Why Use Career Services?

Internships and co-ops are excellent opportunities to build your resume and develop relationships in the field. They provide on-the-job experience and a preview of what work in your chosen field is really like. In addition, you can learn skills that cannot be facilitated in in the classroom and will also enhance your resume. A college degree is the first step towards a career goal but will not go far without being accompanied by both, relevant experience and professional networking. 

How Do You Start? 

Wright State University Career Services provides expert guidance for you—from incoming freshmen to alumni. Whether you need help: exploring careers with your major, building a resume or CV, with mock interviews, networking with professionals, finding internships, or applying to graduate school, you have a college-specific dedicated career consultant to help every step of the way. We prepare students like you for tomorrow’s workforce through experiential learning, then help you transition into a professional career upon graduation. We assist with obtaining mutually beneficial internships that enhance your access to employers in the region and collaborate with faculty and staff to help prepare you for the transition from the classroom to the workforce.
