Developing a 4-Year Plan can provide you with direction and ideas to assist in your overall career and professional development process.
Handshake — The Career Center provides all students access to a Handshake account with which they can access over 5,000 opportunities and employers.
MyMentor — MyMentor is a partnership between the Career Center and the Wofford College Alumni Office that provides an online platform for students to connect with alumni.
Scouted — The Career Center partners with Scouted, a job matching platform that identifies appropriate job and internship opportunities for students and alumni. Scouted focuses on non-technical roles across industries, including financial firms, technology companies, consulting firms and high-growth startups. Scouted is free for candidates because it generates revenue on contingency placements paid by their clients/employers. Every time a Wofford student or graduate accepts an offer through Scouted, Scouted makes a donation back to the Career Center so we can continue investing in our community’s professional development.

Internships are a great way to learn what you do and don’t want to do after graduation. Participating in an internship has been proven to increase starting salaries and the chances of getting hired. We have a recommended internship schedule.
The Career Center may be able to support your summer internship with a stipend. For more information, contact Rebecca Parker, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the Career Center, we encourage students to engage in purposeful self-reflection when choosing a major. It is important for students to identify their interests, abilities and goals for their time at Wofford. By working closely with a Career Center staff member, students are encouraged to conduct an online self-assessment that guides students through major selection, potential career ideas and a course of action.
