Each of your college years offers opportunities that will bring you closer to the work you’ll love. Career exploration is a process that differs depending upon your interests, experiences and level of motivation.  Wheaton offers an abundance of career resources that included one-to-one advising, an alumni career partner network of more than 500 members, programming for all academic and career-related interests and Wheaton Edge Funding opportunities that will enable you to participate in professional conferences as well as summer experiences.

Perhaps the most important piece of information you can take away from this web page is to understand that you are in charge of your career development. The staff at Career Services and the Wheaton Community as a whole is available to answer your questions, facilitate your career education, connect you to career mentors and help you to make the most of your Wheaton education, but you have to take the initiative. So let’s get started! Take a look at the list of suggested actions you can take regardless of your class year or your level of career development.

  2. Join one of the 200+ student clubs and develop your interests, network and leadership qualities.
  3. Develop your resume with a Career Peer Advisor.
