WWS Undergraduate Career Services provides support to students interested in governmental and non-governmental public service jobs and internships. The WWS Undergraduate Career office does not place students; students are responsible for securing their own jobs or internships. Online career resources for public service internships and job opportunities are available.
WWS undergraduate career support activities and resources include career advice, weekly job and internship leads via email, career panels and networking opportunities with alumni. The program also provides funding for unpaid summer public service internships; the use of fax machines, telephones and computers; and access to student evaluations of previous internship opportunities. Also available to WWS students are the extensive resources on hand in the WWS Placement Resource Center.
Students seeking help regarding graduate school or private-sector employment will be referred to the University's Office of Career Services for primary support. Students interested in pursuing a job or internship in public service are asked to submit a career planning form and résumé to Monica Ruscil, Director of Undergraduate Career Services, in early November. Juniors should complete the "Public-Service Summer Internship Search" form; seniors should complete the "Public-Service Job Search" form.
