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.
