Career Services for Alumni

All Career Development services that are available to students are also available for alumni. If you would like an account in Handshake (a career platform designed for college students and recent graduates) just send a message to Deborah.jones@kwc.edu. Be sure to include your name while you were at Kentucky Wesleyan and your class year.

How you can help
There are multiple ways alumni can help our current students.  The first is to “Hire a Panther!”

Kentucky Wesleyan College is now a Handshake school. Employers can post their open positions free. Just indicate that you want your opening shared at Kentucky Wesleyan College. If you would like us to put your position on Handshake, just send it to Deborah.jones@kwc.edu. As long as your position complies with our posting policies, we are happy to do that.

Attend a Career Fair

  • Fall – Graduate and Experiential Education Fair – This fair includes graduate schools, study abroad, volunteer opportunities, and internships.
  • Spring – Career Fair – This fair is for graduate schools and employers seeking all categories of employees.

Volunteer as an interviewer at our Speed Networking event
This event is held in both the fall and the spring.  It works just like speed dating only for interviewing.  Volunteers are given a question to ask in a four-minute period. Students rotate from table to table where they answer questions at each table.  The event is followed by a reception.

Volunteer as a presenter at Wesleyan into the World
This is a program for juniors held at the beginning of January.  In a conference format, students choose between two topics during each time slot.  Topics include financial planning, what employers seek in candidates, buying insurance, plus many others.

Volunteer to be part of a career panel
Career panels are held frequently on campus and alumni are essential to their success.

To volunteer for any of these, please contact:
