Career Services

Our Mission

WKU Career Services helps students and alumni identify and reach their career and employment goals, helps employers access an educated and highly trained workforce, and supports faculty and staff by providing opportunities to increase student learning and skill development.


WKU Career Services was originally established as a placement office whose main goal was to find jobs for our existing graduates.  Since then, our role has expanded to include career exploration, career engagement, career preparation, and academic career guidance.
