Canvas: Framing Your Vocation and Career

Our Canvas series for sophomores goes beyond building self-awareness and also includes distinct events to help students explore possible careers. Discover all four Canvas events.  

Taco Tuesdays

Meet alumni in various industries and roles over a taco dinner and learn more about their careers. Interested in finance? HR? Research? Consulting? Creative Arts? Nonprofits? Grad School? Sales? There's a Taco Tuesday for that!  

Externship Day

Externship Day is a one-day job shadowing opportunity for Wheaton students hosted by Wheaton alumni at their companies or organizations across Chicagoland.  

Networking Night 

Spend an evening with 40 young alumni at Networking Night, and learn about their career paths, ask them questions, and discover if an industry or role might be a good fit for you.  

myInternship

Students are able to process their internship experience(s) through this reflective curriculum, and begin thinking about how their internship impacts where they'd like to land in the future. Download a sample of myInternship.

LinkedIn 

A great way for students to begin exploring is seeing where alumni have landed on LinkedIn. We teach students how to leverage LinkedIn's alumni search feature to discover where Wheaties have landed jobs; and provide LinkedIn resources for students to use as they begin to reach out to alumni that interest them.  

Wheaton in Network (WiN) 

WiN is Wheaton's custom networking platform for students and alumni to connect. This is another platform where students can connect with alumni and ask questions about career, graduate school, post-grad life, and more.
