MACOMB, IL -- To better reflect its varied services and programming available to Western Illinois University students and alumni, WIU's Career Services has been renamed the Career Development Center, according to Director Martin Kral.

According to Kral, in recent years the office has seen an increase in students waiting until their senior year before starting a resume, practicing interviewing skills, networking and preparing for career searches.

"These activities should be developed during their years on campus and not left for the last semester," Kral added. "The name change reflects the necessity for students to begin their career planning and preparation during their first year on campus. We're here to help them develop outstanding skills so they are prepared to face the interview gauntlet with confidence and poise."
