Career Services

Online Students

Students taking online courses from CWU have access to the same services provided to on-campus students and CWU alumni.

Career Services is still able to provide help with choosing your major, editing resumes or cover letters, improving interviewing skills, providing assistance for job searching, and much more. Let this page be every online student's one stop shop for everything Career Services can provide an online student.

What Can I Do With My Major?

This page is a great resource that will help you to determine what you can do with the major you are pursuing. There are resources that help you figure out career paths based off your major included on the page. This page is here to help you connect the dots, linking CWU majors to their respective careers.

Wildcat Career Network

Want to get a job, internship, or other career experience, but have no place to start? The Wildcat Career Network is an amazing resource that helps students with any level of experience find jobs, improve their resume, cover letter, interviewing skills, and career readiness. There are tools where employers can actually search for students by resume, so it really is a fantastic resource. And it's completely free!

Video Mock Interviews Via Wildcat Career Network

The purpose of a mock interview is to provide you with an opportunity  to practice your interviewing skills in an environment similar to an  actual interview. As an online student, you have the opportunity to do mock interviews through the Wildcat Career Network (WCN). After logging in to WCN, click on the Resources link on the left hand menu, then click Mock Interviews from the drop down. 

Remote Career Counseling

Online career guidance via web tools such as Skype is a service for Central Washington University students and alumni. This service is designed to assist individuals who are not able to meet with a career counselor in person. Please submit your meeting request to career@cwu.edu. We will also review resumes and cover letters via email.
