Career Design for Students

Your career planning starts now.

At William Peace University Career Development is a lifelong process that is influenced by many factors, including interests, talents, and values. Career counselors in the Career Design Center help WPU students and alumni know and understand themselves and the world of work to make intentional educational, career, and life decisions. This belief is illustrated through our WPU career design approach:

As you continue your education here, there are several ways to connect with us. We offer three classes in the curriculum (hyperlink to course catalog), events, and programming during the academic year, career fairs as well as other fun ways to engage with our employer partners. Did you know ALL of our traditional undergraduates complete an internship before graduation? That’s right! They do! The WPU Works! Internship Program is facilitated by our team – contact us directly if you have any questions.

Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with us via WPU Connect or try out our Express Hours (quick 15 minute appointments) between 11am-1pm, Monday-Thursday when school is in session.
