Internships and Careers

Taking what you learn in the classroom and putting it to work in the real world has a multitude of benefits. It helps you build confidence, get real feedback from people in the field you’re interested in, and make connections for when you’re ready to enter the workforce. You may even discover a new area of focus for your studies that you’re passionate about!

WLC’s Office of Career and Professional Development helps students connect their talents and skills to a fulfilling career path. Our team helps students find appropriate internships for their major, offers professional development and learning opportunities, and connects them with full or part-time job opportunities.

We’re committed to bridging the gap between your college education and career, and making sure you have the skills you need to succeed from day one.
