WESLEYAN CAREER CENTER

41 Wyllys

 

The Wesleyan Career Center provides information and advising on a variety of issues from internships and time away to graduate school, professional schools, fellowships, and career options. Since students may struggle with the relationship between academic choice and career, counselors at the center are available to students on these and other issues.

 

The Center offers a variety of resources that students are urged to use throughout their undergraduate careers as their own interests and needs dictate.  A weekly newsletter is emailed to students throughout the academic year. These newsletters announce the various programs of the center, fellowship and scholarship information, as well as other application deadlines and advanced-study information.

 

Whether you are a first-year student, sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student, focused or clueless, workshops and programs sponsored by the Career Center are a great way to help you make better informed decisions regarding internships, jobs, graduate or professional school. If you have questions about any of the programs and services we offer, please feel free to call ext. 2180 or stop by.   Additionally, some counselors are dedicated to serving certain special interests such as Health Professions and Pre-Law.
