Career Success Center

Parents

WCSU’s Career Success Center offers services and resources to help students through a four-year plan of Discovering & Exploring, Preparing & Practicing, Experiencing & Assessing and Implementing & Engaging, resulting in successful career exploration, opportunities, and employability.


Career Planning

The National Association of Colleges and Employers provides helpful resources for parents and family members of college students.  The NACE published, A Career Planning Course for Parents and A Parents’ Guide to Career Development describes what you can do to help your student work towards successful career outcomes.  What Parents of Prospective College Students Should Know is a good article for parents with high school juniors and seniors preparing for the college application process.


Posting an Opportunity

Are you a business owner or a company/organization employee in need of an intern or employee?  Post available internships and jobs for WCSU students and alumni on our WESTCONN Works – powered by Purple Briefcase.
