The Space is Wofford College’s professional development Prepare and entrepreneurship Launch center. Our goal is to develop students so that they are the best prepared for life after Wofford. To do this we take a team approach and work closely with faculty and other staff. Having the opportunity to combine entrepreneurship with professional development makes The Space unique. You can come to The Space to get a resume started or start a business and frankly everything in between.
The Space uses a student development approach to the work. This means that we realize everyone comes to us in a different place, this requires us to empower students in a holistic manner.
The Space believes in a Four Year Approach that encourages students to start on their professional development journey soon after arriving on campus. This typically includes developing a resume in the first semester of their first year.
The research is clear that college graduates will change jobs much more than previous generations. The Space understands this and takes a teaching approach to professional development. Success isn’t just finding the first job – it’s understanding how to find a job. This is a lifelong skill.
