Counseling Services and Career Center

WPCC provides free, confidential counseling for its students through the Career Center. This service is offered on an as-needed basis to currently enrolled full or part-time students who may be experiencing issues that affect them individually or that may affect their academic progress. Students may receive short-term counseling to address or resolve personal issues.  If, after initial assessment, it is determined that students need highly specialized or long-term services, a referral will be made to appropriate resources within the community for further assistance.  Career Services may assist students experiencing financial difficulties with information about community support services, such as utility payment assistance, food, or housing.

Career exploration and counseling are also available to all current students and alumni who are undecided or ambiguous about their career plans and/or academic program. Career assessments may be utilized to assist students in identifying future careers. These services are confidential and available by appointment.  Resume assistance and mock interviews are also provided by Career Center staff, by appointment.  WPCC's Career Center, located in Hildebrand Hall, room 143, houses a variety of print and computer resources to assist students with career exploration, resume building and interview skills.
