Career Services

We help our students and alumni of Wilmington College to define a unique vision for their career and life, and connect them in multidimensional, personalized ways to the resources, people, organizations, and opportunities that will enable them to make that vision a reality. These developed skills are necessary to manage life-work planning through career education and career counseling services. The Office of Career Services is here to help students connect between their academic work and aligns to the world of work beyond the classroom. Whether you are thinking about internships, summer jobs, on/off-campus employment, work after graduation, or graduate school, we are here to assist.

All the services offered are geared towards the ultimate objective of being career ready and helping students find their unique place in the world and obtain meaningful employment. The primary goal of the office is to teach students and alumni the career readiness competencies they need to independently handle their life-career planning. However, the office does not serve as a job placement agency for students/alumni but connects them to career/employment opportunities whether on campus or in the marketplace.
