LIFE AT WSU

  • Career Services for Alumni

    As a graduate of Worcester State University, you are welcome to access all services the Career Services Office offers at no cost for 1 semester following your graduation. After that period, you may make appointments during WSU’s summer and winter breaks, when current students are away from campus. (Check WSU’s Academic Calendar for dates.)

    Services available to alumni include:

    • Career counseling for advancement and career change
    • Graduate school planning advice
    • Job-search consultations
    • Information on job and career fairs

    Before making an appointment with a career counselor, please set up an account in LancerLink, our online internship and job database.

  • Planning for Graduate School
    Whether you are pursuing a career that requires an advanced degree or want to increase your earning power and competitiveness in the job market, deciding to go to graduate school is a big decision. Give yourself plenty of time to make this decision. It may take up to 2 years to go through the selection, application, standardized testing, and acceptance processes.

    Our office can help guide you. Our graduate school planning services for alumni include helping you:
    • Determine if graduate school is right for you
    • Find graduate school programs that fit your needs and budget
