Undergraduate Education

Great internship and career candidates come from WSU.

Recruiters across the nation said Cougars are among the best prepared to hit the ground running in a “Top 25” ranking of universities published the Wall Street Journal.  WSU’s Academic Success and Career Center (ASCC) plays a major role in students’ success. Its budget stretches to pay the $30,000 annual subscription to an online job-connections database used by 9,500 students and over 9,850 employers. ASCC also pays to host the twice-yearly Career Expo. And it offers career counseling, testing, and for-credit courses; etiquette dinners and industry tours; resume critiques and mock interviews; and on-campus networking events with prospective employers.

With your support, ASCC could do more to expand those services and add valuable others:

  • Create scholarships to help interns with housing, food, and transportation away from school and home.

  • Fill a WSU Career Closet with a bank of professional clothing students could wear to networking events and interviews with employers.

  • Expand career readiness resources to include virtual webinars, trainings, and resume critiques for students and alumni to tap.

  • Develop the WSU Career Speaker series to inspire and empower students to cultivate important personal and professional networks.

Your return-on-investment for contributions to the Joint Career Services Endowment fund goes beyond support for a high-impact WSU program: you will directly benefit the next generation of Cougars as they enter the workforce and impact the state, nation, and world.
