The Career Center — located in the David Campus Center — empowers students and alumni to make the connection between academic preparation and the world of work. The office is a resource available to all students starting in their freshman year. Through our web site students can have access to the office 24/7. The staff of the Career Center office uses a systematic approach of self-assessment, experiential learning, and their knowledge of the changing marketplace. The Career Office conducts occupational interest inventories and provides information on career related work experiences, resume writing and interviewing skills training, and networking. The Career Center also develops and cultivates employer relations to enhance recruitment activities of businesses, educational institutions and other organizations.
A few of the special events that prepare our students for the world of work beyond Walsh University include Professor for a Day, the Dining Etiquette Dinner and Dress for Success. The Career Center also partners with various faculty members for targeted special career programs and events as well. Resume referral and interview appointments with employers are scheduled for students registered with the Career Center at the employer's request.
The Career Center maintains and constantly updates The Career Resource Library that includes career/job search resource books; graduate school information; and local and national internship/fellowship information. The Web-based resume referral system is updated daily with employment opportunities available to students and alumni. The Office of Career Center sponsors various career related events throughout the year that are designed to inform students about career options and opportunities. The Career Center collaborates with other colleges to sponsor The Stark County Collegiate Job Fair, The Northeast Ohio Teacher Education Day (NOTED), and CareerFest. The Career Center hosts the Nursing/Physical Therapy Job Fair and the Summer Job and Internship Fair on campus each year.
