Career Connections recognizes that career development and career-related conversations are happening all around campus- in the classrooms, in advising appointment, in the residence halls- and not just in our office. We want to partner with faculty and staff and support these conversations with the tools and resources needed to assist students as they explore their career options. 

Each college has its own Career Consultant who will design and provide in-class presentations, mock interview events, employer guest speakers and anything career-related. Faculty and staff are the key to developing a career culture at TWU and together we can better assist students with the choices they face. 

If you are a campus employer and want to post an on-campus work opportunity, you can do so here.
