Career and Professional Development

The W&L Office of Career and Professional Development supports and empowers students and alumni to discover, navigate and achieve their career and professional goals through hands-on advising and tailored resources, programs and events. We seek to engage with you individually to explore your interests, abilities and passions, equip you with the skills and tools needed to achieve career success, and develop the confidence to pursue your goals. From navigating your career interests to building your resume, searching for internships to preparing for a final job interview, we are here to help you every step of the way.

Application Resources
Our office has resources to help you draft your resume, CV, and cover letter as well how to ace your interview. Log in to Handshake to make an appointment with a Career Counselor to get started and find helpful handouts in the resource library.
Resources for Diverse Students
The Office of Career and Professional Development (CPD) supports ALL W&L students. These resources explore some of the unique issues diverse students may encounter in the job search process. We offer career advice, job search resources, on- and off-campus resources, and FAQs. While all CPD Advisors can assist you, Lorri Olan P’17, Senior Associate Director - Diversity Initiatives Lead, serves on the Office of Inclusion and Engagement Advisory Board and is Faculty Advisor to the Comunidad Latina Estudiantil (CLE).
