The Office of Personal and Career Development asked that the following information be shared with parents and family members of graduating seniors.
It’s no surprise that our students find themselves in a wide and diverse range of functions and industries following graduation. In fact, 98 % of the Class of 2013 was employed or attending graduate or professional school six months after graduation*.
The time is near for us to bid farewell to another crop of excellent seniors, and the Office of Personal and Career Development recently announced First Destination data collection for the Class of 2014. The First Destination form provides an opportunity for seniors to share where they will go and what they will do immediately following graduation and is valuable information for the university. It takes less than one minute to complete and can be found here on the OPCD website. Please encourage your senior student to complete the form.
For those with seniors still seeking a job or admission into graduate school, it’s not too late. OPCD career coaches are available to help review resumes and LinkedIn profiles, provide networking and search tips, and offer mock interviews and professional development resources.
Seniors students still seeking might also consider the Wake Forest Connects, a large-scale networking event that gives students and recent alums (class of 2014) the opportunity to engage prominent alumni from various industries and job functions. The next Wake Forest Connects event is scheduled for June 5 in Washington DC at 6:00 p.m. For more information visit the Career Connects webpage.
