Four Year Plan

Developing a Four Year Plan can provide you with direction and ideas to assist in your overall career and professional development process.

Digital Resources

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. Visit scouted.io to get started!

Internships

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, parkerrm@wofford.edu.

Assessments

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.

Terrier Talks Podcast

Terrier Talks is focused on highlighting the interesting journeys of Wofford College graduates. On this podcast you will hear and enjoy interviews with an alumni that uses their History degree to become medical school professors and an alumni that uses their Business Economics degree to work in the field of marketing. The stories highlighted show that Wofford alumni are not defined by their major and can do anything with their degree.
