Your Best Work
Most of us need a job, and Wake Forest will help you achieve that – but also much more:
We’ll help you find a context in which you may do your best work.
Wake Forest University’s Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) equips students with the tools and confidence to navigate the often daunting path from college to career.
And our unique approach yields results.
For seven consecutive years, at least 95% of students in each graduating class were employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. Additionally, we’re one of very few top national universities to offer five college-to-career courses for credit. The OPCD developed Ready7, a step-by-step process that gives students a clear set of accomplishable actions to be prepared, confident, and ready for career and life.
Students engage with employers through hundreds of experiences, including industry-specific Career Treks, career fairs, “boot camps,” and diversity recruiting events. After graduation, students will continue to be supported throughout their careers by the national-award-winning Alumni Personal and Career Development Center.
Early and intentional engagement: that’s the philosophy of the OPCD – and Wake Forest as a whole.
Get ready to be inspired, challenged, and prepared for your future by engaging with the OPCD team from Day One.
