Career Services

Mission

We help our students 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.

The Office of Career Services is here to help you make the connection between the work you are doing in your classes to the world of work beyond the classroom. Whether you are thinking about internships, summer jobs or work after graduation, we are here to help.

ATTENTION:

In response to recent concerns over COVID-19 (coronavirus), recommendations by State of Ohio Governor Mike Dewine and the State Department of Public Health Wilmington College (main campus) will be closed for the remainder of the spring semester.(updates)

The two events listed below have been postponed, with the plan to be rescheduled at a future date.

WHOLElinkWorkshops & Events

Individual conversations – also called “career counseling”. Don’t worry; you don’t need a career picked out already. These conversations can be about anything from trying to figure out what you might want to do to guidance on salary negotiation (and everything in between).

If you would like to schedule an appointment please call Nina L. Talley, MSM, Ph.D., at 937-481-2299 or email nina.l.talley@wilmington.edu


Workshops – The office will offer regular workshops on a variety of topics including, but not limited to: resume writing, cover letter writing, interview skills, getting started with internships (required of anyone planning to do a credit-bearing internship), and researching career options. Please check the calendar section of WHOLElink for more information.


Career Events – Employers are interested in meeting you and letting you know about the work they do. Throughout the year, Career Services hosts/co-hosts events where students have the opportunity to speak with professionals in a variety of fields to learn more about careers in that area.


On-Campus Interviewing – Employers seeking interns or full time employees may choose to come on campus to interview students for open positions. Opportunities like this rarely happen after you graduate, so take advantage of on-campus interviewing opportunities.


Online resources – A variety of resources on career and internship related topics can be found in WHOLElink under the Resources section in the Document Library.


Graduate school planning – Considering graduate school? Not sure what graduate school is (or if you need to go)? The Career Services Office can help you get started as you are begin considering graduate school and direct you to resources, human and otherwise, to move to the next step.


Internships – Available internships are listed on WHOLElink. Schedule an appointment to start a discussion about completing an internship for credit or simply for the experience.


Campus Jobs – Check WHOLElink for opportunities.
