The Career Center is here to help students figure out their next steps. We work with all WashU students from freshman to graduates and PHDs. It is never too late or too early to visit the Career Center. Please encourage your students to visit us and utilize our online guides and resources. For a full list of our services, please contact us.
The Career Center has trained Career Advisors who will meet one on one with your students to discuss resumes and cover letters, internship and post graduate search strategies, negotiating offers, and much more. Whether a student knows exactly what they want to do after graduation or they are still uncertain, our Advisors and Student Career Peers are here to help.
One of the first steps for students is to think about their interests. What are they passionate about? What is their dream job? How do their interests translate into a career? We offer workshops, as well as self assessment tools, including the MBTI, StrengthsQuest and Strong Interest Inventory to help students explore their interests. Students should stop by the Career Center or call to get access to self-assessment tools.
Career Resource Library
The Career Center houses a resource library where students can research information on careers, internships, majors and more. Students are welcome to take printed versions of our advising handouts, located on our library shelves. These resources are available during normal office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.
Email Communication/ Career Interest Groups
Students should register with our system CAREERLink, and indicate their career interests in their profile and opt into Career Interest Groups. We will then send targeted notifications of events and opportunities, such as alumni information, networking events, information sessions hosted by employers, employer receptions/programs, interview and resume resources, along with targeted internships and post grad opportunities.
Mock interviews are available to students who would like to practice their interview techniques. Students may practice interviewing with Career Center advisors or counselors. We also offer online interview preparation and practice through Big Interview.
