Career Development Center


From The Career Development Center

We are pleased to announce that as of this month the Career Services office will be known as The Career Development Center. Our mission will remain the same for current students and alumni. We changed our name to reflect the fact that career planning is a developmental process that starts freshman year and lasts throughout your professional career.

Career Fairs

We would like to invite you to our career fair, which will be hosted at the Macomb campus October 1st from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Any business interested in attending this amazing event can register through our web site at And to thank you for coming, a $25 discount is given to WIU alumni! If you are interested in attending the career fair as a job seeker, there is no cost to attend.

The Law Enforcement & Justice Administration Career Fair will be held on Tuesday, September 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and there is no cost for employers to attend.

Job Shadowing

In order to provide students with additional learning opportunities about their professions of interest, we would like to encourage alumni to jump on board to provide a job shadowing experience. These experiences typically last an hour to half a day, depending on how long you want to commit. If interested in providing a job shadow for a WIU student please contact our office for more information.   

We look forward to another great year helping current students and alumni to market their education and skills effectively in order to be competitive in today’s workforce.
