The Academic Success and Career Center has launched the Cougar Career Community, a Professional Series that helps students connect with a network of professionals. Working with our on-and-off campus employers we have developed specific Career Discussions to help students understand and network with this vast network of professionals.

Please register for the events on Handshake to receive Zoom contact information.

Starting off our series will be E&J Gallo Winery on Sept. 9 who will focus on personal selling in a virtual age. They will cover topics that will be very instrumental to students success at the upcoming Career Expo, including how to present yourself professionally online, sell yourself at Career Fairs, market yourself as a student athlete and an elevator pitch workshop.

On Sept. 16, City Year‘s Marcus Ramirez will share his insights and experience working in the non-profit sector. Before he began working with City Year, Marcus served in AmericaCorps and will be speaking to students about worldly travel.

As one of the largest employers of students at WSU Pullman, University Recreation remains a popular and sought after student employment position. Membership Coordinator David Grassi will connect with students to speak about what he looks for in student employees and the hiring process at UREC on Sept. 23.

Amazon, on Sept. 30 will finish off our series talking about open employment with their company, leading up to their visit at the WSU Career Expo.

This series will help students prepare for the Career Expo and Technical Fair which will be held virtually for the first time this year. Employers will be meeting with students on October 5, 6 and 7 in group sessions and individual 1:1 appointments. Students are encouraged to sign up for interview slots ahead of time.
