Career Guidance

Career Coaching

For help planning the next steps of your career, or struggling with keeping the current job (even one that is not affiliated with your current major), please come and discuss! There is a concept called “work tolerance” where you build the skills that are needed to retain a job. Come discuss your current work or work-life balance struggles. Or help plan out your dreams!

Finding Your Strengths

It’s hard to answer the last question of every interview, “why should we hire you?” Like a deer in the headlights, many people fumble through this. Instead, quote your strengths and let them know who you are. For help, check out VIA.

Career Fairs and Associated Events

Every year, Spokane participates with Gonzaga, Whitworth and EWU in organizing the FUZE career fair at the Spokane convention center during Spring semester. Our academic programs also hold campus career fairs throughout the year. Stay in touch to hear when employers are available to talk to our students. These are great opportunities for informational interviews!
