Helping Your Student

At NWU’s Career Center, students receive assistance developing their career plan through aligning their interests, values, and skills with their major, experiences, and future goals. Through one-on-one appointments, our trained career counselors can help students explore options, conduct a job/internship search, create a resume/cover letter, practice interviewing skills, apply to graduate/professional schools, and much more. We sincerely hope that your student will take advantage of these services early and often to enhance their educational experience and career readiness upon graduation.
