We serve every student from their first day on campus, to graduation, and beyond.

The Center for Vocation and Career is here to walk alongside every student during their journey of discovery and planning for life beyond Wheaton. Our team includes an exceptional career coaching team, professional staff, and seasoned experts in the field of career development. Along with our staff, we have the best resources at our disposal to help students explore their values, skills, and interests, and potential career opportunities.

One of the first steps students should take in their career development is committing to learning more about themselves through their strengths. Our team is trained in the CliftonStrengths Assessment, used by corporations, non-organizations, churches, and universities globally. 

Based on their chosen major or major of interest, students have a specific career coach for their entire time at Wheaton. Students are encouraged to start meeting with their career coach during their first year on campus. 

As students start to put together the pieces of their career plan, discovering what's possible and then having the opportunity to do it is transformative. We come alongside students to help put their interests into action.

Mastering the student world is one thing, but the professional arena operates completely different than the classroom setting. Our staff is trained and ready to help students prepare to be a professional in any field.
