Investigate Career Options

Conduct Informational Interviews

Want to know what a career is really like? Ask someone with first-hand experience. The informational interview is a chance to spend time with someone who is a professional in the career field that is of interest to you. 

Job Shadow

A job shadow can help you  test drive a career option without the time commitment of an internship.  It’s an opportunity to ask questions, observe a company, and gain perspective about a potential career.

Get a Job or Internship

Internships are career-related work experiences that involve students working in professional settings under the supervision of professionals. Students participating in internships gain valuable workplace skills, improve their marketability, and better prepare themselves for their full-time job searches.


You can volunteer at an organization that interests you, and gain valuable work experience, references, and networking opportunities. Talk with our Volunteer Coordinator or check out Ranger Trak  for a variety of volunteer opportunities.

Student Organizations

Student organizations provide opportunities to develop leadership skills and broaden your social and professional opportunities.  There are over 100 student organizations recognized by Student Activities.  Don't miss out on this valuable opportunity right here at UWP.

Talk to your faculty

Ask faculty about careers options and how previous students have used their degree.
