Inspiring Your Future Career Development Through Alumni Engagement

The ASCC is looking for employer alumni looking to share their success stories with our current students. We have a networking workshop set up for our first and second year students who are still exploring their options, and have questions about what WSU can do for them. Students will rotate from table to table, asking questions of employers who were in their shoes not too long ago.

Don’t Cancel Class Program Now Accepting Submissions

The Academic Success and Career Center has launched the Don’t Cancel Class Program in an effort to connect instructors to academic coaches and improve overall student success. This program allows instructors to book a workshop on a day they know they will have to cancel their scheduled class, and one of our facilitators will guide your students through a workshop of your choice. Our workshops focus on strengthening various academic habits necessary to a successful college career.

We offer 50 or 70 minute workshops on:

  • Note Taking Strategies
  • How to Manage Your Motivation and Procrastination
  • Time Management
  • Learning & Study Strategies: How to Earn the Grades you Want!
  • Vanquishing Exams/Midterms/Finals: Strategies for Before, During, and After

In order to have adequate time to prepare your workshop, we generally ask for a two-week prior notice (requests sent with less than a two-week notice will still be reviewed). We will respond to requests within 4 business days.

Feb. 4, 2020 Spring Expo

 

The Spring 2020 Career Expo welcomed more than 100 employers to campus February 4, 2020.

 

This year, the ASCC staff allowed students to check in early and practice their elevator pitch.

 

Despite the school being closed for snow, employers and students attended next day interviews, hosted at the ASCC. A total of 15 companies showed up to interview 102 students for their open positions.

 

We would like to thank again all of our employers who came out to WSU Pullman to meet with our students and share their resources, knowledge and time. We had six companies who sent a total of eleven employers to help review resumes the day before the Expo.
