Fall 2020 at CO-OPS + CAREERS

WITS News - September 10, 2020 - 4:42pm

Welcome back to campus, we are so happy to see students walking the halls again! In light of Covid19 we are operating a bit differently this semester.

For the Fall 2020 semester our office is open with limited in-person services, Monday – Friday from 8:15am – 4:45pm. Stop by 101 Wentworth Hall to ask a question, pick-up resources, or just to stay hi to the two staff members on campus that day. Before you enter our space we ask that you:

  • Wear a mask.
  • Display the “CLEARED” screen on your CoVerified App.
  • Are the only visitor at the reception desk/in the office.

All CO-OP + CAREER Advising appointments will be conducted virtually.  Below are instructions for making and attending remote appointments. You can meet with your CO-OP + CAREER advisor by phone, or video session via Zoom. Schedule today through WITworks, by calling 617-989-4101, or stop by the office.

Why Take the Career Outcomes Survey?

WITS News - July 29, 2020 - 6:47pm

TL;DR: To help current and prospective students make informed decisions about their future.

Each year CO-OPS + CAREERS asks recent Wentworth grads, at commencement and again 6 months later, to share their plans for life after Wentworth through the Career Outcomes survey. This annual initiative captures a snapshot of hiring trends, challenges, and opportunities that each graduating class faces.  Once collected, we compile the responses in an anonymous report that shares the story of the most recent Wentworth graduating class with the goal of providing current and future students with the information they need to make decisions about their major and career goals. Check out the Class of 2019 report here.

Responding to the Career Outcomes Survey can be intimidating, especially in light of recent times. After all, it’s a survey asking whether or not you are currently employed or heading to grad school, which for many is a challenging question in this job market. Let us be clear in the purpose of this survey: It is not to measure your individual career success. Your response helps Wentworth and the Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development understand how to best support you and future graduates.

Share Your Plans with Us here: bit.ly/WentworthClassOf2020

All Class of 2020 Graduates are encouraged to take the Career Outcomes Survey, regardless of your current career status. The information you are able to provide can have a significant impact on the choices your Wentworth peers make and can also influence how the University supports your future. All responses will remain confidential.

We also understand if you are concerned about your search during this time. We encourage you to make an appointment with CO-OP + CAREER Advisor whenever you need it. Whether you are seeking a quick check-in or a more in-depth discussion, we are here to help.

To make an appointment with your CO-OP + CAREER Advisor call the front desk at 617.989.4101 or visit our website for more information about scheduling virtually.
