We wish to express our gratitude to our generous sponsors of the 2019 Career and Graduate Fair: Orion Strategies and Bankers Life. For future events, employers may access details via Handshake (see below).

Welcome to Wesleyan Career Services

Our mission is to help students transition successfully to Life-After-Wesleyan. See the resources page to help in designing a plan that complements your academic focus and builds a personalized foundation for the future.

Handshake: Introducing our new job/internship search platform

This fall we are debuting Handshake, a full-service platform that allows students to search and apply for jobs and internships locally and nationwide. Signing up as an employer on Handshake is a quick process—less than 5 minutes—and it will allow you to create your own job/internship postings in the future for our students to view. Once signed up, you can go ahead and create any internship or job listings you might have currently available. You can continue to add postings at any time as they become available.
