Referring Employers & Recruiting Organizations
We are always open to connecting with organizations interested in recruiting at William Paterson University for internships and job opportunities. Our team can support your department by consulting employers to discuss recruitment at WP and outreach to companies that may be relevant for your students.
Encourage your students to connect with their Career Coach! All students will be able to identify their Career Coach on their success team on Navigate! For a list of our Career Staff and the Communities they service, visit our Career Communities Hub.
We recommend a student meet with their Career Coach at least once per academic year. Some students will need to set up recurring appointments based on their career goals and the current career stage they are working through.
Students can schedule appointments with their career coach on Navigate, or they can visit the Career Center in UC 301 or email us at CareerDevelopment@wpunj.edu
When to Refer Students
We know that career conversations with students can happen anywhere and everywhere! Our "Career Everywhere" philosophy aims to provide all students access and equity to career development. Our goal is to ensure they build their career readiness skills and acquire the tools and resources needed for post-graduation success.
Students seek career advice from those they know and trust. Our office wants to support you as a part of this critical process and recognize you as a partner of the WP Career Center. As a member of our Career Champions community, you'll have the opportunity to receive training, join discussions, and brainstorm about career issues as they relate to the William Paterson Community.
