Welcome to the Gordon Career Center

The Gordon Career Center works with students of all class years to:

  • Translate their liberal education, and campus and community experiences, into a lifetime of meaningful work
  • Explore their interests, personality, skills, and experiences to identify potential career options that fit their unique profile
  • Write professional resumes, CVs, cover letters, and personal statements for job, internship, fellowship, and graduate/professional school applications
  • Find meaningful summer opportunities to bolster and build professional skills and experiences related to their career aspirations
  • Conduct successful job and internship searches, prepare and practice for interviews, and build strong relationships with employers and Wesleyan alumni
  • Research and connect with professional schools, graduate schools and degree programs, craft competitive applications, and navigate the school decision-making process
  • Transition to life after Wesleyan whether through employment, a fellowship, graduate or professional school, a service program, volunteer opportunity, or personal adventure

The Gordon Career Center at Wesleyan University is excited to announce the launch of its new intuitive and modern career management platform, Handshake. The new, mobile-ready recruiting application is designed to help students discover and explore jobs, internships, organizations, and events all personalized to their specific career interests. Handshake will replace the current application, CareerDrive.
