Career Center

334 Student Union, (937) 775-2556,


The Career Center at Wright State University is committed to helping students and alumni develop career and life planning skills, acquire experience, master job search strategies, and seek rewarding employment.  The Career Center facilitates mutually beneficial relationships between employers, faculty and staff, students and alumni in order to meet the dynamic needs of today's workplace. 

Career Choice - Investigate and Decide

Uncertain about an academic major? Uncertain about a career direction? Not sure of your interests, values, or skills? Looking for a career that matches your personality? Just having a hard time getting started?  The Career Center offers tools and personal advising to help. 

Student Employment - Find Part-Time Work

Available to current students, student employment positions are paid jobs that do not require a particular major. Duties are usually general in nature. Opportunities exist on campus and off campus.  Student employment jobs are excellent résumé builders and may provide field-related experience.   To view job postings with application instructions, use the Career Center login. 

Co-ops and Internships - Learn and Apply in the Workplace

Co-ops and internships are work opportunities consistent with a student's course of study. Opportunities may be full-time or part-time. Participation in the co-op and internship program is available beginning sophomore year, to students who meet the academic requirements.  Students who register their co-op or internship through the Career Center will receive a co-op notation on their transcript. There are no fees for co-op registration. The co-op course does not carry academic credit, but registration for full-time co-op confers some benefits of full-time student status. If you are a student in the College of Engineering & Computer Science, you will want to contact the Brandeberry Career Development Center.

Job Search - Get Tips, Be Competitive

Career Center advisers can provide valuable assistance in developing and evaluating job search tools. Advisers assist with developing the content, competitiveness, and style of résumés and cover letters.  The Mock Interview Program allows prospective job candidates to practice their interviewing skills in a simulated interview environment. Mock interviews provide constructive feedback to the participants to enhance job prospects by improving interview skills.  Students and alumni interested in participating in On-Campus Interviews must first complete their profile and upload a résumé with The Career Center.

Events - Meet Experts and Network

The Career Center hosts  a variety of events throughout the year to support and connect students, alumni, and employers.  In addition, employers may schedule recruiting events through us.
These networking and recruiting events include on-campus interviewing, career fairs, information sessions, information tables, and special opportunities for faculty and staff.
We also post events and deadlines for special programs with which we have formal affiliations (e.g. Disney Internship Program, The Washington Center, etc.).
