FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN )- Wright State University tells 2 NEWS that 75% of graduating students have a plan after they receive their diploma.

They say that they mean entering the workforce or continuing their education, but alumni are offered career help indefinitely.

The university recently added a career development center in engineering, career support personnel in the college of business and an internship person in the college of science and mathematics.

Those aren’t the only tools to help.

“While they’re here, they have a series of different activities, resume writing workshops, we have our own database.  We tie into Jobs Ohio, Ohio Means Interns database as well.  Our career services professionals come and present in the classroom help students prepare how to interview.  We do mock interviews on a regular basis,” says Joseph Slater, WSU’s Interim Associate VP of Career and Workforce Development.

The university also offers outreach programs for students K through 12 here in the Miami Valley.

A new session begins on June 9.
