Career Services

Return to: Center for Student Success 

The Career Services Center offers resources and advice to help Walden students proactively develop and manage their careers. Students can initiate their use of the Center by attending a live webinar to orient themselves to services and resources or by scheduling an individual telephone advising appointment through the online scheduling system available on the myWalden portal. During an individual career advising appointment, the Career Services Advisor and the student discuss the student’s background and qualifications and set goals for future advising appointments. Advice is tailored to each student’s individual needs.

The Walden Career Services Center also offers online tools for self-knowledge; an extensive directory of resources for job opportunities, professional associations, and career information; templates and advice for résumé and curriculum vitae development; and strategies for networking and interviewing. The staff delivers live webinars on a variety of career-related topics each month. These webinars are archived on the Career Services Center site for those unable to attend the live webinars. Archived webinars include: online social networking, crafting an effective résumé, navigating the Federal hiring process, strategies for getting published, and other topics. The OptimalResume system offers students the opportunity to develop a résumé, curriculum vitae, electronic portfolio, and a personal website to house these materials. The Career Services Center also maintains a blog featuring student success stories. All students and alumni are invited to join the Walden University Career Services Center LinkedIn group to build their professional networks.

Students may access the online Career Services Center via the myWalden university portal.
