- Now is the time to convert your Handshake account! The process is simple; you'll need to change your email address from wcupa.edu to a private one and use that to log on. Everything you have in the system will remain including uploaded resumes, job applications, and message communications. Do this before your graduate.
- We want to know about your plans. We are eager to hear about your post-graduation plans which you can share through the First Destination Survey. If you don’t have your plans finalized yet, that is common and completely okay, we still hope to hear from you.
- At the Career Development Center, our services, including one-on-one appointments, continue to be available to you as a future alum. Overall, we encourage you to remain active and engaged in your career and professional development.
Schedule an Appointment
A Career Counselor is ready to meet with you to talk about any of your career needs. All scheduling is handled through Handshake, which can be accessed by both current students and alumni. Log in using your WCU Network ID (e.g., AB654321@wcupa.edu) and password. Alumni may create their own username (a valid email address) and password.
Once signed on, select the Career Center button and you will find an option labeled ‘Appointment’. From here you can select the day and time that works best for you. Your counselor will be altered, approve the selected time, and send you any follow up instructions if necessary.
Drop In Hours
There will be no drop-in hours available during the Summer and Winter break. Drop-in hours will only be available during the Fall and Spring semesters.
Need feedback on your resume? Have career questions but only have a set amount of time? Come to our drop-in hours for 15-minutes, first come, first served appointments.
Request A program
The Career Development Center (CDC) welcomes requests from faculty, staff, and student organizations/groups to deliver career-related programs and workshops! We offer a variety of educational topics and can customize a program for your needs.
CDC professional staff deliver the majority of programs, including class presentations; our Career Ambassadors (CAs) are trained peer educators who perform outreach and conduct programs, typically in the residence halls and to student groups.
Please submit requests at least two weeks in advance. If you have any questions or wish to first discuss program topics and ideas, please email the Career Development Center or call 610-436-2501.
