“It’s always really nice to know that when I am ready to move on to a different career I can always rely on Peace to help me through the process. It’s encouraging that the one-on-one support I was able to obtain while enrolled at Peace will continue in my life as an alumni no matter how far away I go. That safety net will always be there when I need it.”

How Does Distance Career Counseling Work?
Distance career counseling is another step taken by WPU to continue its effort to be at the forefront of career counseling innovation. Career Services counselors will use Zoom, a secure video conferencing program approved by the NCDA Ethics Committee.
Zoom can be used specifically for students and alumni who are not available for on-campus career counseling or who may live outside of the Raleigh area. Students or alumni can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an appointment (even after hours) using Zoom.
According to the National Career Development Association (NCDA), distance counseling has been growing steadily in popularity over the past few years at most major institutions. The NCDA attributes convenience and participant anonymity as reasoning for the program’s increase of interest.
