Career Services for Students

Your career planning starts now.

It’s never too early to start looking ahead. After all, you’ll only be at WPU for so long before you’re managing that business, arguing that case, or working on that thesis.

When the time is right, our career counselors can help you create a strong resume, conduct an effective job search, prepare for job interviews and contact and meet potential employers through internships, co-ops and at onsite career fairs.
