Careers in the Arts
Professional organizations offer information on a variety of relevant topics: job postings, events and conferences, networking, exhibition and research opportunities, competitions, current trends and benchmarking on national and international levels. We recommnend that our students become active participants in order to enhance their personal and professional development. Here are some examples:
WSU Career Services Office
The Career Services Office assists WSU students with resume writing, interviewing skills, internship assistance, and much more. Career Services will educate students and alumni and connect them with the employment community to ensure successful transitions from academia to the workforce. We recommend students to contact the office prior to visiting the office to ensure that walk-in appointments are available.
