Career Services

About

Services are available to prospective students, current students, alumni, staff, faculty, and community members. We provide career exploration opportunities such as job shadowing and internship programs, part-time jobs during the school year and summers, and help with job placement as students near graduation.

Career Services strives to provide resources and information on topics such as job search strategies, resume and cover letter development, interview techniques, occupational outlook, job market trends, graduate programs, and technology impact on the job search. Additionally, Career Services, in cooperation with the Iowa College Recruiting Network (ICoRN), organizes three Career Interview Days for current students, and William Penn hosts one or two Career Fairs for students, alumni, and the community annually.

Get your foot in the door… you will get skills and knowledge and confidence

an internship, but you certainly will regret not taking one.”
