The Center’s innovative approach to career education encourages students to design their own careers by exploring the intersection among their interests, the skills they have and wish to acquire, and market demand. The Gordon Career Center links students to alumni and employers across the globe in fields that reflect the impressive breadth of opportunities explored by Wesleyan graduates.
