What Career Services resources did you utilize?

During my years at WCSU I utilized the resume builder, interviewing workshop, internship program, and job placement. I can’t be thankful enough for all that carreer services office did for me while a WCSU undergraduate student.

Advice to WCSU students:

Take full advantage of your time and experience with WCSU. Make sure you get involved with school organizations on campus and get involved with as many school activities as possible. Starting sophomore year or even sooner you should visit career services office to meet with an advisor to see if you can pick up a paid internship and credit earned internship for your major, either for the regular school year or for the summer.

The only thing better than a great WCSU education is to add as much experience as you can to your professional resume. Career Services can help you to do that!
