend our college-exclusive career fairs where students meet with companies eager for a chance to interview and hire students with aspirations and skills you obtain in our program!
