The Career Development Center works in collaboration with the University and community constituents to help students develop the professional skills needed to achieve career success.
The Center educates students by providing career counseling, career coaching, job, internship and graduate school preparation as well as employment and mentoring connections.
Students are empowered to define and achieve their personal, academic and career goals.
Many local and regional employers contact our office for their hiring needs. These listings can be viewed on our homepage at the University's website, under WP Job Connect, and also in the Career Library. Seniors, remember to pick up your free copy of the "Job Choices" - either the Business or Science and Technology edition - for job listings from companies across the nation.
It is highly recommended that students open a WP Job Connect account. By doing so this on-line service will enable you to create a professional quality resume and register with the Career Center for computerized job referral.
Personalized Career Guidance
Unsure about what types of jobs your major qualifies you for? Don't know where or how to look for a job? Getting interviews, but no offers? Professional counselors will schedule day or evening appointments to help you with decision-making and career-pathing, resume writing, interview skills, strategies to penetrate the job market and much more.
Underclassmen, in addition to seniors, are encouraged to attend these campus events to network and explore a wide variety of current and potential employment opportunities. Check our homepage, bulletin boards and public relations materials for programs and dates, including graduate school and job fairs at other locations.
