Let’s Collaborate: Your guidance and support are essential.
Student Employment Services
For many students, student employment represents a major contribution in financing their education. There are many jobs and opportunities available on Handshake, our student employment platform. It is possible for students who do not receive work-study to successfully find employment and pay for many of their educational expenses by working on campus.

Career Is Everywhere
While the ASCC staff and career professionals on campus support students in their career development, every WSU professional has a career story to share and as a result can provide unique career development support.
Students often report that they feel pressure to choose the perfect major because that decision will determine the outcome of their entire career. By sharing your story and connecting students with others in your network you can help dispel the myth that individuals have linear career paths. Statistics tell is that 5 years post-graduation, approximately 27% of graduates are employed in a field related to their major (Forbes, 2017).
Career Development Model
In general, career professionals break down the career development process into four stages: assessment, exploration, engagement, and action/post-graduation transition. The ASCC developed its own model which reflects some WSU specific activities.
High Impact Educational Practices
Internship and Experiential Learning Resources
We highly recommend that all students complete at least one internship during their WSU career.
Students may learn about internship opportunities through Handshake, Career Expos and their own networking efforts.
In addition to internships, students may engage in these experiential education opportunities.
Resources for Internship Funding
We encourage students to seek paid internships, however, in some industries, including non-profit organizations, this may not be a feasible option. A number of WSU college and departments offer funding to assist students in their internship pursuits including
