College-to-career starts here.
The Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) will help you navigate the college-to-career process and get started on the right track from your first days on campus. Whether or not you know what you want to study or where you’d like to work or go to grad school, we can help you. If you ever change your mind, we’re here for you… while you’re a student and even after you’ve graduated.
Be sure to check out the for-credit career courses offered by the OPCD and Wake Forest’s academic department of education. It’s the best way to build your career readiness knowledge and confidence – from clarifying your choice of major to securing great internships to finding a full-time job or getting accepted to graduate school.
Get ready, stay ready. For life.
We’re here to help you craft your unique, individual goals and journey so that you are prepared for whatever adventure awaits when you leave the Forest. Explore the boundless possibilities—across majors, grad schools, careers, and more—and take advantage of our resources and connections to help you flourish in work and life. We’ve even developed a career readiness model called READY7, that you can master the 7 steps to be ready for life after college.
There are so many ways to engage with our office. Whether your end goal is employment, grad school, service, gap year, or something else, we offer resume and personal statement reviews, career coaching, self-assessments, workshops, opportunities to meet and interview with all types of employers, experiential learning stipends, professional development grants, and much more.
To get started, visit our website or stop by our office in Reynolda Hall. We look forward to getting to know you and working with you!
