Career Counseling and Assessment
Career counseling and assessment is available to all Westminster students and alumni. Individual assistance with career exploration, planning and decision-making is available by appointment.
A Westminster education gives you the skills you need to succeed after you graduate. However, the Career Resource Center gives you the skill you need to get the job or enter the graduate school you desire.
The Career Passages Certificate program prepares you for life after Westminster. Whether you want to begin your career after graduation or go on to graduate school, the Career Passages Certificate program will help you master the skills you need to be successful. We have tools tailored for students at every stage, from freshmen crystallizing their goals to upper classmen realizing they need more expertise to take their education to the next step. To sign-up for the Career Passage program call the Career Center for an appointment.
