Career Connection Team

Guiding you with tools, resources and connections to help you choose your career path and become prepared and confident for the professional world.

At Ohio Wesleyan University, Career Connection is integral in the OWU Connection and the continuum of the OWU experience. Our vision is that 100% of OWU students are impacted by Career Connection, and because of this impact, are ready to succeed in life after OWU.

More than a place to find job leads or brush up on resume skills (though we do that too), Career Connection supports all aspects of career development throughout a student’s time at OWU—and beyond.

To provide career development, planning, and job search assistance to students and alumni by offering resources to help connect theory and practice with meaningful career objectives and by building partnerships with faculty, staff, alumni, parents, employers, and graduate schools.

We have 4 Career Catalysts representing 8 Career Communities. Each Career Catalyst will help you explore options, connect directly with employers, speak with/shadowing Alumni, find internships/job opportunities, work on resumes/interviewing, and more!
